Why are Apple Watch activity rings moving on by themselves


I am observing my Apple Watch activity rings are moving insanely. I did talk to customer service they were also unable to help me. Did anyone face the issue before?

What happened today?

  • I wore the watch to the gym and started the Aaptiv app in my iPhone 7 Plus. In the workout I did use my workout app.
  • After the workout was over, I found the watch using aaptiv app by itself, no idea how and why?
    And my activity rings are increasing insanely.

I did unpair and pair the watch. I uninstalled the aaptiv app from Apple Watch. But still the problem persists. I don’t know how to factory reset the watch. I did not try this option.

How can I stop the rings from increasing without any movement?

Could be another app recording a workout automatically. Check the Health app or the Workouts tab in the app you screenshotted, to see if you have any apps registering additional workouts in the background.
