Can anyone recommend a good fitness tracker or app to help me track my progress?

Hey everyone,

I'm new to fitness and want to start tracking my progress. I'm looking for a good fitness tracker or app that can help me stay on track and monitor my progress over time. I want something that can track my steps, calories burned, heart rate, and other important metrics. Ideally, the app or tracker should be easy to use and provide clear, actionable insights into my progress. I'm open to both free and paid options, so please let me know what you recommend and why. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Garmin Forerunner 245 GPS Running Smartwatch for a few months now and I'm really impressed with it. This watch has a lot of features that I find helpful, such as tracking my steps, heart rate, and calories burned. It also has a built-in GPS, so I can track my runs and see my distance and pace. Additionally, the watch has a feature called Training Status, which will analyze your past workout data to tell you if you're overtraining, undertraining, or on track. I find this feature really helpful because it helps me adjust my workouts accordingly. The watch also has a great battery life, so I can wear it for multiple days without needing to recharge it. The only downside is that this watch is a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it if you're serious about fitness and want a device that's accurate and reliable. Overall, I highly recommend the Garmin Forerunner 245 to anyone who wants a watch with a lot of features and capabilities for tracking fitness progress.



I have been using an Apple Watch to track my fitness progress recently and have found it to be super helpful. The watch tracks my steps, calories burned, and heart rate, and I can customize my goals as well. It also prompts me to stand up and move throughout the day, which helps me stay active. Plus, the watch integrates with other fitness apps (like MyFitnessPal, as mentioned earlier) so I can view all my data in one place. Apple has also included various workout options, such as yoga or dance, which I find fun and engaging. Even if you don't have an Apple Watch, if you have an iPhone, the built-in Health app can track some of the same data, although it's not as comprehensive. Overall, I would recommend an Apple Watch to anyone who wants a wearable tracker that's easy to use and offers a lot of features.



I've been using the Nike Training Club app and I really like it. It offers a lot of great workouts (both cardio and strength-based), and it's easy to track your progress over time. You can choose from different fitness levels and workout lengths, depending on your goals and availability. The app also provides audio cues during the workouts, so you don't have to keep checking your phone. Additionally, it has a feature that allows you to share your progress with friends, which can be really motivating. One downside is that some of the more advanced workouts require equipment that not everyone has, but there are still plenty of options that don't require any equipment at all. Overall, I recommend this app for anyone looking for a variety of workouts and a user-friendly tracking system.


Hey there!

I've been using the FitOn app for a little while now and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to track their fitness progress. The app has a ton of different workouts, including yoga, strength training, and cardio, all of which are led by certified trainers. It's also very user-friendly and easy to navigate, so you can quickly find a workout to fit your needs. One feature I particularly like is that the app integrates with Apple Health and allows you to log workouts elsewhere. The subscription prices are reasonable, and there's even a free version if you don't want to pay. Overall, if you're looking for a comprehensive workout tracking app, FitOn is definitely worth checking out!


Hey everyone,

I've been using the Strava app for a few months now and I really like it. It's a free app that tracks your runs, bike rides, and other outdoor activities using GPS, which is great for people who love the outdoors. I particularly like the app's social feature, which allows you to connect with friends and share your progress with them. You can also join local groups and participate in challenges, which can be very motivating. Another cool feature of Strava is that it allows you to compare your times on certain routes or segments against others who have done the same route, which can be motivating if you're looking to beat your personal best. The only downside is that the app can be pretty draining on your phone's battery if you're using it for longer runs or bike rides, so you might need to invest in a portable charger if you plan on using it frequently. Overall, I recommend the Strava app to anyone who enjoys outdoor activities and wants a fun and social way to track their progress.


Hi there!

I've been using the Fitbit Charge 4 for a few months now and I'm really happy with it. It tracks steps, calories burned, heart rate, and sleep, as well as offering various workouts and exercise tracking that I find very useful. It's also really easy to use - I just wear it on my wrist and check the app on my phone to see my progress throughout the day. The app itself is also great - it shows me all the data in a clear and easy-to-understand way, and I can set goals for myself that it will track and remind me of throughout the day. The only downside of the Charge 4 is that it's a bit pricey compared to some other options, but I think it's worth it if you're serious about fitness and want a device that's accurate and reliable. Overall, I highly recommend the Fitbit Charge 4 if you're looking for a good fitness tracker.



I have been using MyFitnessPal for a while now and it's been really helpful for me in tracking my progress. It's a free app that has a huge database of foods, so it's really easy to log your meals and get accurate calorie counts. You can also enter your exercise information and it will track how many calories you've burned, as well as provide an estimate of how many calories you can consume that day without exceeding your limit. One thing I really like about MyFitnessPal is that it allows you to set a goal for yourself (like losing weight or gaining muscle) and it will provide recommendations for your calorie intake and macros. Overall, I recommend this app if you're looking for a free and comprehensive way to track your progress.
