Apple Watch not saving workout when battery dies
Quote | Reply
I was surprised to discover that Apple Watch 4 didn’t save my the data of my run when it died before I finished. I couldn’t imagine how that decision could be made by the software people at Apple other then their utter contempt for their users. I wonder what other Apple Watch running apps‘ behavior, e.g. Runtastic. Anyone has experienced?

Had this happen using ismoothrun with the same result - all data was lost.

It’s not abject contempt. It is complete ignorance. Apple is not a sport company. They don’t have a clue. GPS and HR take 30 seconds or more to get a lock after starting an activity.

That seems odd, but also not surprised that Apple doesn't "get it" on this front. The file format, whatever it is, should be logging lat/long etc the entire time and caching it in some capacity. See if you can file a bug ticket for this issue.
