Can I set my own goals?

Your move goal in Challenges is not the same as your Watch Move goal. The Challenges Move goal is determined by your current weight in Lose It!. You cannot set your own move goal in a Challenge because your move goal defaults to be 2x your weight. This is to keep it fair among all participants.

What about Stand and Exercise goals?

Prior to 2020, Apple didn't allow the Exercise or Stand goals to be changed on the Watch. The Apple Watch goals defaulted to 30 minutes for the Exercise goal and 12 hours for the Stand goal. Our app follows these default goals, and they cannot be changed at this time.
