The Apple Watch Ultra has a useful function with regard to starting workouts. This way you can use Precise start to start the workout at the right time.
Most likely you start a workout and don’t get into action right away. You quickly tie your laces, adjust the sleeves of your jacket or close the gate. Unfortunately, the counter has already started running and measurements are being registered. With accurate start you can set up the workout and then start at the right time.
Set accurate start
At the moment, the function can only be used in combination with an Apple Watch Ultra and can be activated via the steps below.
- Open Settings on your Apple Watch.
- Navigate to ‘Workout’
- Enable the ‘Precise start’ option
Start workout via the action button
Start a workout in the usual way, but you will notice that it will not start immediately. Instead, you see a ‘paused’ view with all readings still at zero. At the top you see a compass rose instead of a workout symbol.
When you’re ready to start the workout, press the action button on your Apple Watch. Immediately the training starts and the data is measured. You always have to manually start the workout this way, it’s not like it will start automatically when you start moving.
Customize and personalize the Action button on an Apple Watch Ultra, so you can quickly start an app, assignment or task.
