Just a few hours ago, Apple released the Golden Master version of watchOS 7, in addition to the rest of the operating systems, in preparation for the final launch that will take place today. This GM brings few news, but there is one for the most interesting Activity app: we can now edit daily exercise and standing goals.

Customizable objectives

Since the launch of the first Apple Watch daily exercise goal was 30 minutes and standing hours goal was 12. This will change in watchOS 7, where we can customize these lenses just as we could change the motion lens. The steps are the following:

  1. We open the app Exercise on our Apple Watch.
  2. At the bottom we touch on Change goals.
  3. We adjust the movement target.
  4. We press Following.
  5. We adjust the exercise goal.
  6. We press Following.
  7. We set the target “standing”.
  8. We press okay.

That easy. Let’s keep in mind that there are certain limits. In the case of the movement objective, the daily minimum is at 10 minutes and the maximum at 60. In the case of “standing” the maximum remains 12 hours and the minimum drops to 6.

With this configuration, the exercise and standing goals can be adjusted for people of all ages and according to their needs. A very useful feature to keep encouraging us to stay active without forcing ourselves excessively.
