Get reminders to stop your workout

Important: To determine when you’ve finished a workout, workout reminders use your device’s accelerometer data to determine when a workout stops. This data never leaves your device.

To help save battery, Fit detects when you’ve stopped moving and alerts you to stop your workout on your watch.

Fit determines whether you’ve stopped a workout:

  • When you’re still for five minutes after activities, like a run or a bike ride.
  • When you’re still for 10 minutes after some other activities, like a walk.
Tip: Since many workouts include walks between activities, you’ll only get a reminder to end your workout if you‘ve stopped moving for several minutes. For example, if you run, stop and start to walk, or weightlift, stop and walk to get a drink, you won’t get an alert.

What you need

Fit only sends end workout reminders on some Wear OS devices.
