Challenge yourself with move goals on the Apple Watch
Change movement target
To challenge myself or sometimes to slow it down, I regularly adjust my movement goal.
- I open the app * Activity
- on my Apple Watch.
- Then I press hard on the screen
- Now I tap Change movement target.
- I adjust the number of calories.
- To save the change, I click on Update.
Adjust the usefulness of my movement goal
Now that I have been in possession of Apple Watch for a while, I notice that the rings really motivate me to move. On days that I go to the gym, I set a higher goal than on days when I don't exercise. On these days, I still set a goal that I didn't achieve with sitting on my lazy ass. For example, I take the stairs more often and walk to the station instead of taking the bus.
Not just making the rings full provides motivation for me. Because I move, I also earn medals. For example, I get medals when I break personal records or when I fill a ring several times. These medals can be found in the digital prize cabinet in the Activity app on my iPhone. Of course I want a prize cabinet that is full of medals. To achieve this, I exercise and exercise more and more.
Every Monday morning I receive a weekly overview of my past week's activity. Based on my activity in the past week, Apple Watch proposes a new movement target. I set this immediately. Did I exercise a lot in the previous week? Then Apple Watch proposes a higher movement target. This challenges me to always go the extra mile.
