Metrics

You can display your workout time, heart rate and calories burned in the top left as you work out. Your Activity Rings progress also appears in the top right. 

Time

You can choose whether to show how much time has elapsed in your workout or how much time is remaining, or turn off time.

Burn Bar

The Burn Bar is a way for you to compare your effort to others who've done the same workout. It adjusts to account for weight to allow for an equal comparison and is shown as your calories burned. If you leave it on, your workout data is anonymously added to the Burn Bar competition. The Burn Bar is available for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Treadmill, Cycling and Rowing workouts.

Here's how the Burn Bar calculates and displays your metrics:

  • The Burn Bar takes your heart rate into consideration when determining your results. If your heart rate doesn't display, results on the Burn Bar might be impacted. Learn how to get the most accurate measurements using your Apple Watch.
  • Based on your calories burned, the Burn Bar will show whether you're Behind the Pack, In the Pack, Middle of the Pack, Front of the Pack or Ahead of the Pack. The harder you work, the more opportunity you have to move up in the pack.
  • The Burn Bar appears 2 minutes into your workout. It displays based on a rolling window and is reflective of your last 2 minutes of work.
  • When your workout is complete, your final position on the Burn Bar is an average of your effort across the whole workout. You can view your Burn Bar result in your workout summary.
