Apple Watch has evolved from distance tracking to currently side length tracking. It has come a long way in giving its users updated features with every new software update. When it comes to Apple Watch features, it learns your favorite route and then you can race against yourself, isn’t that interesting? It can even detect backstroke and kickboard underwater and even has the ability to dry itself after getting out of the water. It also monitors your heart rate, temperature, ovulation cycle and other factors. You can even set a goal for yourself to achieve, but what if you want to turn your Apple Watch goals into something more difficult and exciting? Read on to learn how to adjust your Apple Watch goals to something more fun and interesting.

How do you change goals on Apple Watch?

Apple Watch offers its users the option to change their daily goals such as stand goals, exercise goals or burn calories. This allows you to change the number of hours of your stance/roll goal or the number of calories to burn and the number of minutes it takes you to exercise. You do all this using the activities app on your Apple Watch. Here’s how to change your goal on Apple Watch.

The method below only works if you have Apple Watch Series 3 or later with the latest version of watchOS.

  1. Open the Apple Watch Activities app.
  2. Scroll down and find the option called change goals.
  3. Select the Change Goals option.
  4. Personalize your daily exercise goal by changing your daily active calorie burn goal. You can do this by tapping the plus or minus icon and selecting the calories you want to burn.
  5. Press the next button.
  6. Change your daily physical activity minutes by touching the plus and minus buttons and selecting the minutes you want to exercise.
