What IS a "watch workout" ???

Normally we use the gps for tracks and vmg and angles and speed, on some also heart rate, but what is a "workout" app?

Haven't tested the woo app yet, I'm looking forward to it.
But until now I used the swimming workout to track kitesurfing.
The surfing workout doesn't track GPS.
The downside of the swimming workout is that it will often think that you're not swimming and buzz your wrist to ask to stop/pause the activity. But as long as you ignore that, the tracking works just fine.
But then the watch calculates burned calories as if you were swimming?
Yes. I don't mind about that, the calculation for water related sports is never correct anyway.

The WOO app sets your session activity type to kitesurfing (if you care about it to be recorded correctly). Also, the fields on the screen are tunned specifically for kitesurfing - everything you need to see during the session.

And as others said, you don't need to buy the WOO to use the app :D !

I believe he's referring to the built-in Fitness App "Workout" options such as: Outdoor Walk, Outdoor Run, Outdoor Cycle, Indoor Walk, Indoor Run, Indoor Cycle, Elliptical, Rower, Stair Stepper, High Intensity Interval Training, Hiking, Yoga, Functional Strength Training, Dance, Cooldown, Core Training, Pool Swim, and Open Water Swim.

I found Open Water Swim to work best...until I started using 3rd party apps. Now I use the WOO App almost exclusively. Occasionally the Zef App for eFoiling.

Aaaah, thanks, that explains :D

Did not know anyone except overweight women used such things :naughty:

Sorry, could'nt help it, but so far away from what we use gps watches for, that I did not understand it was a serious question :rollgrin:

Aleks,

Do you know of any way to publish a WOO Big Air + GPS session recorded via Apple Watch to Strava?
Is there any Woo Watch App -> Strava integration, if not any plans for this?

thanks,
Melik
