    "50 million users can't all be wrong, right? This App had been around for awhile and the developers have a good sense of what's going on in the community, as well as staying in tune with the new wearable fitness devices. "

    "MyFitnessPal was actually a great app before the most recent update. I've used it for years as an app on my phone and it's great that it syncs to my Apple Watch. I'm hoping that the issues I've been having will be resolved with a new update. Once it's fixed I'm sure it will return to being one of the best health and fitness apps for Apple Watch. "

    "While I like the idea of an interactive health app, Gymaholic is a bit too much. It’s too game-like, which seems like it distracts from the apps actual purpose. This might be more enjoyable for younger people, but I found it to be ineffective in following my progress. In all honesty, I’d rather just have a straightforward health monitoring app without all of the bells and whistles. "

    "I have been wanting to try yoga for a long time. For me this app has been the perfect solution. It has plenty of moves and tips for beginners but I can tell that it has plenty of more advanced options to use as my skills increase. Thanks to this app I've finally started a daily yoga habit."

    "CARROT Fit was recommended to me by a friend I trust. I almost didn't even download it because it looked so dumb. It's very gimmicky. He insisted I give it a shot so I did... and it's amazing. It's oddly charming in it's cheesiness and keeps me coming back."
