I love the Apple Watch activity rings. I really do. Whoever at Apple came up with the idea of showing your activity as three concentric circles that you close when you complete your goal deserves a raise. It taps into the completionist part of my brain a way few other things do. It bothers me to leave one un-closed, which is exactly what it should do.
But I do have one problem with the current approach. This is what the current complications look like on the watch.
The trouble I have is the visual difference between the last three’s exercise ring. I find it very difficult to tell the difference between an almost filled exercise ring and an actually filled exercise ring. This has caused me to miss a few days unintentionally when I thought I had reached my goal, only to discover later that I’d slightly missed it. I hit this on the 42mm watch, looking at my wife’s 38mm the problem is even more significant.
