    Sounds like you're supposed to pull over and take a walk. It's probably helping you to keep from falling asleep! :confused:

    Better get a move on it, you've got 6 minutes till the hour is over.

    My favorite feature is putting my desk in standing mode. At x:50, my watch always reminds me to stand.... even though I have been standing for hours -__-

    Are you telling me you don't have convertible and co-driver to step on the gas and handle steering wheel while you stand up?
    I though everyone has AW has them by now.

    We see you have the ability to use/pay attention to your iPhone (camera) and :apple:Watch at the same time while driving:eek:, so why can't you just add standing up too?

    Maybe you were stuck in a traffic jam with no movement at all the last 50 Minutes?

    I'm not going to bother explaining why that is - I assume you already know how the Watch works.

    I was told by the AW to stand up at one point, the problem was that prior to that notification, I was standing up and moving around for a solid 20 minutes. :eek:

    I think its a useless feature, I'm quite active but trying to get up stand up for a minute or two is silly that really doesn't do much for any sort of conditioning, or weight loss.

    It's actually a pretty useful feature. And I myself need it because without these reminds and motivation to fill the rings I'd never get out of my chair.

    As I said, I'm quite active, and so for me its a useless feature. I run between 4 to 8 miles on any given day, I take cardio classes 5 days a week, and I take karate classes 4 days a week.

    I think I know what they're going for... Get the desk people to get up and walk. But I agree with you I'm really mobile at work I shouldn't be reminded to stand up. Eh I'll deal with it I just thought it was funny it came up while I was driving hahaha.

    I think you have to realize that the watch doesn't have a neural link to your brain. It stands to reason that if you are sitting for a while driving a car, the watch could think it is a good time for you to take a break and stand up. Obviously you can't always do that. More times that not, I find that when it tells me to stand up, I really could use a quick stretch break. I wouldn't do it if the watch didn't remind me. I'm sure over time their algorithms and data inputs will get better and better. The only one that is kind of annoying to me is when you are working out or something and it tells you to stand up. There needs to be something tweaked in there to have certain activities override other prompts.

    Standing reminders have nothing to do with weight loss or exercise. It's not healthy to sit for extended periods of time.

    Can't explain why it would ask you to stand after 20 mins of jumping jacks.

    It's the reason I bought the Watch! (I had no idea ther were a dozen other features I'd find essential.)

    For those of us who can fall into hyper focus mode and not move for hours, it's terrific.

    I like the reminders. It's kinda like a personal assistant telling you to stand up.
