Hello Clem_Ha,


Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. If I understand correctly, your Apple Watch doesn't pause during workouts as expected. To help with this issue, follow the steps in these Apple resources to help calibrate your Apple Watch so it knows when you pause. Also you can manually pause workouts by pressing the side button and the Digital Crown at the same time or swiping right on the workout screen, then tap Pause. To continue, tap Resume.

Thanks for replying, Clem_Ha, and that additional info. Looking at this Apple resource, automatically pausing is only for running workouts and here is more info:

Pause running workouts automatically. Open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, tap My Watch, tap Workout, then turn on Running Auto Pause. Apple Watch automatically pauses and resumes your outdoor running workout—for example, if you stop to cross the street or get a drink of water.
