  1. can somebody help me? today is my first day with an apple watch and i walked 4.5 miles. however, it says i haven’t burned any calories at all. my blue and green ring are filled but my red is still at 0%?

  2. I just treated myself to the Series 4, 44mm for my birthday.

    It's great, but:

    1. When you are gonna call, you cannot do anything else on the watch (unlike iPhone).

    2. No Camera and therefore No FaceTime.

    3. No Safari browser (Cannot surf the web)

    4. Not a lot of battery life

  3. This annoying iwatch, keep changing the watch face, then you can not find how to restore. I should have donated the money to charity. This will teach me to use my money more wisely.

  4. I think I am beginning to understand this app. It’s not measuring 3 different things (activity, exercise, and standing). It’s measuring 3 levels of the same thing, movement. The exercise ring is intense movement, the activity ring measures moderate movement, and the stand ring measures light movement. The naming and order of the rings makes it a little confusing for us slow learners. 🙂

  5. Is there a secret to getting the stand ring to consistently register stand time? Sometimes it tells me to stand when I just sat down. Even when I stand on cue for several minutes it doesn’t always give me credit for it. Is there a trick to it?

  6. Ik this video is for Apple Watch and I don’t have one, BUT REALLY WANT ONE. That isn’t what I am asking though, I was wondering what to do if IPhone 5S battery dies at 40%. Thank you!

  7. Can I change my move goal daily? Something like on my active rest days hit 700 calories and training days 1,000 calories… or Is it recommended that it be weekly?

  8. So much opportunity to take this to the next level. Just need to be prioritized.. You should incorporate more competition options, ability to communicate directly in the app vs having to send a text message, improve progress notification to create more visibility throughout the competition, a celebratory alert when there is a winner, notification that alerts you to how many days are left in the competition. Just to name a few ground level suggestions. This has great potential but I do not fell like I can totally leave my fitbit behind.
