Change onscreen metrics
During your workout, you can track your progress onscreen for each of your rings, all shown in real time on your device. If you wear your Apple Watch during the workout, you can also track your heart rate and calories burned.
Some workouts also display the Burn Bar, which shows how your metrics compare to others who have done the workout before. The more calories you burn, the higher you land on the Burn Bar. Your position on the Burn Bar is saved in your workout summary along with your other metrics.
You can change the metrics from Apple Watch that you see on the screen during a workout. Metrics settings sync in the Fitness app on all your devices where you’re signed in with your Apple ID.
Note: Fitness+ subscribers who use AirPlay to see their workouts can now get real-time personal metrics from their Apple Watch on compatible displays.
