Has anyone tried any new fitness gadgets or apps that they recommend?

Hi everyone,

I recently started my fitness journey with the goal of losing weight and getting in shape. I have been trying to incorporate more physical activity into my daily routine, and I am also looking for some new gadgets or apps that could help me track my progress and stay motivated.

I have heard about some fitness trackers and smartwatches that can monitor heart rate, calories burned, and steps taken. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for products that they have tried and found helpful.

Additionally, I am open to trying out new fitness apps that could provide workout plans or nutrition advice. I would appreciate any suggestions on apps that you have found useful.

Thank you in advance for your responses!

Hi everyone,

I've been using the Whoop Strap 3.0 for several months now, and I find it extremely helpful in tracking my fitness and recovery. The strap provides daily insights on my sleep, heart rate variability, and recovery, which helps me optimize my workouts and daily routine. It also gives me a recovery score that lets me know how well my body has recovered from previous workouts, making it easier for me to decide whether I should push myself or take a rest day.

For workout apps, I've been using the Centr app. Developed by Chris Hemsworth, it has a range of workouts, including HIIT, strength, yoga, and boxing, which are all designed by fitness professionals. The app provides meal plans, mindfulness exercises, and daily reminders to help me stay on track with my fitness goals.

I hope this recommendation helps you in choosing the right fitness gadget and app that works best for you!


Hi there,

I've been using the Apple Watch Series 6 for a while now, and I highly recommend it for fitness tracking. The watch can track a wide range of activities, from running and cycling to swimming and yoga. The heart rate monitor and breathing app have helped me stay focused during my workouts and improve my overall fitness level.

For workout apps, I highly suggest trying out the Down Dog app. It's great for yoga and has different levels and styles you can choose from. The app also has a feature that allows you to customize your practice time and music selection, making it feel like a personalized experience every time.

I hope you find these recommendations helpful!



I would recommend the Peloton bike if you're looking for an at-home workout gadget. It may be a bit expensive, but it's worth it if you enjoy cycling or spinning. The live and on-demand classes are fun, challenging, and the instructors provide great music playlists. Plus, the leaderboard feature can make the workout feel like a friendly competition, which adds to the motivation.

When it comes to workout apps, I have been using the MyFitnessPal app for years now, and it has helped me with tracking my calorie intake and calculates my daily calorie goals based on my weight loss goals. I also use the water tracking feature to ensure I'm staying hydrated throughout the day.

I hope this helps you with your fitness journey!


Hey there,

I have been using the Garmin Forerunner 245 for a few months now and am loving it. The watch has a long battery life and GPS tracking, making it great for outdoor runs. The watch also has features such as VO2 max and training status, which helps me assess my fitness level and adjust my training plan accordingly. The watch's app also provides detailed analysis of my workout and recovery data, which I find very helpful.

When it comes to apps, I use the Aaptiv app for my workouts. The app has a wide range of classes, including running, strength, and yoga. I appreciate the high-quality audio and clear instructions provided by the trainers in the app. Moreover, the personalized coaching and curated playlists make my workouts more engaging and enjoyable.

I hope this helps!


Hi there!

I have been using the Fitbit Charge 4 for a few months now, and I highly recommend it. The heart rate monitor and GPS tracking features have been very useful for my runs, and the step tracker keeps me accountable for my daily activity. The app is also very user-friendly and has helped me stay motivated with its daily active minute goals and reminders to move.

As for workout apps, I have been really enjoying the Nike Training Club app. It has a variety of workouts at different difficulty levels, and I love how I can personalize my workout plan based on my fitness goals. The app also has helpful videos that demonstrate proper form for each exercise.

Hope this helps!



I have been using the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 for my fitness tracking, and it has proven to be really useful. The watch has a myriad of fitness tracking features, including heart rate monitor, GPS tracking, and automatic workout detection, which is really handy when I forget to start tracking a workout. The watch also provides goal-based exercises and coaching for different workout styles, which make the workouts more focused and efficient.

As for apps, I found the FitOn app quite convenient. The app offers a variety of workouts that fits different fitness levels, and its 24/7 live community classes with real trainers provide a sense of accountability and support. The app also includes a nutrition guide with meal plans and healthy recipes.

I hope this helps!
