Ratings and Reviews
Love It - highly motivating!
I joined a team of strangers using this app a year and a half ago. That first team didn’t work out - two of the women weren’t serious about exercising and consistently wouldn’t close their exercise rings which frankly was highly frustrating for me when I was trying so hard to make sure to get my rings closed. My message here would be if this happens to you don’t give up! Try a different group until you find a group that works for you because in my experienceI I almost deleted the app but thankfully after a few tries I found three other women that have become not only my teammates in exercise but in life. I never want to let them down so I make sure to do my exercise to close my challenge rings every day. I have never in my entire life worked out every single day but because of this app and my friends that I’ve met through it I do. If you are looking for motivation to work out every day this is it and I highly recommend it!
Developer Response ,
Great review. Great advice. Great reviewer. Thanks!
Challenges and Points
The Challenges App is very motivating and I participate in several Challenges every month. Now and then when maximum points are achieved the next day points disappear and are not always retrieved by syncing. Filing a ticket is useless, the reply blames your other apps. You have to increase move points above and beyond the required threshold to avoid getting your points stolen by the app. One (1) point loss can put you way behind in a competitive group challenge where 20 or more have perfect scores. If your progress is not recorded in the Activity App it won’t be in Challenges either. If your watch and phone Activity App isn’t syncing that can be troublesome. I have had to find and use a variety of troubleshooting methods to stay in sync and avoid losing points.
This App has basically changed my life. I am a participant in WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers). Although many of the uninformed think of WW as a mere diet— the reality is it is a lifestyle choice. It’s not just what you eat but how you think about eating. And it’s also about staying active. That’s where your App comes in. I have the Apple Watch and iPhone, but these tools really spring to life when you connect them with the Challenges App. Every month I compete with about 10 other WW members in all parts of the United States and we have a blast. I never win, but that’s not the point. I try to close my rings every day to stay competitive. It’s addicting.
The only improvement I would request is to integrate FitBit into the App for my WW friends who prefer that device to the Apple Watch. I’ve noticed there is a link to that in the settings and I have asked a few folks to try it out since I don’t own a Fitbit. I’m looking forward to the possibility of adding them into the next Challenge.
Thanks again for this amazing App.
