    When I mow my grass I get a good walking exercise, but I don't want to wear my watch. I do carry my phone in my pocket for music. Is there a way for the activity app to know I did a walking workout using just the phone to track it?

    I don't think it works like that. You have to start a workout on your watch to get it in the activity app.
