Apple Watch is arguably the best fitness tracker also. And this is one of the reasons why people buy this smartwatch from Apple. For a picky fitness enthusiast, segments of their workout are sacrosanct. They want to know how many calories they burn after which exercise. And for this, they can segment workout mid-session on Apple Watch.
A fitness freak normally takes different activities in a two-hour session; the activities might include running, cycling or weight-lifting. While running and swimming can be tracked with laps you have covered during a certain period, but the person doesn’t have liberty to select those markers. For example, you warm up your body with a treadmill run, and then do some strenuous workout, which is followed by more exhausting power yoga session. How will you measure the calories burnt by each session.
Thankfully, Apple Watch offers a feature to segment workout mid-session.

Step #1: Launch Workout app on your Apple Watch.
Step #2: Next, choose any workout you want to start with. On your mark, get set, go!
Step #3: When you want to make changes in the intensity of workout or you want to mark up that session (just to count calories you burnt), simply double tap anywhere on your Apple Watch Workout screen.
This will conclude your Segment 1 and the Workout screen will confirm the same.
Step #4: For a couple seconds, your Apple Watch will flash Segment information and then your workout recording will resume.
Here, you can keep on doing your laborious activities, i.e. exercise, and whenever you want to mark up workout segment, just double tap on the screen and create Segment 2, 3, 4 and more. You can break down your workout in any number of segments.
