Did your Apple Watch run out of juice during your workout, leaving you no record of all those burned calories? Don’t worry; you can still make up for it by manually adding your workout data to the Health app. Just take a look at your previous workout history to get an idea of what information to include.
For instance, if you ran for an hour and your watch died halfway through, you can check your past runs to see what metrics to add. This will give you a rough idea of how many calories you burned during the entire workout. This way, you can still keep track of your calories burned and other important stats.
How to manually log your workouts
To manually add an activityLaunch the Health app on your iPhone
Then, navigate to the “Browse” tab and select the “Activity” category
Tap on “Workouts” to bring up a graph of your logged workouts
In your logged workouts, you can also view previous history to give you an idea of what data to include in your new entry
Then tap on the “Add Data” button in the top-right corner of the screen
Tap it to bring up a data entry form where you can select the type of activity, the calories, the distance (where applicable), and the “Starts” and “Ends” time and date the activity took place
Hit “Add” to finalize, and the workout will be added to your record
You can use your past activity data as a reference to determine how much energy you burned in your chosen workout.
How to delete a workout and its data
If you need to delete an activity entry Navigate to the “Workouts” section, scroll down to “Show All Data” and tap edit in the upper right corner
Find the workout you want to delete and tap “Delete” which is the round red circle with the minus sign in the middle of it and then confirm “Delete” again when it pops up on the right and then confirm your selection by tapping “Delete Workout & Data”
Deleting data for a specific workout
If you choose to Delete Workout & Data for a specific workout, it will be removed from your record, and your daily activity total will be affected. This means that the energy burned and other metrics associated with that workout will no longer count toward your daily activity goals. So, before deleting any workout data, make sure you’re comfortable with the impact it may have on your overall activity progress.
However, if you only Delete Workout Only (see above), you will retain the calories lost and all other data associated with that workout.
What if I accidentally delete a workout or need to make adjustments?
If you accidentally delete a workout or need to make adjustments, you can always manually add it back in using the steps outlined earlier.
