    Seems the Activity App Exercise ring isn't quite seeing things correctly...I thought my usual walk would trigger something on it... A mile and a half in about 40 minutes would register something on that exercise ring.... Well, two days in a row...nothing... Turns out...reading the Apple Support Discussion boards - I'm not alone... And if you use the Workout app with the 'pre defined' activities, things done under 'Workout' we're not correctly registering as exercise in the Activity app...unless you started a Workout as "Other"...

    Bottom Line... Start a Workout as Other to get exercise credit in the Activity App until Apple fixes the bug...

    Happy workouts y'all...

    Thanks for sharing. I'm going to keep using Other because it appears to work pretty well.

    Thanks for the advice. I took an 8km walk on Friday evening and it only registered 10 mins exercise. (Took way longer than 10 mins! And the pace was quite fast.) I used the 'Outdoor Walk' setting. Next time I'll use 'Other'.

    Outdoor walk working ok over here! A little less than a mile but it gave me expected duration and pace.

    If I restored my iPhone would that erase all my goals I've earned for the activity app & will I have to get the trophies again?

    My Activity exercise ring stopped working in early June after working fine for a month. Up until then, I had not used the Workout app. Did an Outdoor walk and got no exercise credit. Did the usual power-offs, re-pair, nothing worked. Then I saw tip about using "other" and that worked. Have been going back and forth with AppleCare for two weeks where they kept having me try different things and then send them a screen shot. Finally today I was told engineers recognize there is a software problem, they are working on it and there will be an update coming (my rep didn't know when). He said he would notify me when it is released. Crossing fingers it is soon as Exercise features was one of the reasons I bought the  Watch

    Thanks much. I was frustrated with this bug and actually found this site while searching for a solution. I just tried 'other' on my treadmill and it now works fine. ◄Dave►

    Interesting... I use Other most of the time since I am in the gym, but I have done a few outdoor runs and walks and have gotten credit for them. I wonder how it is determining the activity level? I am in good heart health so my resting HR is pretty low, I wonder if it sees a significant increase in my HR which is why it is saying I am active???
