    I am averaging 147 minutes of the required 139 minutes of exercise per day for the month so no badge yet, but I did get my 2018 Challenge already and its not even the new year yet.

    These challenges remain screwed up big time. (I haven't had seven consecutive close rings days in a long time, because my move goal is so high, so I haven't received that badge yet.)

    I need to complete 58 workouts to get December’s achievement, but it’s been stuck at 55 workouts when I’ve actually done 65+

    Any ideas why?
    It happened with November’s challenge too.

    Hey guys, I have a problem with this achievement. Beginning of December I got the challenge to make 235,3 km in this month, I already have 217,4 km. I was running, walking, everything, but the 217,4 km is still the same. Do you have any idea what should I do? :-)
    Thank you

    So I just got a perfect month and have exceeded the 20,105 calories burned for my December challenge but have yet to receive my badge.UPDATE: my calories burned have changed and now I’m under the goal, not happy.

    So as of 2 pm today I had met my goal for the challenge but all of a sudden my average daily exercise minutes decreased by 6 minutes . Now I won't get the achievement. I'm very annoyed

    My challenge was to average 1429/day active calories for December. 1pm today I was at 1427/day average. I spent the rest of the day doing normal stuff, earning 300+ calories. I just checked and my average is now 1299. I did the math and my average should be 1432. What gives? How can my average go down after more exercise?

    My average active calories went from 1427 to 1299. Only had to make it to 1429. Been on chat with apple for over an hour now, they have no idea as of yet.

    There is no doubt in my mind that these special achievements are just screwed up. It's nothing personal; Apple just didn't do these right, and isn't spending a lot of time trying to fix it.

    My October challenge was to get something like 28,000 calories. I didn't do that, but now I have the achievement and it says that I earned the badge on October 2, two days into the month. Just messed up.

    Good thing is I already earned the January New Years challenge of closing all 3 rings for a week. Pretty cool as it is still December and I have already earned it.

    Its frustrating because I actually put work into earning this badge. I typically workout for daily for 60 minutes. I added in additional classes just to meet this challenge and now due to some glitch i didn't. I recognize that these virtual challenges are a bit trivial but if they are going to offer them they should ensure they work.

    I just got a notification (0300hrs) that I completed my December Challenge. This is the second notification for the same challenge. The first was on 15 DEC for complete the challenge of doing 602 Exercise Minutes. This second notification was basically the same thing but for my total Exercise Minutes for the month. Only one December Challenge is shown in my achievements though.

    Geeze, I'm sorry to hear about the glitches costing you guys your achievements. That really sucks. I don't see these as trivial at all. Apple offers them as encouragement towards a more healthy lifestyle, and since we accept and meet the challenges, Apple should get this right.

    Because I didn't completely trust the process, I set up a simple spreadsheet last week to track my exercise minutes. Apple always had the average correct. It is possible to add exercise minutes and reduce your average. Simply add fewer minutes than the current average and that average will decline.

    Sure, but in the @kendewey case, if the average after 30 days was 1429, even if you burned 0 calories on day 31, the worst the average would be is 1382. It isn't possible for it to have dropped to 1299.

    Right! If you're cutting it close it could be easy to inadvertently drop your daily average. For my first Monthly Challenge (October) I was nine days in before I realized that there was a Challenge. I had to play catchup big time and I think I finished the month with my daily average one minute above what I needed to meet the Challenge. Combined with the fact the Challenge period was shorter than the calendar month, I was very lucky to get it.

    I'd be really disappointed to crush a Challenge and have Apple muff the totals, disqualifying me. That would be like catching my personal training having a Hot Pocket, Twinkie, and cigarette between clients. If I had a personal trainer...

    Where do you check for challenges?
    phone > Activity > Achievements (third icon from the left, bottom of display)

    When the Challenge first appears, you'll get a badge on the icon. After that you tap the unfulfilled Challenge Achievement icon near the top of the page. You should see daily updates on your progress at the bottom of the phone's display.
