Best Apple Watch Fitness Apps for 2020

Best Apple Watch Fitness Apps for 2020

No longer is your Apple Watch just a device for answering calls and notification alerts, they’ve evolved into something of a companion for many people. An extension of your smartphone if you will and one that sits closer to your heart- quite literally. Apple supports a plethora of fitness apps, stress reducing apps, productivity apps and lifestyle apps.

We will be releasing a series of our favourites so stay tuned, but since we are in the thick of summer, were going to share our favourite fitness apps:

Streaks Workout

Streaks Workout is a simple app that provides you with several exercise and workouts of varying difficulty. Once you’re done, you simply tap on the screen to log your workout. There are 30 equipment-free exercises to choose from, perfect for a quick home workout. You can also create custom exercises based on your goals. The app can also be synced to your Apple Music account and will play your favourite workout music to get you in the mood for those burpies, side planks or squats. 

Sworkit Fitness

Whether you’re a beginner or a full-on athlete, Sworkit Fitness is for everyone. The app has a user base of over 50 million and also offers additional features and programs via a subscription service that ranges from $2.99 per month to $19.99 for a once-off yearly fee. Sworkit offers a 6-week program that will help you achieve your fitness and weight-loss goals and comes with a massive database of workouts which you can do virtually anywhere – even at the office.

Strava

Strava is idealised amongst the serious health and fitness fundis as the app helps you monitor various aspects of your fitness over time. Strava users are able to set goals and with a connected community, can compare their own progress against people who have similar goals. Our favourite feature, however, is the app using GPS to show the average runtime of other runners on the same route. Talk about motivation to get boost your speed! 

iSmoothRun

This is a must-have for obsessive runners, because iSmoothRun has several features you’d find in a dedicated running watch that you don’t get from Apple’s native run-tracking or from popular alternatives like Strava and Nike Run Club. The killer feature is the ability to set up custom workouts and follow them from your wrist. You can also set up six data fields of your choice to show across two screens while running, with in-depth options like your pace over the past 30 or 60 seconds.

Dress your tech for the occasion

While you’re keeping your body and mind in tip-top shape, make sure you look the part and pair it with one of our super affordable Apple Watch Sport bands starting from just R195. Some of our favourites include the our Classic Sport Silicone Apple Watch Straps, available in a multitude of colours and a firm favourite amongst our customers due to its breathability, durability and comfort.
