Can I keep the MotiFIT app open during an Apple Watch workout?

Monica MacDonald -

The Apple Watch automatically turns off its screen to conserve battery power when it can.  Therefore, it's not possible to keep the screen on for the full duration of your workout.  

The screen will turn on whenever it detects that you raise your wrist or when you tap the screen or one of the buttons.

When the screen turns on if you have an active workout session it will automatically display the MotiFIT app.

 

TIP:  Double tapping the digital crown will return to MotiFIT if you happen to exit out of it accidentally.

 

Delaying the automatic turn off of the screen from 15 seconds to 70 seconds.

On your Apple Watch

1. Tap on the "Settings" icon.

2. On the "Settings" screen tap "General".

3. Tap "Wake Screen" on the "General" screen.

4. Tap on "70 Seconds" under "On Tap".

 

On your iPhone

1. Open the Apple Watch management app.

2. Tap on "General"” under the "My Watch" tab.

3. Tap "Wake Screen".

4. Tap on "70 Seconds" under "On Tap".

 

If desired you also can force your Apple Watch to display the previously used app instead of the watch face.

 

Forcing Apple Watch to display your previous activity instead of the watch face:

 

On your Apple Watch

1. Tap on the "Settings" icon.

2. On the "Settings" screen, tap "General".

3. Tap "Wake Screen" on the "General" screen.

4. Tap on "Previous Activity" under "Resume to".

 

On your iPhone

3. Tap "Wake Screen".

4. Ensure that the "Wake Screen on Wrist Raise" option is turned on.

5. Tap "Resume Last Activity" under "On Wrist Raise"

 

NOTE: Changing the setting on your phone will change it on your Apple Watch and vice versa.
