    Move Goal: 500

    It originally put me at 690. That was a bit too high so I brought it down to 500 for now. I can hit 690 on active days...but, I have a full time job, a wife with her own small business and 3 kids. I wanted something that I could reach even on my busiest of days and 500 seems to be a good mark for that right now.

    My current goal is to fill all 3 rings completely every single day in May.

    How about you guys?

    Same move goal and my goal is to fill the rings as well. I can beat the 500 on 4 out of the 7 days but feel disappointed if I don't fill those darn rings in so I backed it down to 500 from the recommended 690. I just try not to eat an extra 200-300 Calories :)

    This is the number it gave me. Kept it there for now, I'll see how I do. I have a sedentary job so I'll start with the default and take it from there.

    Damn man... 6'3" and 170? You're a stick. Thats crazy light for that height. I'm 27; 6'4'' and 240 and i put my activity at light and my goal is 270... I think the goal has more to do with activity level than anything else.

    I’ve never been one to close my rings consistently, but I recently received a sit-stand unit for my monitors at work; I’m a project mgr and I’m on the computer all day. Working toward standing and walking more. Additionally, I was at 215lbs on December 30th, my biggest ever, so I signed up to use the WeightWatchers app and I use more of the Apple Watch faces that show your activity. I’m down almost 30 lbs and summer is right around the corner — with better weather ahead, I’ll up my move goal soon.

    Goal 590

    I just looked at the health app and i average 606 this year. I have an office job and definitely have to plan exercise to meet that goal. (An hour workout plus sone short walks or a bunch of short medium walks and a little workout) Naturally the number is around 350 for just work and normal walking. I was averaging 515 Cals when I first got the watch, about 90 less per day than currently. The AW has definitely helped me keep active and find little ways to keep moving.

    Weight: 78kg
    Goal is 1600kJ

    Sometimes I can pull it off easily. Sometimes I need some extra efforts. To double the goal, I need to walk two hours, which is quite some contribution for me. But I think I am fine.
    I used to not like moving around. After this Apple Watch, I now push me to move around or even do simple exercise every day.
