One of the changes to the WatchOS 7 under the radar is support for changing the rings of your Apple Watch activity. Apple has long allowed you to customize your Red Move goal, only this year it has added support for changing the green practice ring and blue stand ring. Here’s how it works and how to set it up on your new Apple Watch.
You can change the way your Apple Watch works
The functionality of your Apple Watch can have many reasons to adjust the rings. Maybe you are recovering from an injury and the 12 stand hours combined with 30 minutes of exercise are too much for your body to manage. People are calling for Apple to integrate the Apple Watch into the real-world ring system, and this new WatchOS 7 feature at least gives users more control over their goals.
Here’s how to change your Apple Watch’s behavior, practices, and goals, including WatchOS 7:
- On your Apple Watch, open the Activity app
- Scroll down and look for the “Change Goals” button
- Use the + or – buttons or digital crowns to adjust your goals
- Tap “OK” to confirm your changes.
The practice ring can be shortened to five intervals and extended to a minimum of 10 minutes or a maximum of 60 minutes. The stand target can vary up to a minimum of 6 hours at one-hour intervals. You cannot raise the stand target beyond the default 12-hour mark.
