Has anyone else noticed their exercise ring being easier to fill and get credit for it throughout the day since updating? Do you think I should recalibrate the watch or do you think there might be a glitch with the software update?

Yup! I was just about to make this post right now.

My previous watch (series 0) would fill up only when doing exercise. This one fills up when I'm browsing macrumours :p.

Resetting the calibration data is probably a good start.

The exercise ring should fill on any movement when you have elevated HR.

The exercise ring should fit after elevated HR or moderated arms movement for a long period (walking or so)

What I do noticed is that activity ring is easier to be fit than before. It record calories even if I am sit down on the sofa... I have to reinstall both devices since zero and then continue testing it...

Same here. By the time, I get home from work the activity ring is filled without hitting the gym.
