How to View & Sort Your Apple Watch Workout History

  1. To view your Apple Watch workout history, open the Activity app on your iPhone. 
  2. Tap on Workouts.



    In Workouts, you'll be able to view a summary of your exercise activity. You'll see the number of workouts, time spent, and calories burned per month, as well as the average length of workouts and the average amount of calories burned. To see more detail and sort by workout:
     
  3. Tap on All Workouts in the upper right corner of your screen.
  4. Tap on the workout you'd like data about; in this case, I chose Yoga. Now you can view all the data your Activity app has collected for this type of workout.


     
  5. Tap on a specific workout to view more information, or tap an additional workout type to view information about that as well. 

Now you can view and compare the data from all your different types of workouts over time!
