Fix Apple Watch Exercise Activity

One of the greatest uses for Apple Watch is keeping track of your activity goals. You can track your Move, Stand, and Exercise times for the current day and over time. But nothing is perfect and if you’re running into problems with your activities recording inaccurately, how do you fix it?

For instance, maybe you start an exercise that lasts 45 minutes, but your Apple Watch records it as 10 minutes instead. Here’s two ways to fix your Apple Watch not registering Exercise activities correctly.

1) Open the Watch app on your iPhone.

2) Select My Watch at the bottom and then pick Privacy.

3) Tap Reset Fitness Calibration Data and then confirm the action.
