Pro tip: Change your Apple Watch Move goal to stay fit during lockdown

Pro-tip-4You might need to exercise a little more if you hope to stay fit while stuck at home for most of the day during a global pandemic. Give yourself a little push by increasing your Move goal on Apple Watch.

It’s easy to do, and if you’re one of the many Apple Watch owners who likes to complete their Move goal every day, it will help you burn a few additional calories to make up for spending most of the day on the couch.

Apple Watch can be an excellent motivator. If you try to focus on filling its Activity circles every day, it can really push you to get moving and live an active lifestyle. It’s no personal trainer screaming at you in the gym, but it works.

So, if you find your existing Move goal a little too easy to achieve, or you’re just ready to start moving more, here’s how to change it.

How to change your Move goal on Apple Watch

  1. Open the Activity app on Apple Watch.
  2. Press firmly on your Activity circles.
  3. Select Change Move Goal.
  4. Use the on-screen plus and minus buttons or turn the Digital Crown to specify a new Move goal.
  5. Tap Update.

Perfect gift for mom

Mom loves it. That’s all that matters!

Excellent quality, nicely made

As I said, excellent quality, very happy with the finish albeit just fits my wrist on the last hole. Obviously made for Asian wrists not big boofy Aussies!!!

Great band

As advertised

Old school

Gives the Apple Watch an “Old School” look, like I remember from some of my old watches. Good quality, easy to swap out.

Great band

I bought two of these, one for me and the other for my wife. It’s very high quality and comfortable. I’ve already gotten several compliments on it and told folks where they could get one. Terrific band at a terrific price!
