    Hi all

    I am experiencing the following issue with my watch.
    A few times I tried to do some outdoor cycling workouts and I started the Outdoor Cycling workout before I jump on the bike. When I finished my ride I realised that the watch had paused from the very first few seconds so it didn't record a thing.

    Has anyone else experienced this?
    Is there a way to disable auto-pause on workouts?

    That also happens when on outdoor walking and I am pushing my babies stroller. On that case I can be more forgiving because my hand is on the stroller's handle while I am walking so it's not moving to detect the walking. But it would be useful to have the option to disable auto pause since the watch cannot be that smart to detect everything.

    Thanks in advance

    Auto pause worked pretty well for me walking with my wife on the beach last week. A number of times she'd stop to take a photo or examine an interesting shell or whatever; the pause kicked in about five seconds after I stopped, and the recording resumed about five seconds after I started walking again. It never failed to resume the activity after a pause over perhaps 6-8 pauses.
