watchOS recognises a workout that wasn't started by the user, but fails to finish it

Product:watchOS + SDK Product Version:iOS 12
Classification:Bug Reproducible:Always
The new feature that recognises a workout that was made without being started by the user triggers a notification when the workout already finishes, and, if the user activates it, can lead to a workout being tracked way more than necessary.

I believe that the watch (since it can suggest the start, and end of a workout), should automatically start, and finish a workout, when the user acts on a notification.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Without starting an workout, go for a walk
2. After a while, stop the walk
2.1. At some point, in the previous steps, you will have received a notification telling you that a workout was detected, DO NOT act on it
3. After some minutes out of the work-out, act on the notification by recording the walk

Expected Results:
The workout should start, and stop right away, recording the walk that happened, but already finished

Actual Results:
The workout keeps running, so, if the user is not fully aware, it gets being tracked for a long time
