Apple Watch: Top 8 Health and Fitness Apps



The Apple Watch is one of the most convenient portable gadgets that Apple’s ever released. Many people use the smartwatch to track their health and workout routine. However, with so many apps, it can be hard to make a decision about which apps to use. Here, we present our list of the top nine health and fitness apps for the Apple Watch. Well, what are you waiting for? Check your pulse and check out the list below!

Number Eight: WaterMinder for the Apple Watch

You might not consider drinking water part of your fitness routine, but you should! With WaterMinder, Apple Watch users can track how much water they drink and make sure they’re on top of their water consumption throughout the day. It’s well worth the $1.99.

Number Seven: Equinox

Though you technically have to be a member of Equinox to get any use out of this app, it’s helpful and innovative enough to use on this list. Apple Watch users can sign up for classes through the watch, and the smartwatch will even send an alert when a class you’ve been dying to try is available! On top of all those perks, the app is free.

Number Six: Lark

Lark is by no means new, but it’s excellent for Apple’s smartwatch. Lark tracks your habits and helps you think about how your habits relate to your health. On top of that, the app allows users to speak to it like a coach, and it’s free!

Number Five: Runtastic Pro

For runners, there’s no Apple Watch app quite like Runtastic Pro. The app has an in-ear trainer that can talk to you during your workout, and there’s a wealth of information the app makes available on the watch’s interface. It’s $4.99, but for serious runners, there’s no substitute.

Number Four: Seven

The focus of seven is on seven-minute workouts, so this is great for people who want to be active without committing to an hour-long yoga session. The app has great visual displays of what your body should do, and it also includes a timer. What’s great is that the app is on your watch, rather than a computer or phone, so you don’t have to awkwardly look at something in between 30-second sets.

Number Three: Pocket Yoga

For Apple Watch users who are just getting into yoga, Pocket Yoga is the perfect choice. The app has tons of visual displays that show exactly what your body should be doing, and it’s especially convenient to have these visuals on your wrist. Plus, it’s free!

Number Two: MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal has been a go-to health and fitness app for quite some time, but it’s completely reimagined for the Apple Watch. Users can more easily log what they’ve eaten and view their stats on the smartwatch, and the app will also sync with Apple’s activity app.

Number One: Carrot Fit

Finally, one of the best health and fitness apps for the Apple Watch has to be Carrot Fit. Carrot Fit includes seven-minute workouts that can be hilarious, terrifying, and anywhere in between. For reference, two such exercises include running from ostriches and punching Justin Bieber. Fun! Thanks for reading!
