Allow multi-task when Fitness app is running

Currently when the Fitness app is running the screen is locked to that app and you can't swipe out of it unless you stop it. This means that if you're out running or at the gym and playing music from your phone then you can't control it to play next or up/down volume etc. You can't even check the time!

So here's my proposal for a user story (assuming the devs use Agile).


As a Ticwatch user,
I want to be able to do perform other task while the Fitness app is running,
so that I can track my workout while been able to control my music, check the time, receive notifications and pretty much access any other areas of the watch without having to stop the Fitness app and been able to come back to it at any time.

Press the crown button and you will be able to access other menus from the watch face.

Yes got this advice from a Facebook user... I couldn't figure it out because all other apps like stopclock, timer, etc will let you just swip off it and the back.
