Folks, how do I use the auto workout feature on my Apple Watch Series 1? I was under the impression that with the new WatchOS update, if I was walking outdoors, for instance, the workout app would automatically start a walking workout for me.

Is that not what it's used for? I don't seem to see any popups that say "it seems like you're doing a workout.."

Anyone else have any experience with this new feature?

Mine works every single day on my commute into work, I have a Series 3 though.
Hmm. I don’t think it’s specific to newer models. Perhaps it’s not logging that I’m walking briskly enough, although the level and amount of motion is filling the exercise ring when I’m walking.
