Totally disappointed in it. If I forget to switch off running or walking and then get in the car and drive home it adds the car distance and time to my workout. This is not how the old active 2 watch worked. That was far better. It would also use the watch workout to overwrite counted steps taken by the phone which were being recorded in my running pouch , by noting that the watch was manually set to a workout at the same time as the phone was doing that. As ever with Samsung the newer the product the more their software regresses. I think this truly has to be the last time I buy anymore Samsung hardware. Might have to move to apple or Google next.

@terraslateuk: I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment surrounding this issue. Once you have engaged in an activity for more than 10 minutes (for running, 3 minutes) while wearing the Watch, it automatically recognises that you are exercising and records exercise information such as the exercise type, duration and calories burned. When you stop doing some exercises for more than one minute, the Watch automatically
recognises that you have stopped exercising and recording will end.

To check which exercises are supported, please head to the Samsung Health app > Settings > Activities to detect, and make sure that running and walking are both enabled. Now, rather than manually enabling the workout, allow the 'Auto detect workouts' feature to kick in, and this should hopefully end your workout after a period of inactivity, without adding your car journey to the stats.

I have a watch 5 pro and it's fine like Andrew says its all automatic. Go for a change of device if you wish but I will tell you now it ain't any better at apple I am here because of their bugs. If you fine with ringer changing volume on its own and notifications disappearing into thin air then get yourself down to the local apple shop you'll be well happy 👍
