100, 365, 500, 1,000 Move Goals You get another for hitting it 365 times, 500 times, and 1,000 times. These do not need to be in a row; it's just the total number of times you've ever hit the goal. Close the Move ring often to unlock a series of badges. Set the Move goal low if you want to make it easier.
Just go to the Activity app on your Apple Watch and force-tap on the rings. Tap on the Change Move Goal button and scroll the Digital Crown to adjust up or down. Then, just tap Update and you're done.
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.
To change the Move, Exercise, and Stand goals on the Apple Watch. Open the Activity app on your Apple Watch. Swipe up to the Change Goals option and tap on it. The Apple Watch will cycle through the three goals, starting with the Move (calories) goal.
Here's how: Tap on the Activity app on your Apple Watch. Use the Digital Crown or your finger on the screen to scroll down and tap on Change Goals. Tap the up or down arrows until you reach the calorie goal you wish to achieve daily.
You should set your move goal to the number of calories you would like to burn in addition to your resting energy. This will be dependent on your activity level, age, weight, job, and exercise habits. Your goal should be one that challenges you, but also feels maintainable.
The Move ring shows how many active calories you've burned so far. Complete your daily Move goal by burning active calories every day. Active calories, unlike resting, are ones that you burn by standing or moving around.
The other way that your Apple Watch tracks your movement is with, well, movement. As your arm swings, your Watch acknowledges that movement and logs it toward your move goal. If you are invested in your health, gradually increasing your move goal on an Apple Watch is one of the many ways technology can help.
Set a Goal While that seems like a low number, the Apple Watch counts the number of calories you're burning from movement, not overall. That sets the goal apart from other fitness trackers. Those 350 calories equate to around 10,000 steps a day for an average-sized person.
