Prior to getting started with running Pokémon Go on Apple Watch, it requires permission to run in the background. This helps it to keep track of your activity, and grab different HealthKit data to offer more input to your workouts.
All these should show up by themselves automatically, but in case they don’t, you can do the following:
Step 1: Open Settings from your iPhone Home screen.
Step 2: Select Privacy.
Step 3: Select Health.
Step 4: Now, choose Pokémon Go.
Step 5: Select the switch buttons for every category and change them all to ‘On’.
