Answer:

Hi


Yes - once it has been set up, the Activity app on Apple Watch tracks your steps automatically in the background, both during general daily wear and during workouts and regardless of whether your Apple Watch is connected to your iPhone, to Wi-Fi or, for Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) models to a cellular network:


Use the Activity app on your Apple Watch - Apple Support


Your daily steps total can be viewed:


  • Via the Activity app on your watch:

    Open the app and scroll to the bottom of the screen.

  • Via the Activity app on your iPhone:

    Select to view a day's results, then scroll to the bottom to see Steps and Distance.

  • Via the Health app on your iPhone:

Thanks for the details

I use health app to report the steps to my health insurance wellness portal/app, I still doubt my steps would be reported if I just use the watch(cellular) during workouts. Will my steps get recorded on health app if I just use the watch?

Yes, they will.


The Heath app on your iPhone combines health and fitness data - including steps - from Apple Watch, iPhone and any other sources that share data to the app.


When doing so, it automatically adjusts the reported results to avoid any double-counting of the same type of data for the same period from different sources.
