The digital world of fitness is heating up. With thousands of wellness apps available on marketplaces, it’s not always easy to find out which ones are worth the download. You probably have downloaded apps previously and quickly deleted them after they didn’t pass your test.

If you are intrigued by the digital fitness realm, you most likely have invested in some form of fitness tracking technology. The Apple Watch is the best-selling smartwatch of all time. One of the many benefits of this device are the apps that are available to help you achieve your fitness goals. There are two native health apps on the watch, the Activity app and Workout app. These allow the user to learn about their daily behavior, while setting fitness goals and helping them log their workouts.

But, there are thousands of other fitness apps out there. So with that in mind, here are three of the best fitness apps available on the Apple Marketplace for the Apple Watch.


Consuming enough water through-out your day is vital to living a healthy life. The one-part oxygen in H2O gives you that much needed energy during your workout. It is recommended that you consume at least 8 cups of water (if not more) a day and keeping track of this isn’t easy. The WaterMinder app makes it easy to keep tabs on your water intake and it will remind you to drink. These notifications will help individuals who have difficulty drinking water through their day. This app is priced at $1.99.

3 Minute Mindfullness

Living a healthy life is so much more than being active and eating right. You need to relax mentally also. 3 Minute Mindfullness is the perfect app for someone who needs a mental break, but doesn’t have a lot of time. In their day. For 3 minutes, the app helps you do some light mediation with breathing exercises. You can do this during your day or right before bed to decompress. It may not be an hour long yoga session, but it’s an easy way to add mediation into your daily routine. The app is also free.


This app has been around for years, but it’s so much more user friendly on the Apple Watch. This health app keeps track of your eating and sleeping habits to help you reimburse your energy. You can speak to Lark and update it on what you ate that morning and it will respond with health advice. For example, if you tell “Lark” that you ate “eggs bacon and a side of bacon” for breakfast, Lark will respond with “get more energy for your day with leaner protein in the morning.” This app is also free and it’s definitely worth a test!
