If you’ve recently purchased an Apple Watch, you’re probably eager to start tracking your activity. The Apple Watch is a great device for monitoring your progress, and one of the most important things you can do is set a Move goal. A Move goal is a step-based goal that tells you how many steps to take each day. It’s important to set a realistic goal that is attainable and will help motivate you to reach it.

Fortunately, it’s easy to reset your Move goal on the Apple Watch. Here’s how:

First, open the Activity app on your Apple Watch by pressing the Digital Crown.

Once inside the Activity app, use the Digital Crown to scroll down to “Change Move Goal”.

Tap “Change Move Goal” and use the + or – buttons to adjust your daily step goal.

Once you have set your desired daily step goal, tap “Done” in the upper-right corner of your screen to save your changes.

It’s also important to reset your Fitness Calibration Data periodically so that your Apple Watch can accurately track activity data. To do this, open up the Watch app on your iPhone and then tap “My Watch Tab” > “Privacy” > “Reset Fitness Calibration Data”. This will erase any old data that may be skewing results and ensure that all future activity data is accurate and reliable.

Using an Apple Watch as part of an overall fitness regimen is a great way to stay motivated and active every day! With these simple steps, it’s easy to reset your Move Goal on the Apple Watch so that you can keep up with all of your fitness goals!

Resetting Move Goals on an iPhone

To reset your Move goal on your iPhone, start by opening the Fitness app. You’ll need to have at least iOS 16 installed if you don’t have an Apple Watch. Once the app is open, tap on your profile picture in the upper-right corner. This will bring up a list of options. Tap on “Change Goals” and you will be prompted to change your Move goal first. You can adjust your Move goal by selecting from a range of calorie burn goals or active minutes goals. Once you’ve settled on a new goal, tap “Save” to confirm the changes. Repeat the same steps for the Exercise and Stand goals if needed.

Resetting Activity on an Apple Watch

To reset your Activity on your Apple Watch, start by opening the Watch app on your iPhone. Tap the My Watch tab, then scroll down to select Activity. On the next page, tap Reset Activity and confirm when prompted to reset all your Activity data from the last seven days. You can also reset your monthly progress and any awards that you’ve earned.

Default Apple Watch Move Goal

The default Apple Watch Move goal is 30 minutes. This is the recommended goal as it helps you to stay active throughout the day and achieve your daily fitness goals. To reach the 30-minute goal, you need to accumulate at least 30 minutes of activity that raises your heart rate. This could be a combination of brisk walks, short runs, or any other type of exercise that raises your heart rate. The Apple Watch also allows you to customize your Move goal to better fit your fitness needs and goals.

Unable to Adjust Activity Goals on Apple Watch

It is possible that you are not running the latest version of watchOS on your Apple Watch. To ensure that you are able to change your activity goals, you should update to the most recent version of watchOS. This can be done by opening the Watch app on your compatible iPhone, selecting General, then tapping Software Update. Once you have installed the latest version of watchOS, you should be able to change your activity goals in the Activity app on your Apple Watch.

Does the Apple Watch Automatically Adjust the Move Goal?

Yes, the Apple Watch will automatically adjust your daily calorie goal, or move ring, based on your activity level. It uses a built-in algorithm to determine how active you have been and will adjust your goal accordingly. You can also manually set a calorie goal for an upcoming workout session in the Workout app on your Apple Watch.


The Apple Watch is an incredibly powerful device capable of supporting and motivating you during your fitness journey. With customizable Move, Exercise, and Stand goals, you can easily track your progress and make sure you’re meeting your personal goals. Additionally, with the ability to reset your calibration data, you can ensure that all of the information is accurate and reliable.
