Recently (just today), my Series 2 began this weird cycle of automatically opening the Workout app and starting a Functional Training workout, without any input from me. The strangest thing is that once I tap the End button, it's like the workout never took place. And, as mentioned, this is a cycle that repeats over and over, constantly utilizing the heart rate sensor and bringing a significant hit to my battery life.

Does this sound like a weird, one-off thing? Have you had this happen with your watch?

Sounds lie the new auto workout feature is activating? Don't remember seeing other report it was active yet (not a developer). Is there a way to turn it off? Also do you select the App to auto start or does it decide?

The workout begins automatically, with no interaction from me.

You probably should include “beta” in the title so that if someone finds this thread in the future there won’t be confusion.

Glad that re-pair did the trick!
