Why you might want to change your stand goal
On your Apple Watch, the stand goal is the number of hours in a day that you should stand up and move around. The default goal is 12 hours, but you can change it to something else in the Stand settings on your iPhone.
You might want to change your stand goal for a few different reasons:
-If you’re not reaching your current goal, you might want to make it easier by setting a lower goal.
-Or, if you’re consistently surpassing your current goal, you might want to make it harder by setting a higher goal.
-Maybe you just want to switch things up and see how a different stand goal feels.
Whatever your reason, it only takes a few taps on your iPhone to make the switch. Here’s how:
How to change your stand goal
If you’ve decided that you want to be more or less active throughout the day, you can change your stand goal. Your stand goal is the number of hours during the day that you want to stand and be active for at least one minute.
Here’s how to change your stand goal:
1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Tap “Activity.”
3. Tap “Stand.”
4. Tap “Change Stand Goal.”
5. Enter the number of hours that you want to stand each day.
6. Tap “Save.”
How to check if you met your stand goal
If you’re wondering how you can check whether or not you met your stand goal for the day, there are a few different ways to do so.
The first way is to simply swipe up from your watch face to access your Glances, and then scroll down until you see the “Stand” glance. This will tell you at a glance how many hours you stood during the day, as well as whether or not you met your goal.
Another way to check is to open the Activity app on your iPhone (if it’s not already installed, you can do so by opening the App Store and searching for “Activity”). Once the app is open, tap on the “My Watch” tab at the bottom of the screen, and then scroll down until you see “Stand.” Here, you’ll be able to see not only how many hours you stood during the day, but also how many times you stood up and for how long each time.
The benefits of standing more
There are many benefits to standing more, including improved blood circulation, reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, strengthened bones, and reduced risk of cancer. Additionally, standing burns more calories than sitting, even when you’re not moving.
Changing your stand goal is easy and only takes a few seconds. Here’s how:
1. Open the Activity app on your Apple Watch.
2. Tap the My Watch tab.
3. Scroll down and tap Stand > Stand Ring.
4. Tap – or + to adjust your goal.
The drawbacks of standing more
There are a few drawbacks to standing more. First, if you have any joint issues, standing for long periods of time may not be the best option for you. Second, if you work at a job that requires you to sit for long periods of time, standing more may not be realistic. Third, standing more can actually be tiring and make you feel less energetic instead of more. Finally, if you have any underlying health conditions, please consult with your doctor before changing your stand goal.
