Apple Watch competitions (also known as Activity Competitions) are weekly competitions you can participate in with people you share your Apple Watch activity with. Each person gets a score, which grows until the end of the week, at which point a winner is declared. And that's about all there is to it!
Each Activity Competition lasts seven days. Each day, you can earn a maximum of 600 points, so that's a total of 4,200 possible points for the week (600 x 7 = 4,200). Points are awarded for progress on all three Activity rings, as follows: Move: 100 points for reaching your target.
You can invite friends to compete in a seven-day competition. During the competition, you'll both earn points by filling your Activity rings. You'll get a point for every percentage point you add to your rings each day, and you can earn up to 600 points a day. That's a max of 4,200 points for the week.
How Does Apple Watch Track Exercise Ring? The sensors on the Apple Watch periodically check your heart rate and movement. Once the sensors notice an increase, the watch begins keeping track of how long you've been doing that movement (or series of actions).
Trying to restart, update, and unpair/re-pair your devices was a good step to try. In addition, we'd advise having your participating family members try the same steps. That will include restarting their iPhone and Apple Watch, and ensuring their Apple Watch and iPhone are updated fully.
