Excellent Product 4/5
I have been using this product now for 4 months. I think this app is top-notch in such a crowded market. It has contributed to me gaining at least 5 pounds of muscle.
Things I would like to see added:
-A feature within guided mode which counts within the last couple of reps in the set telling you encouraging words to help finish your set.
-A button shortcut to pause the workout. Or Siri command to pause the workout.
-A section to write notes for the workout. Guided or Freemode.
-In Guided Mode if I change the weight of the first set default that new weight for the rest of the sets for that exercise.
I will probably have more ideas very soon.
Things I’ve had an issue with:
-almost every workout it keeps telling me to purchase or restore my purchase even though I bought the annual membership. Each time it does this, I have to keep uninstalling and installing the app to use guided mode. This is frustrating because I have to keep teaching the app my motions and weight synced.
Other than that it’s working great. Maybe add an option to purchase this app for a one time fee charge like 99.99; I don’t know offer something reasonable.
Best app ever 5/5
By God Miguel
Love this app! Videos are great! Helps out a lot for beginners!
Good app 3/5
The idea is there... still a lot of kinks to workout. I have a lot of hope... Just need to fix a few things!
App doesn’t upgrade on Apple Watch 1/5
I thought this app was gonna be awesome at first.. After I began to use for a few exercises it said I needed to upgrade to premium.. I did and the app never synced the upgrade and gave an error msg in settings when trying to sync to iPhone.. Paid $4.99 for nothing and never got any help from the developer or Apple!!! You guys need to fix or get rid of this app..
I spent a few hours setting everything up. Then I went to the gym opened my watch and started a routine. Guess what? Despite all the advertising that only works if you pay the monthly premium fee. So it’s completely useless and less you want to spend a monthly fee.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!!! 1/5
Just don’t go by the rating , or what the description or the other reviews have to say. I would give it a negative rating if I could!
This app does not work on the Apple Watch Series 3. Wastes all afternoon setting up workouts only to realize that it won’t work on the watch u less you pay the monthly subscription fee!
How does it makes sense to pay for a workout routine you setup (not using the ones offered by the App) .. with workouts that done exist on the app at all?
Could be great 1/5
Great idea that was not realized!
I can use the workouts if using them on my phone, but using them through my watch requires a payment plan! No thanks.
Apple Watch support 1/5
In order to do a guided workout on your Apple Watch, you have to buy premium. Otherwise it’s a good app.
Very good but not all features enable 2/5
This app does a very good job at detecting exercise. It allows you to have eight exercises but you only have three.
I lowered my rating because I do not like renting software. The app is not very useful without renting the software.
I am currently looking for another app that does not require renting. I am willing to pay but not forever.
I have to use pushups and jumping jacks to track my abdominal exercise. They will not allow you to rename and you can only have three new exercises.
I only track 6 to 7 exercises this is not worth a monthly fee.
This is one of the coolest workout apps for weight training i have ever used! 5/5
I tried this at the gym for the first time yesterday and after training it for a motion it was was pretty good at remembering and identifying the workout each following set. I have also been looking for a good app to record calories burnt during weight training and this works better than the open workout i was using with the watch’s built in workout app.
I have only used this one time, I’m not sure how it will work with legs but either way manually logging was also simple. So in my opinion a pretty solid app.
Best Workout App- End of Discussion 3/5
By Mr. Vikk
Update 2: one bug was fixed and replaced with another. Now when I start a freeform workout from my Apple Watch, I can’t stop it once I’m done. The only option to pause. I can’t to power my watch down to stop the program from running. And of course the entire workout was recorded, so frustrating!
Update: I originally ranked this 5 stars but for the past few weeks I keep getting the same error that my logs weren't saved. Even after resetting the app, the same result occurs. I do not see an effective way to seek tech support and therefore must lower this app to 3 starts until this problem is fixed.
This is the Best Workout App for me; End of Discussion. I've been using this app since I got my Apple Watch about a month ago. I've used it twice a day everyday. It has learned my routine and has become more accurate with the rep count. I just open the app on my Apple Watch, start a season and it recognizes the exercise I'm doing and records the reps. It's that easy. You can't go wrong with this app. I tried the other apps but this app beat them by a mile and offered everything I needed for my workouts.
Nice concept, unstable at best on watch 2/5
Very buggy on the watch, which is the main usage for many users I’m sure.
Automatic set tracking is a great idea but it is so buggy that it's unusable and turning it off doesn't work as it continues to run and switch sets automatically. Needs work.
Developer responded, which I appreciate, that "auto-switch set" can be turned off in settings. Of course that doesn't work and I've reported as such to the developer in the past.
Great tracker 4/5
By Johnny B Films
Had issues- But it was the watch- not the app. Great tracker.
Worthless unless you upgrade to premium 1/5
Don’t plan on using this app with your Apple Watch unless you upgrade to premium. Tip to developer - just charge $29 for the app to begin with and don’t waste time luring people in.
So far the coolest app
Must Have App 5/5
By Exercise Chick
I've been using this app for over a year and I absolutely love it and could not workout without it. I've had a few issues with it but my issues were always resolved quickly.
It’s ok but could be much better 2/5
By Mighty Power
For starters voice recognition is really bad, writing it up it’s even worse.
It’s nice that you can go back to the iPhone application and fix the terminology, what I don’t understand is why you have to fix it every single time over and over again, so when you go back to the same exercise it doesn’t recognize it, you need to go back on the phone and fit it again the next time you use it.
I’m still not happy with your software..
Here are a few other things I’m noticing.
If you do an exercise with your left arm and then you do the same exercise with your wife on it doesn’t know that it’s doing the same exercise because of quiet it’s not moving the left arm. For example if you were doing a Curl to press with your left arm maybe the next step would be to ask if you’re going to do the same with the right arm.. not being able to do single sides exercises may be a problem for certain exercises.
It does not track exercises like mountain climbers which are heavy and caloric use but it doesn’t have any arm movement because all of the most movement is in the core and in the legs..
Do you above it’s kind of actually understandable what I don’t understand is how it’s not able to track the difference between military presses and chest presses or neutral grip dumbbell presses vs smith machine press, or regular flat bench flies versus inclined flies, or dumbbell press versus smith machine press, you would think he would because the movement using dumbbells has to be different then the movement as precise as the one from a Bar
This application may be good for beginners that may have no idea of what they’re doing so if they’re following exercises may be OK, but if you’re trying to enter your own exercises I will think again.
Latest update fixed a lot! (Updated review) 4/5
The latest update really fixed a lot of crashes and bugs. The app is looking very promising again!
If activity notifications is on and you complete a goal during a workout, it can still crash the app. So that's worth turning off beforehand. But unlike the last build where it crashed all the time, this version is WAY more stable. Great job on the fixes!
Original 5 star review below:
This app does everything I want it to. It keeps track of my movements, and I can easily log reps and weight. The auto detection learns quickly and is very accurate so far! And the heart rate tracker seems accurate too.
I also mostly use the Apple Watch app to log everything. No crashes so far, AND it updates my activity rings when I finish a workout.
I also love the automatic "rest time" feature! That way I don't have to start a manual timer in between sets.
Great app! Worth going to premium!
AMAZING APP!! 5/5
Best Application I have used thus far!
NO WHERE IT SAYS YOU HAVE TO..... 1/5
NO WHERE IT SAYS YOU HAVE TO pay for free workouts on the new Apple Watch series 3.
Defeats the purpose of having the new Apple Watch series 3. The free works that you can do using the iPhone app, you CANNOT do using the Apple Watch series 3.
It asks you to sign up for a membership while using a free workout. I was told by the developers that it is working as designed. I found that out after getting to the gym and leaving my phone home. Grrrr
The devs are not quite on the nice side...extremely rude.
Not great for iWatch 1/5
I got this app to use with my iWatch but you have to pay a subscription for this. I would pay a one time fee but not a subscription because this app isn’t providing me with anything else.
Amazing app 5/5
I have been looking for wanting to create an all like this for a long long long time. Just amazing and so many possibilities where they can take this. I wish Apple acquires them and make this at the core of Apple Health
Sorry forgot your name of the App 5/5
By Mya Kay Ford.
This app is the best thing in the world!!!❤️👩❤️👩
Very upset that a 10 dollar app now requires a subscription! refund!!
Looks nice to start 2/5
Thought I would download this to give it a try, but in order to use the guided workout option on the Apple Watch, you have to upgrade to a subscription based Premium version. I’m not against paying money for apps, but I only do one time purchases. There should be an option for a one time payment. I don’t see the point in subscribing if all I want to do is use my Apple Watch. I’ll give the free part a shot though.
Very good app for adding my weights to ring 5/5
You can use the preset workout programs. You can make your workout program. It all transfers over to the app when you sync it. Your workouts make or create on your iPhone and then you transfer it to your watch. I read through and to really benefit from what this app and you really need to purchase the premium piece of the app. It’s cheaper to purchase a year for $30 rather than paying for 99 a month which is around $60 here. Just started three days ago with this program you need to get from Milyer with it or First work out whether it was a little challenging. You can go to track your reps on some of the exercises. Having used freestyle yes. With the only problem I’m fine is that it will frequently while I’m setting up work out just shut down on me. That’s very bad. To work around that I have been saving my work out frequently as I making it every time I put a newExercise and I automatically save it after quickly. That way I won’t lose that exercise. I’ll see what I mean. That needs to be corrected. Otherwise my first workout went pretty well. I’ll let you know. I like it a lot so far.
Great tracking App 5/5
Best app I’ve seen so far...!
This app is crap. 1/5
By JJ’s Man
Installed to my Apple Watch. Started my workout. It won’t count any calf raises or count all of my leg presses. Touching the face to try and correct the miscounting just makes it jump to the next set. Really? That’s super dumb. You can’t go back. You can’t fix a counting error. So I’m now on my third set of leg extensions when I haven’t even started the first set. Total aggravating garbage. Not ready for prime time. Deleted 10 minutes into my workout. Good riddance.
No more crazy notes 5/5
Using Gymatic let’s me focus on working out and not keeping copious amounts of notes. I’ve been tracking my workouts in Apple Notes since 2014!
Awesome! 🏋🏽 5/5
An awesome and easy way to keep track of workouts, weight lifting and reps using your Apple Watch.
Great for lifting! 5/5
I've been lifting for over two years and I have yet to see an app that's as great as this. All of the features have helped so much and it's very easy to use. I bought an Apple Watch just to use this app to auto track.
Straightforward and does what it promises! 5/5
I don't need much from a workout tracking app except an efficient interface and some level of customization. This app is perfect for my needs, and the Apple Watch app exceeds my expectation.
Love The App 5/5
This app works great for me. It is the best workout tracker out there.
Good for Personalizing a Program 5/5
By Oliver 4513
If you're running Stronglifts, although it has effective official apps, as soon as you need to modify the default program, it feels restrictive. Gymatic is a better fit for programs that revolve around repeating workouts and progressive loading, but also deviate from the default, or include bodyweight and assistance exercises.Updated regularly and the feature set continues to grow.
The best app for workout log! 5/5
I tried a lot of workout tracking apps and this one has the most clean, awesome design and easy to use interface from all of them. Easy to type your sets and reps and it shows your last workout numbers as you do workout so you can keep track of your progress. The only thing I would do to make it perfect is a calendar where you can log your workouts by color (ex: leg day = red and that shows a monthly view of your routine.
Perfect app! 5/5
Easiest workout tracking app. Lots of space for details too. Easily customizable but also great for quick low setup routines.
Great for workout tracking 5/5
By Kent P. Rogers
Top fitness tracking app for bodybuilding/strength training, especially if you have an Apple Watch.
The beat and most complete 5/5
I use this for my various workouts all week, every week. This is the one to get. Well thought out features and regular updates.
Watch tracking not available in free version 2/5
Pretty disappointing. The automated rep counter was fairly accurate but the overall UX is pretty bad. The worst part is that unless you have Premium, you cannot track workouts on Apple Watch. I started the free trial, did my workout, and immediately cancelled. This is definitely not an app worth paying for.
Yes, download this workout tracker 5/5
This app is worth buying. I used it free for weeks and it was great, but I have really loved the auto tracking
Great app 5/5
I like to create my own programs and this app lets you do that and track the results with my Apple Watch, then show me results through numerous graphs and metrics. Must have for anyone who trains regularly.
Hands down, the best workout tracker. 5/5
Easily the best weight lifting app. The subscriptions are well worth it.
Apple Watch 5/5
Great app for Apple Watch, I never knew auto counting is possible, so cool.
Great way to track work outs 5/5
Definitely worth the price for the full version. Best use of my Apple Watch.
Only workout tracker you need 5/5
Love this app 5/5
Exactly what I need in a workout app. Been using it for months. Great user experience and customer support, super accurate rep counting.
Best Tracking App 5/5
Love It. Keep the improvements coming. Cannot workout without it.
By OK 73401
I've only tracked 4 workouts so far, but this is the best workout/weight lifting tracker I've tried. Exactly what I've been looking for! I think the watch app is the only one of its kind.
Rep counting magical 5/5
By Justin Baker1987
I bought Apple Watch just for this app. Love the rep counting and auto logging, makes my workout tracking so much easier.
Great flexible tracking app, no BS 5/5
By Terry Ervin20
This tracker is simple and easy to use, without a bunch of clutter or ads. Good job devs. The rep counting is revolutionary.
