Best 5 Apple Watch health and fitness apps for 2023

New year, same you…just better

A new year usually means a whole bunch of new far-fetched resolutions that leave the chat a few weeks into the year. Here are some health and fitness apps for Apple users, to keep you on track throughout the year to achieve your goals. After all, consistency is key!

1) Prayoga

Prayoga meaning experiment has radically redesigned how one learns yoga. Yoga teachings are directly brought to the iPhone and Apple Watch through the app. Prayoga makes the most of watchOS and iOS technology to offer a truly unique experience on the wrist. The software instructs users on how to perform asanas through audio streams through the watch. Up to 17 joints of the body can be tracked using ML and vision-based body monitoring in Prayoga to assess an asana as it is being performed and provide real-time feedback on form corrections.

2) WatchTo5K

New year, new way to get off the couch. This app is a promise to get those of you who’d only ever run after a train or bus confidently pacing a 5k in six weeks. The time frame is dependent on your level of commitment though (don’t expect any magical feats). WatchTo5k enables you to workout without your phone banging around in your pocket. It tracks your route, distance, calories, average speed and heart rate while you run and stores all runs in Apple Health, all from your Apple Watch.

3) Headspace

This app aims to reduce stress, promote restful sleep, and improve user happiness. You can practise daily mindfulness and meditation with Headspace so that you can treat your mind nicely. You may learn to unwind, manage stress, focus, and relieve physical and mental strain with the help of this software. Every time, access guided meditations, lectures, and mindfulness exercises on topics including stress, general anxiety, worry, resilience-building, and more.

4) My Fitness Pal

My Fitness Pal makes sure users keep track of their progress toward their hydration, fitness, and weight loss objectives. It's like always having a nutrition advisor, intermittent fasting tracker, meal planner, and food journal with you when you use this all-in-one food tracker and health app. MyFitnessPal is not yet another app for a rigorous diet. You can use this health app to discover your habits, track your eating, make wiser food decisions, find inspiration and support, and achieve your health objectives.

5) Strava

You can now track your physical activity and improve your health using Strava. You may create a route for cycling, record your run, and analyse your training with all the metrics using the app for free! Turn your smartphone or GPS watch into a sophisticated tracker with Strava, whether you're preparing for a marathon or just enjoy going on bike rides. Reach your fitness objectives by joining the millions of athletes and active individuals!

All these apps are available on the App Store and are compatible with both iOS and watchOS.
