If you are a wheelchair user who also has an Apple Watch, you may have been looking forward to iOS 10 and watchOS 3 to enable wheelchair workouts on your Apple Watch. However, you may have noticed that the workouts didn’t show up when you updated both your phone and watch! That’s because it takes just a simple setting in your Health app to enable them.

In your Health app, go into your profile on the top right, press Edit, and set Wheelchair to Yes.

On the next screen, click Edit on the top right and set "wheelchair" to yes. This would be the last option on the screen.

 

On the next screen, set Wheelchair to yes, and press done on the top right corner.

 

That’s it! Now when you go into your Workout app on your Apple Watch, you will see two wheelchair workouts which will track pushes instead of steps.
