If you are trying to lose weight, Apple Watch can help you. Set your goal to 10,000 steps every day, or at least on work days.

How to check your step count with Apple Watch

Why count steps, not calories?

Thanks to the heart rate monitor, Apple counts the number of calories you burn during the day. Nevertheless, in order to get more accurate measurements, especially during workouts, you should specify what exercise you are performing, for example, jogging, running on a treadmill, using an elliptical machine, etc.
