I just bought a galaxy watch3 and im wondering how to add workouts from the Samsung Health app on the phone. When i go to the workout section on my phone i can add skiing or tennis and many more. But how do i get them on my watch?

You can't. S health on the watch is a different app that still doesn't have the complete set of workouts you get on the phone app. People (me included) have been complaining about this for years and Samsung still haven't done anything about it.

Great watches, poor software support.

I was annoyed that this was an issue with my GS3 and never would fathom that it would still be an issue with the Galaxy Watch 3, too. Yes, technically, other workout covers racquet sports, but for someone who might play Racquetball & Squash back to back, it would be preferred to have a way to identify which I'm doing when tracking the activity.

While I'm not privy to the inner workings of the Samsung watch interface, I'm pretty sure that it would be too hard to allow a user to duplicate "other" with custom activity names.

One has to ask the question, why would I have racquetball or squash on my phone app as an activity option and not my watch. Who in the right mind would play those sports with their phone in their pocket?  Clearly someone who spends more time on a computer than exercising.

I have this issue too, with rock-climbing and roller blading. 

However, I've realised that if you do the "other workout" on the watch you can then edit the workout type in the app on the phone afterwards. 

 

If you're doing back to back workout sessions you can record them both individually, making sure to finish workout and start a new one and the categorise them correctly in the app.

 

Very annoyed that I can't add the options straight on when I am doing certain workouts regularly, but at least this is a workaround for anyone that wants to really keep detailed tracking of the different types of workouts. 

 

Also if the standard type options don't work you can just rename it to whatever you want as an alternative option.
