Hi, Today I wokeup and wear my wtach but after 1 hour even I was standing and walking around I realized that blue ring does not move on. I restart both phone and watch. hardreset the watch but nothing changed.
Does anybody know what is going on?

You need to standup every hour and move for a minute for it to work.
I think you misunderstood to me. I know how it works. Just today after wearing my Watch at the morning it does not progress for 3 standing hours. I read some ideas for the solution and tried everything but it does not work.

Are you moving with purpose? I can cook an entire dinner and spend 45 minutes on my feet and my watch thinks I need to stand at 6:50. So annoying. Then I have to wave my arms like crazy and feel like I'm cheating, even though I've *been* standing for far longer than that.

I’ve seen this, too. I can generally get the ring closed for the existing hour by doing curls for 40 seconds.

Apologies. Maybe a reset?! If not it could be a hardware issue.

Actually, I really don't know how and why did it stop working? I walked nearly 400 - 500 steps in 4 or 5 minutes but it didn't work. I think it was a hardware issue. Because even exercise ring did not move any 1 minute.
I followed all the steps written on the link below.

I’m actually having the same issue today. I have clearly been standing more than a minute each hour and it’s not counting. This isn’t the first time it’s happened since getting my AW4.

I had the same thing happen last week. Didn’t know the disable fitness tracking and reboot trick, so after rebooting the watch and phone didn’t work I unpaired and re-paired my watch to fix it. It happened again this morning, but rebooting just the watch fixed it.

I played with a bunch of settings and it’s working. The last time it did it instead of giving me stand credits it was giving me a ridiculous amount of exercise credit.
