A view that displays data from a HealthKit activity summary object.


@interface WKInterfaceActivityRing : WKInterfaceObject


The WKInterfaceActivityRing view displays data from an HKActivitySummary object, using the Move, Exercise, and Stand activity rings (see Figure 1).

Figure 1

An activity ring view

The activity ring view always appears as a black rectangle with red, green, and blue concentric rings. The rings are centered in the view, and sized to fit the available space (see Figure 2).

Figure 2

The rings fitted to the available space

The rings have two different ways to display a lack of data. One indicates that the activity summary is missing, and the other indicates that the activity summary’s values are set to zero. If the ring has a nil-valued activitySummary property, the rings appear empty (see See Figure 3). Use this to indicate that there is no summary data available for the specified day (for example, dates in the future).

Figure 3

The rings when no activity summary is available

If the summary has zero-valued quantities set for its value properties, the ring displays a dot at the top of the ring (see Figure 4). Use this to indicate that the user has not yet burned any active calories, exercised, or earned any stand hours for the specified day.

The rings when the activity values are all set to zero

To display activity summary data from the HealthKit store, use an HKActivitySummaryQuery object. You can also instantiate and display your own HKActivitySummary objects, as needed.

To display data for a ring, the HKActivitySummary object must have a non-nil quantity for both the corresponding value property and goal property (see Table 1).

Table 1

Properties affecting rings

The activity ring view colors a percentage of each ring based on these properties, as shown here:

ring percent = value property quantity / goal property quantity
