Apple Watch sync bug fixes
If you are having sync issues, please restart your Apple Watch.
We would also like to apologize for lack of updates. We have been hard at work on a big new release that will be out with iOS 13. See you in September!

Simple but works, useful watch/phone app
This app lacks a lot of the features of the fancy workout log apps, but it makes up for it by getting the job done with no fuss. You enter the name of the exercise, choose which muscle group it affects, and what you want to track (time, weight, reps, or a combination of any or all).
You can build a workout on the fly, or plan it out before you go to the gym. You can enter as many exercises as you want in a workout, including the weights, reps, and times, and then mark them completed as you do them. You can create supersets (grouped sets), and add rest periods if you are building your own HIIT sessions.
If you use an Apple Watch for your workouts, you can use the watch app to adjust the actual reps, weights, and times spent on each exercise. This gets tedious if you don’t fill in expected amounts before working out, since the crown wheel is used to adjust those numbers, and weights are measured in 1lb increments. It’d be nice if there was a way to quickly increase/decrease these amounts. You can also pull out the phone and enter numbers there, and it will sync with the phone and vise versa.
This app doesn’t include pre-built workouts or coaching, but the apps that do typically have recurring monthly charges that can add up to over $100 per year in some cases.
This does what I need, and has a clean but useful watch app. I’m very happy with it, especially considering the cost (or lack thereof).
The best I’ve found
I have tried every single strength training app that is currently in the App Store. Everyone fell short except for this one. I am a graphic designer, so even though some people may not think it affects the functionality of the app, the look of it is extremely important to me. Fitsession looks beautiful, is intuitive, flexible, and the watch app is the easiest to use of all the others.
Also, I had a question and emailed the developers. I received a response from Alex within 24 hours. This is very rare compared to some of the response times of other developers... this tells me he cares about the people using his app. Thank you for that.
I love this app for my workouts. I have an Apple Watch so the completion of a lift and rest and lift and rest etc. are nice to tap on my watch. I use body for life so the setup is perfect for the lifting part. The cardio however only has one option and that is to countdown or up. I would really appreciate it if you could have the app give 1 minute audio beeps like the lifting. I run or cycle for 20 minutes and I have to change speed and intensity every minute. It would be nice not to have to keep my eyes glued to the phone to see the timer like when I am lifting. Thanks.
