How to Change the Move Goal on an Apple Watch
The move goal on the Apple Watch calculates the active calories burned throughout the day. The exercise goal counts the minutes that you've exercised (with a goal of 30 minutes per day). In short, it's active calories burned vs. time spent exercising.
Most people we know, including ourselves, aim for something around 600-700 as a Move target. It's a number most find is achievable, but also requires you to be active at some point in the day.
By default, your Apple Watch will set a default Move goal based on measurements like height and weight as well as your age and specified gender. You should adjust your Move goal to reflect your fitness goals and current lifestyle. Stand and Exercise each have default goals of 12 hours and 30 minutes respectively.
Yes, you can cheat the Move ring. You can also choose a workout from the Workout app (such as Other) and just let it run while you sit at your desk. Both of these will artificially rack up calories. If you're cheating on this ring, you probably don't need a lecture on why you shouldn't be doing this.
