Can I turn off my workout playlist when working out to display another screen?

When playing tennis my workout  playlist appears, can I turn this feature off, and have another display, such as the watch face?

Upon raising your wrist whilst a workout session is active, it is normal for the Workout app to be shown. It is not possible to configure Apple Watch to show the watch face instead.


To view your workout metrics, swipe sideways on the screen.


To remove your workout playlist, if desired:


  • On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch (tab) > Workout > Workout Playlist > select None.
