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.

Missing one (or two) key element

Make it work with Magsafe, perhaps by adding a bamboo backrest with an indentation for a MagSafe puck, and you'll have a winner. Add a shelf on the other side with charge pad for AirPods and it would be perfect!

40 day review

When asked how I like the product I ordered from Cult of Mac 40 days ago...the answer is, I’m still waiting on the product to arrive! Never would have ordered it if I had any idea that it would take this long to arrive!

Perfect stand

The stand is perfect for the mag changer and adds a little style to the nightstand or desk.

Fantastic product

The simplicity of the stand and the way it works with my existing MagSafe. The look, the angle of the phone, just like apple products it just works.

Great product!

I really like the Elago MS1 stand for my iPhone 12. The angle is great and it fits the Apple MagSafe charger perfectly. The angle is not adjustable but the angle it sits at is perfect. It takes up some space on your desk/night table but again that doesn’t bother me for my space. The product is well made with no visible flaws. No shipping to Canada would be my only complaint.
Overall a great product.
Thank you!
