How accurate is Apple Watch Exercise ring?
As mentioned, if you walk too slowly, the Apple Watch won’t track it as exercise, even if you walk for hours, but it will log your calorie expenditure and your steps. Again, these might not be 100% accurate, but it’s a decent enough guide if you’re trying to change your habits for the better.
Why is my Exercise ring not moving on Apple Watch?
Make sure that your watch fits just right. Make sure that you wear your watch on the top of your wrist. Make sure that your watch and your arm is clean and dry. Make sure that Power Saving Mode is off during your exercise.
Why is my Exercise ring not closing?
It all comes down to Apple’s definition of Exercise. In the Health app, it says: “Every full minute of movement equal to or exceeding the intensity of a brisk walk counts towards your daily Exercise Minutes.” So, if you are walking at a pace that Apple doesn’t consider a “brisk walk”, you’re out of luck.
