Set up on Apple Watch
After we are convinced of the correctness of the settings, we proceed directly to the calibration of the clock:
1… We put on Apple Watch and go out into the street, choosing an area for walking or running where there are no failures in receiving a GPS signal;
2… If you have an Apple Watch Series 1, bring the paired iPhone with you. The smartphone can be held in hand or fixed in a body case. If you have an Apple Watch Series 2 or a newer version of the watch, then you do not need to take a smartphone;
3… Next, go to the application on the device “Workout“And choose”Walking” or “Run“;
4… Set the target or leave the parameter “Target not set“, Then click”To begin“;
five… We walk or jog at the usual pace for at least 20 minutes.
If you are not satisfied with such a training duration, it can be divided into several parts. After all performed actions, the program will start automatic calibration. It can be repeated to improve the accuracy of data logging.
Calibration data can be cleared. To do this, go to the application Watch on iPhone, go to the page “My watch“, Then to the item”Confidentiality“, Activate the switch”Fitness Tracking“, Where the button”Reset Fitness Calibration“, Which should be pressed to reset the information.
Also, to correctly calculate the calories burned and other parameters, it is advisable to update the data on your weight and age. This is done in the Watch application on the iPhone, in the “My watch“, in point “Health“. There you can set up a medical card or make changes to an existing one.
