Interesting. Amusingly I found this thread earlier today googling apple activity streaks.
Having got my watch just after Christmas I’m on a 60 day streak and keen to keep it up. It’s set to 1,000 calories which is challenging but doable - it means I have to do some form of exercise, whether it’s a run, swim, or long walk, to make it to the 1,000 calories each day. Standing and exercise minutes are generally doable without much fuss.
However I’m going overseas in about 6 weeks, which will involve a very long day as I cross over the date line, and then a missed day as I cross back. How does the Apple Watch/Activity deal with timezones?
The long day should be no problem, but for the day I miss on the plane back I’m thinking I might drastically reduce the daily goal for the surrounding days, and then play with the timezones. If I work it out properly I should be able to get 12 hours of standing…
Am I right in thinking that it’s the watch’s timezone you need to change, or is it the phone and the watch?
Does anyone have any experience of crossing timezones with the watch? Whilst it is sort of cheating it’s been a great motivator to get out and exercise even in the rain so I don’t want to lose my streak if there’s a way around it.
