    I have 2 apps, a timer and an activity tracker. I start them both. The timer shows when my watch turns off - but when I raise my wrist and look at the screen, the activity tracker is sometimes showing. WHY???? Is this normal?
    I have Settings -> wake screen -> 'always show last app' selected. IWatch 3, nike edition

    Is Background App Refresh turned on for the Timer app?

    It might. Try it and see if it makes a difference. I tried your experiment and the last app showing on the screen when it went dark was always the one that showed the next time i raised my wrist.
