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.

Awesome

This product is awesome and works great with iPhone 12. Very secure mount to air vent while maintaining flexible turning to accompany a horizontal or vertical view of your phone. Highly recommended!

This thing is too cool...

I get a kick out of looking at this thing. I used to work for Apple, and when I joined, the SE was the smallest Mac there was. There were still a ton of these "old" Macs in the office though, so I had the pleasure of working with them once in a while. Pleasant memories...

High-quality watch band! In BlackHawks RED!

I really like this band. It's very thick, almost falls into the "heavy duty" camp! The color is vibrant, and the band is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It also doesn't get caught on every little thing like some of the other bands I have. Love this band, and will gladly buy from these folks again, when I need/want another.

Works as expected.

Like the magnet, too.

Love it!

easy to find. Easy to handle. No more loosing the little remote.
