How to Change Activity Goals on Apple Watch

Check if you can manually change or update your move, exercise and stand goals on watchOS.

Apple Watch isn’t yet another normal wearable device. It has features that one cannot imagine when it comes to monitoring one’s own health. It comes with a built-in Activity app. It will help you track your daily exercises and movements effortlessly. The Activity app has three rings that measure your Move (red ring), Exercise (green ring), and Stand (blue ring). With the move ring, you will be able to calculate the calories that you burned. The Exercise ring will show you the brisk activity that you have finished so far. Finally, the Stand ring shows the duration you have stood and moved. With Apple Watch, you can better calculate your steps covered, calories burnt, etc. Fortunately, or unfortunately, Apple Watch doesn’t let you change some of the goals for better health results. You will get a clear picture of it and a detailed guide on how to change activity goals on the Apple Watch. At the end of this article, you will also know which Activity goals cannot be changed on Apple Watch.

Note: If you don’t find, then swipe or scroll to the bottom to choose Add Workout.

(3). Select Other to choose to replace your exercise with something else. For instance, Martial arts, Mixed Cardio, Mind & Body, etc.

Change Stand Goals on Apple Watch

Unfortunately, Apple Watch doesn’t let you change your Stand or Roll goal just like the Exercise goal. In other words, it is fixed or permanent. Thus you have to stand and move for at least a minute during 12 different hours of the day to close this ring.

Our Opinion

Just like monitoring the health activity, you can change the Move on the Apple watch. It is evident that stand and exercise goals cannot be changed. For now, only the exercise goals can be adjusted while the Stand goal cannot be changed.
