Upgraded from 4 to 5

Unpaired and repaired. No. It longer adds to my activities. Stand and move haven’t increased. Steps stopped incrementing. Even after a recalibration

I only use the watch for exercise so this is a very poor experience

I even manually added 1000 steps in health app. Just doesn’t show up in activities or watch

Went back to Apple Watch 4. Same issue. The watch is literally just a watch now. It’s not an exercise tracker and I will now lose all my streaks

I reckon Apple will tell me to reset my phone and watch to factory

Yep, its just happend to me on a series 3 (seperate thread) but after watch has reset itself on its own, the activity app is now dead, will no update and has changed back to KM from miles on its own too.
