Use the Activity app on your Apple Watch

With the Activity app on your Apple Watch, you can track how much you move, exercise, and stand from day to day.

     

 

Close your rings

If you wear your Apple Watch throughout the day, the Activity app can automatically track your daily movements. To get started, open the app on your Apple Watch and enter some information about yourself.

Your Apple Watch lets you know when you reach your goals, or you can open the app to see your progress. To get the details, swipe down. To share your activity with friends, swipe left. 

Move

The Move ring shows how many active calories you've burned so far. Complete your daily Move goal by burning active calories every day. Active calories, unlike resting, are ones that you burn by standing or moving around. Learn how to change your Move goal.

Exercise

The Exercise ring shows how many minutes of brisk activity you've completed so far. Complete your daily Exercise goal by exercising for at least 30 minutes each day. While you can’t change your Exercise goal, you can change your Move goal to a different number of active calories.

Stand

The Stand ring shows hours in which you've stood and moved for at least a minute. Complete your daily Stand goal by standing up and moving around for at least 1 minute during 12 different hours in the day. Even if you stand all day, you still need to move around.

If you specify that you use a wheelchair, the Stand ring switches to the Roll ring. Roll shows hours in which you’ve pushed around for at least 1 minute. 

While you can’t set your Stand or Roll goal, you can change your Move goal.
