Yes there is: use the Strava app instead of the activity app.

No longer true as of the latest WatchOS update (which runs on all models.)

Also not true, adjustable in settings.

I could go on forever.
Sure but why do you care so much about your activity streak?

OP already has a 520, so in a lot of ways he's covered, but he can still use Strava on the watch to track his activity and use the Activity app as a motivator. Worked for me to the tune of 50lbs and counting.

Nice out of date info, though.
