How to Fix the Apple Watch Pausing During Workouts.

Apple launched the Apple Watch Series 4 this year, and it comes with a new feature that will help you stay motivated during your workouts. But as technology evolves, some bugs come along with it. For example, when you're doing any type of workout from running to cycling or even lifting weights, the Apple Watch may pause for up to 30 seconds. We don't know if this is intentional or not. It could be because of the amazing features like Digital Crown and infrared blasters on the Apple Watch Series 4 that make it so fast and efficient. Or maybe it's because of the new ECG feature? Either way, here are some things you can do to fix this issue.

What's the cause of this problem?

The Apple Watch may pause during workouts because the device is trying to figure out what type of exercise you're doing. This can be a bit frustrating, but it's a good thing in some cases. The Apple Watch Series 4 can figure out if you're running, cycling, or walking and will give you feedback accordingly.

Another reason why the Apple Watch may pause during your workout is that you're putting too much pressure on your wrist. You might be tightening your arm muscles too much or gripping the handlebars of your bike so hard that it starts to affect how this new technology works. It seems like a simple fix but first, make sure that you haven't tightened up one arm more than the other when doing any type of activity.

What Workouts Are Affected by the Apple Watch Pausing During Workouts?

There are a few types of workouts that will be affected by the Apple Watch pausing during workouts. These include running, cycling, lifting weights, and all other activities that require you to push your body to its limits. If you're doing any of these workouts, this may stop you from completing your set.

How to restart your workouts and fix this issue.

The first step is to restart your workout. To restart your workouts, open up the Workout app on the Apple Watch and swipe left on the screen.

Next, go ahead and select "Resume" from the popup menu that appears. You'll see a big green checkmark when you've successfully restarted your workout.

If these steps didn't work for you, then it's time to take an Apple Watch Genius Bar appointment.

How to keep your workouts from pausing in the future.

First, make sure you're in a place where the Apple Watch is less likely to pause during your workout. If you're running outdoors and it's windy, it won't stop. But if you're doing something like indoor cycling or weightlifting, it might be worth trying to move to a space where the Apple Watch won't pause during your workouts.

Second, try turning off your cellular connection in settings on your watch. This will help avoid any problems with connectivity.

Third, you can also reset the workout back to zero minutes by pressing the side button until "Reset Workout" appears at the bottom of the screen.

And lastly, if none of these tricks work for you, contact Apple Support! They will most likely just ask you to restart your watch and that should fix the issue
