    Quick question and I apologize if it's been mentioned elsewhere...

    how is everyone measuring their workout (specifically weight training) with their apple watch. I would assume "other" inside the workout app? Is that correct or is there a more efficient way to track this type of workout?

    "Other" for me. I think it underrates the calories burned though.

    "Other" for weight lifting. You can even see it in one of Apple's Guided Tours how the guy selects other for weight training/no cardio.

    When tracking during weight training, are you letting the session run throughout your entire weight lift work out? This includes the time between sets and time spent waiting for a machine etc.

    "Other" and letting it run the entire workout.

    Yes (although my time between sets is rarely over 3 minutes).
