Always On, Keeping Workout displayed

When I'm working out and using the watch to track my time, calories, heart rate, etc. I enable Always on thinking it would keep the workout status showing. Always on keeps the display active, but it reverts to the watch face after about 15 seconds or so, and when I raise my arm it will display workout. How can I keep the workout information persistent on the display when I'm working out? This seems like it should always be displayed until I'm done working out.

Unfortunately, this has been an issue even since the gear sport. There has been requests for the screen to stay on during a workout but there hasn't been any solutions (that I know about.)

Ugh, Well that is very disappointing. Unfortunate it takes Samsung so long to acknowledge requests from the community! I wonder if there is an app to force running app on all the time???

Re: Always On, Keeping Workout displayed

I agree.  Just got the watch and I want to keep the workout screen "Always On" when working out without going to the watch face.  When I tap it, I sometimes accidentally pause the workout.  Also, the music screen keeps popping up.  Hopefully a fix to keep the workout screen is forthcoming.

You can se the screen timeout to 5 minutes. It's not perfect, but it's alot better than having it shut off every 15 secends.

Hi guys, you can keep the display always on to track your workout. Here's how:

1. Click the three dots beside the workout you want to doScreen_20200122_091959.png

 

2. Scroll to the bottom, and click the always on display toggle to turn it onScreen_20200122_092010.png

 

The screen will always on, showing your heartbeat, how far you've run, speed, etc.

 

Hope this help!
