One of the changes in watchOS 7 that went under the radar is support for changing the Apple Watch activity rings. While Apple has long allowed you to customize your red pull target, only this year was support added to change the green training ring and the blue stand ring. This is how it works.
How to change Apple Watch activity rings
There are several reasons why you might want to adjust your Apple Watch activity rings. Maybe you are recovering from an injury, and 12 standing hours along with 30 minutes of exercise is too much for your body to handle. People have also asked Apple to integrate rest days into the Apple Watch ring system, and this new watchOS 7 feature at least gives users more control over their goals.
To change the goals of Apple Watch movement, training, and standing with watchOS 7:
- Open the Activity app on your Apple Watch
- Scroll down to the bottom and look for the “Change Destination”
- Use the + or – buttons to adjust your measurements, or use Digital Crown
- Press “OK” to confirm the changes.
The training ring can be lowered or raised at intervals of five, down to a minimum of 10 minutes or a maximum of 60 minutes. The stand size can be changed in intervals of one hour, down to a minimum of 6 hours. You cannot increase the standing goal beyond the standard 12-hour mark.
