    Hi everyone,

    Ever since updating to WatchOS 4 and iOS 11, I've noticed random work outs have stopped syncing to my phone. Earlier today I did a 2 mile run and while the Workout circle filled up and recorded the workout, the actual workout was not recorded/synced to my iPhone and I am only able to see a 1 mile walk I did this morning. This happened again last Friday too.. It's a strange issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    No idea what’s going on but I had the same thing happen to me this morning. Went on a run using the work out app, saved it, hit done on the run details page that popped up, and then the run never showed up on my phone when I checked later.

    I ran on Wednesday and it was a little delayed but it showed up. I just finished running 2.5 miles right now and again, it failed to sync to my iPhone. Are your exercise rings still filling? This is really frustrating.

    I will note that the average heart rate didn’t generate like normal when I was on the workout details page. I’m wondering if you hit done before that finished calculating it fails to sync to the phone... idk just speculating

    My exercise rings are still filling, even while the exercises themselves disappear

    Exercise ring did not fill, the workout was totally missing.
    I may have hit the done ring too soon, don’t know.
    Has not happened again - yet.

    Try restarting phone and watch. I have had that issue before.

    I've been having some issues with exercises not registering on the activities rings. If I restart my watch and phone, it seems to temporarily resolve it. But then the issue randomly occurs again after a period of time. No idea what's triggering it, but I've only been noticing it since the watch 4.1 update.

    Exactly why I only use the built-in Workout app for swims. I was having the same issue with runs not syncing occasionally. I have been using the Strava app for some time now and never have that issue.
