Top 8 Weight Loss Apps Apple Watch

Of course, perhaps the one strand of apps that has and will continue to benefit from the world’s current fascination with wearable tech are fitness apps. The developers behind these apps have been in a rush recently, despite the existence of wearable devices from companies like Pebble and Android, to update their iOS editions to support the Apple Watch and for good reason. There are however a bunch of different breeds out there when it comes to fitness apps, each with something different that looks to be noticed in what has become a very crowded market. Perhaps the most interesting of these are the weight loss apps, which is really a side that most fitness apps own but with a specific emphasis on things like calorie counting, staying active and of course psychological motivation. Counting each calorie that your body takes on board can become something of a chore when you have to log each meal, but it does become somewhat easier when doing so from your wrist!

8. Inlivo (Free)

Let’s start with Inlivo, which is a pretty good app when it comes to maintaining a healthy diet so as to lose weight. In fact, the devlopers themselves state as much, saying that “maintaining a healthy weight isn’t about short-term dietary changes”, but about “consuming a well-balanced healthy diet that includes a variety of foods that give you the nutrients you need to maintain your health, to feel good, and to have energy”. Inlivo allows you to break down your calorie intake throughout the day and then intuitively displays this in a range of different graphical presentations that allow evern the least tech savvy to understand how they are progressing towards a health diet and a healthier lifestyle! – Download from iTunes

7. Lark (Free)

As we mentioned briefly above, the fitness and weight loss app market is very much a crowded one, though that isn’t to say you can’t find some success with the right kind of angle. A favored technique among those looking to force their way into such a landscape is to reimagine the context of a given product. Weight loss apps for example are specifically based around some kind of meal logging interface, but Lark does away with all that. Instead, the developers have posited their weight loss app within the kind of context that many more people are familiar with: that of a messaging app. You write to what is essentially your personal weight loss coach, and receive feedback telling you how many calories you have taken on, how much of a given food it’s best to eat, and a whole lot mor. – Download from iTunes

6. Fooducate (Free)

Fooducate isn’t exatly a weight loss app, but more of a nutrition app that is designed to make users more aware of what they are eating and as such form a better diet. I’ve mentioned before my love of the use of rings on Apple Watch apps so far, and Fooducate definitely embraces this. Your calorie intake throughout the day is perfectly displayed in an array of different rings that allow you to quickly understand where you are at a glance. I like that the app gives you a “budget” when it comes to calories, for example 1800 in a day, and then ticks these off as you eat meals while at the same time tracking the calories burned as you move around.  – Download from iTunes

5. Human (Free)

Human, as you can perhaps deduce from th screenshot above, offers support and guidance through your dieting period, but it’s also a lot more than that. The developers behind this one understand that tracking your calories and logging your meals is one thing, but remaining active is just as important. As such, Human encourages you to get up and move around for a fairly small period of time every day. The app picks up things like walking to work, riding on the bus, or your bike, and will take them into account. It’s great because while you might not always have immediate access to your iPhone, the app allows you to check your progress and receive reminders directly to your wrist! – Download from iTunes

4. MyPlate Calorie Tracker (Free)

Livestrong.com is a well known weight loss website with years of experience, so it makes sense that their venture into the app world with MyPlate Calorie Tracker has turned out to be a good one. As the title suggests, the main idea behind this app is to track your food and drink intake on a daily basis, with MyPlate offering you handy reminders and perhaps most importantly smooth graphical representations of your intake over the course of the day so you know where you stand with a quick glance down at your wrist. – Download from iTunes

3. Lifesum (Free)

Excercise is one thing, but again, some people tend to overlook things like eating and drinking the right things as though exercise will paper over the cracks. Here’s a pro tip: it won’t! You can run 10km a day but if you are eating and drinking the wrong things in the wrong amounts, then that’s all for nought. This is where apps like Lifesum come in, which has been described as something like a food journal on your wrist – that is, with this latest Apple Watch update – and I’d hasten to agree with that summation. The app allows you to easily track wht your body is ingesting, and give you good feedback on the calories you have consumed; reminders on what to eat and the right portion size for the kind of meals you are having. – Download from iTunes

2. Noom Coach: Weight Loss (Free)

Noom Coach is another of those that looks to differentiate slightly when it comes to developing an app that will stand out in a crowded market. Here, there are actually a few things that set the app apart, including the social aspects and the idea of communicating with an unseen weight loss coach so as to receive some kind of feedback. My favorite thing about this app though is the daily breakdown it gives you, which makes planning your meals that much easier – and with the recent Apple Watch update, you can check on your progress and receive reminders directly to your wrist! – Download from iTunes

1. Lose It! (Free)

Lose It! might be one of the more simple fitness or weight loss apps out there right now, but it remains one of the more powerful. The main emphasis here is of course, once again, calorie intake and the amount you are taking on with every meal. Your intake is broken down with a handy ring-shaped pie chart of sorts, if that makes sense, which offers great at a glance guidance as to how much you’ve eaten so far today and when you should be eating throughout the day. There are handy reminders as to when you should be eating, and the Apple Watch functionality makes it a lot easier than it ever was with the iPhone to log meals and calories when on the go. – Download from iTunes
