    I did my first run with the Apple Watch by doing a 5K race today. It tracked my stats very well as I crossed the finish line in 25 minutes and the watch tapped to say I ran 3.2 miles.

    My only question is after you run with the Apple Watch I know it shows you your results right away, but how do you go back and view your results? I can't find out how to do this. The Activity App only shows your overall stats for day and the Workout App which I used to track my run only lets me set up a new run, but doesn't have a results section.

    Can't speak from personal experience (yet); but does that data get logged on your iPhone at all?

    Go to the activity app on iPhone and I think it's logged in there under your results for that day

    iPhone gets a new Activity App when you pair your Apple Watch to your phone, but it only gives you same stats as the Activity App on the Watch (calories, excercise minutes, and standing)

    I haven't seen anywhere on the apple watch, or on the activity app on the iPhone that shows past workouts. But I do sync data to MyFitnessPal & I can see the run that I did yesterday with my watch.

    I think Apple needs to add workout logs somewhere...

    Never mind you are right. It is logged in the Activity App on the iPhone. Just didn't see that I could scroll down to the stats/results for the day. Thanks.

    Activity app on iPhone.

    Look for the workouts section under stand. Click on your workout for more details.

    Doh! Too slow.

    I believe you need to log it as a "workout". The activity app is just a summary.

    In the Activity app on my iPhone I have a "Workouts" section that looks like it only appears on days that you have actually done a workout (makes sense). If you scroll down past the Move, Exercise and Stand sections it should appear. Guessing it also only appears if you saved the workout from the Workout app.

    Edit: beaten to it
