Running. Choose Indoor Run for running on a treadmill or any time that you're running indoors. To improve the accuracy of pace and distance for Indoor Run, first accumulate at least 20 minutes of outdoor running using the Workout app to calibrate your watch.
1 Answer. Show activity on this post. If it's a mixture of run and walk; go with indoor run. The sensors pick up your jogging stride differently when it knows your running so it will be more accurate when it expects your arms to be in a run position.
As some users have noticed, there can sometimes be a bit of a disparity between measured pace depending on your workout. For instance, your Watch might record a much slower pace on a treadmill indoors compared to when you run outside, even if your pace and distance are very similar (or vice versa).
Howdy schumanjs, Yes, the Apple Watch will track your indoor walk on a treadmill. You can help the accuracy of the Apple Watch by calibrating it, and also using the Indoor Walk workout in the Workout app.
For indoor runs, walks, and cycling sessions, the Apple Watch uses heart rate as the main data for calculating calorie burn. Outdoor workouts also employ the iPhone's GPS to add speed and distance to the calculation.
I have noticed huge difference in active calorie burn for similar workouts. For eg. A 4.07 km indoor run shows 359 active calories burnt over 36 mins whereas a 4.32 km outdoor run shows 259 active calories burnt over same duration of 36 mins. the average heart rate in both cases is about 145-147 BPM.
Walking. Choose Indoor Walk for walking on a treadmill or for when you're walking indoors, like on an indoor track or in a mall. To improve the accuracy of pace and distance for Indoor Walk, first accumulate at least 20 minutes of outdoor walking using the Workout app to calibrate your watch.
For indoor workouts, Apple Watch relies mainly on your heart rate readings for calorie estimates, but for outdoor workouts, Apple Watch works in conjunction with iPhone (which has GPS) to calculate speed and distance.
