Workouts++ App

Workouts++ lets you completely customize your Apple Watch workouts to display whatever fitness data you'd like — from a 6 metric display packed with info to a focused single metric display. For each metric you can setup conditional coloring and haptic alerts to help keep you in the zone. You can even display graphs of your performance to help you understand how well your workout is going. You can view detailed statistics for all of your past workouts (whether you've collected them in Workouts++ or not). This includes summary statistics as well as graphs showing available minute-by-minute performance statistics. Your lifetime stats are also summarized to give you a better idea of what your past performance looks like and how/when you typically workout. Notes: • Workouts++ requires an Apple Watch to collect the data it displays • Workouts++ integrates with the Health App on your iPhone to retrieve the data it displays. It will request permission to access the relevant data types associated with a workout. • Streaming podcasts requires an Series 3 LTE Apple Watch and active cellular service.

Workouts++ app reviews

  • Cannot delete or stop a workout? 1/5

    By mehbadmusic
    I have a few accidental 24 hr workouts because I forgot to stop the workout. Skews stats. A “feature” so basic should exist or easy to find. Another workout became stuck with over 600 hrs. App crashes when I try to stop it. One star. Deleted.
  • Great app, but started crashing end of 2019 2/5

    By Sad_zz5559
    Great app when it works. Not it gets stuck in the countdown, crashes and restarts on Apple Watch. The built on workout app works correctly. Would use again once ios or this app is fixed.
  • Lots of potential 3/5

    By jsnhgl
    I think this app has a lot of potential. The sliders to set haptic feedback for workout duration, heart rate, etc do not work. They are garbage. For that reason, I’m asking Apple for a refund.
  • Bpm not working 1/5

    By wtf7654321
    Used to be my favorite. Complete trash now. Please fix.
  • Broken BPM 1/5

    By grsdli
    Used to be a great app, my fave for cardio tracking. With Apple watch 6, BPM doesn’t display most of the time, and this defect was reported by others as well as early as Sept 2019. No fixes offered, its useless without this function.
  • It was very good until recently 2/5

    By cgtnitdfetbnktr
    But after i got apple watch 5 , its is acting completely crazy with the swimming workout
  • Good; but not some aspects missing. 2/5

    By BabyJordan3
    It’s a good app to have during workouts. But; my BPM doesn’t work during the workout; so I cannot see my BPM/HR during the workout; but it appears on my phone after I ended the workout. Everything else, so far works good. I tried to uninstall/reinstall and change the placement of the reading, but nothing seemed to work. Hopefully I can get some assistance or there’s an update pending.
  • It used to work ... 1/5

    By EZ runner
    Now only partially functional as it has stopped reporting heart rate information. Most recent update broke more than it fixed. I’m hard pressed to rate it higher than one star.
  • Sporadic performance 2/5

    By drewbigsky
    I like this app ... when it works. I used it for several months but recently it just won’t start. The icon spins, big “1” appears, and then nothing. I’ve re-installed the app, turned it on and off on watch, rebooted watch multiple times. Sorry to have to say goodbye.
  • Another Glich in the app. 1/5

    By anajarian
    If you goto configure a new workout choice it crashes. Count downs from 1 and then will loop and goto the home screen on the watch. Annoyed that it has been this way for 3-4 months now without a new fix. I paid for that app and now i can only use the “other” setting for all workouts. Afraid if i choose something else i will have to uninstall and reinstall the app for it to “work” again.
  • I love the app but..... 2/5

    By Soupn2
    This app was what I was looking for. The ability to set up interface quadrants to view multiple metrics. I especially loved that I could set a lower and upper limit so I could work in a zone. Here is where the low ratings come in. The sliders just don’t work. I try to set the upper limit and when I press the slider it just jumps to a random spot on the slider. I try to slide it back and the focus will jump to a random quadrant. For example I am on the bpm value (dotted line around the BPM value). I touch a slider the dotted box will just jump back to the mileage. I switch to the lower slider and the same thing happens. It’s frustrating!!!! Finally gave up and went for a run. The BPM quadrant only showed my heart rate once out of 3 runs. Just would not come up. This is the app I was looking for and would definitely up my rating if I could get it to work like the demo video.
  • Heart rate gone 3/5

    By AlitotheG
    I can no longer see HR on any workout. Please fix!
  • Doesn't show heart rate 2/5

    By Laina.Caelan
    It used to show a heart rate while working out. The app is enabled in my health app privacy settings. Yet the app says it can't read the data. Please fix!
  • Doesn’t get along iOS 2/5

    By Anonmom
    Doesn’t play nice with latest ios update. No longer works with health app and gps to generate a map of your route. Really great to make this discovery at the end of a recent 10k.
  • Please fix Heart Rate issue! 3/5

    By elaine623
    I love this app, but since the recent update, there is a major issue with the heart rate monitor. Please fix this!!!
  • Used to be great! 2/5

    By Workouts++
    I’ve used this app for a year every day and loved it. However the app stopped reading my heart rate about 2 months ago and I haven’t been able to fix it. I’ve tried deleting, downloading again, recalibrating, and no luck. Hopefully this gets fixed!
  • Crashes and goes into crash-restart loop 1/5

    By E#L#
    On the watch it’s been broken since the most recent update. The app crashes and goes into crash-restart loop. Before that update happened the app had lost control of the heart rate sensor. So it’s been a while since I’ve been able to use the app. The developer didn’t respond to an inquiry. It feels like the app is abandoned now.
  • Doesn’t Display BPM 3/5

    By mkesubway
    Great app until the update when the BPM display broke. Still records the data, just won’t display it. Please fix.
  • App is broken again 1/5

    By Hotnts
    I’ve reached out to the developer several times through email and the app. Since the watch 6.0 update the watch app (the main reason I bought this app) just goes into a reboot loop. It does not function with the Apple Watch 4.
  • App doesn’t work with latest Apple Watch OS 1/5

    By DaveSwimFit
    App restarts, no longer tracks workouts prior to release.
  • Crashes 1/5

    By WhiteArson
    Ever since the most recent update, the app starts to countdown then does this weird looping crash at 1 second. Only way to stop it is to hard restart my watch.
  • Love, but there’s a new bug 2/5

    By tsatx
    I may need to find a new app. This one has always been super easy to track workouts and use it with my watch. It would be 5 stars, however something happened recently and my heart rate no longer appears on my watch during a workout. Not sure why. The HR is working and when I look at the app after the workout it shows me the graph. Please fix!!

    By Robert F......
    This app is horrendous. Used it for a run a few times and there are constant issues. Did not download the maps a few times and then realized when running is paused, it records distance and only pauses the time. I demand a refund!
  • Great app until this last release 4/5

    By Llvisconti
    This is my favorite watch app for recording my workouts but after this latest release it's picking up but not displaying my HR. I have to restart my watch to get it to work, then it works a few days and stops again. The built in workouts displays just fine but it doesn't show the same level of detail. I'm hoping this issue gets fixed soon.
  • Need update!! 1/5

    By iouvt
    With the latest update to iOS on the iPhone and watch, the app is no longer reading health data from the heart rate monitor even if it is enabled. This is on the series 3 sport watch and the old workouts app still catches my heart rate.
  • BPM lost 1/5

    By hpereira
    Since last update, for BPM to work I have to restart my iWatch and iPhone. 😡. Please fix. Otherwise, excellent workout tracker.
  • App has gotten buggy 2/5

    By crisnoh
    Used to love this app but bugginess makes it SO frustrating. Doesn’t display bpm anymore. Screen goes blank when switching between views. Frequently slow to respond when ending workouts or closing menus.
  • Worked fine until watch 6 version 4/5

    By firewallbill
    I really like this app for monitoring my statistics while working out. I give it 4 stars - subtracting one for errors in recording heart rate after the new watch OS 6. The display on the watch no longer shows BPM. Up until the update for 6 it did fine. Curiously the status show in the phone app but not on the watch.
  • No HR displayed after update to ios13 2/5

    By FeMan
    I have loved this app for a long time but after upgrading to ios13 and then 13.1, the app on the Apple Watch no longer is displaying the heart rate. This is a major bug and needs an fix quickly! I tried contacting the developer through the app but no response. I will change my rating once it is fixed and working because basically in its current state it is of no use.
  • Great app needs updated with iOS 13 4/5

    By TheRiot93
    Great application! Love it, just as mentioned in the previous review, heart rate does not seem to display after updating to the latest iOS! Looking forward to an update to continue using this application!
  • Good, but... 3/5

    By TimJob
    No luck with the in-app email link so trying again here. Segment data is lost - example: cross training. There is some data of very limited utility in the stats page. Calories per minute is useless. I’d rather see segment (round) summary info. Round 1, total time, total calories, avg heart rate....round 2, etc. User defined stats would be perfect.
  • Missing a couple things... 3/5

    By Overrambunctious
    I mainly got this app because the standard Apple Watch workout app was missing a couple of things. I hike A LOT. But with this app, it doesn’t track your hiking distance? I don’t understand why not. It’s a MAJOR flaw that I hope gets fixed (@ developers!!) soon because I don’t want to go back to just using the workout app. It even tracks the distance for an indoor run and outdoor walking. Why is distance not an option for hiking?? Other than that, I really like this app. It works great, doesn’t use a whole lot of battery and is almost 100% customizable which I love. I definitely recommend it but for that one MAJOR issue.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Ted*
    Works as it should. I love it.
  • Must-have 5/5

    By Ehler4
    I don’t do many of the stock Activity workouts, so being able to customize what Workouts++ has on the default screen is a great boon. The audio controls in the app are great as well. It’s one of very few apps that get a complication on one of my main watch faces.
  • Fading (5 -> 2 stars) 2/5

    By cabruen
    I have used this app on the hone and watch for at least 2 years. I loved it, especially the customization of the workout. I have become disappointed with it over the last months as I realize its limitations. Workouts recorded with Workouts++ do not count toward the Activity app workout counter (for example the 7/7 workout week. The workouts dont count towards activity records. Please keep up the development.
  • Love it for what it does but wish It had more customization! 3/5

    By MaciTaki
    Well of course I used this app when I work out… I also use my watch to track my heart rate while I meditate. And that goes in the mindfulness category to be effectively tracked in the Apple health app. This app only counts as activity. So my activity is a little bit out of balance because a lo of it’s actually mindfulness. It would be great if you could make a category we could change the ‘workout’ to mindfulness instead of just activity. Even yoga could be mindfulness or activity.
  • Almost perfect 4/5

    By DSButantes
    Love that this is customizable. The screens are great. If I could customize my heart rate zones it would be perfect.
  • Not accurate at all 1/5

    By texan0772
    I went on a walk using this app to track it and it said that I traveled almost 30 miles in 20 minutes. Not sure if there is a way to fix this. How has this app gotten so many good reviews? If the app makers see this please try to fix it.
  • Used to love it 2/5

    By Esseritunes
    Now it no longer displays on my Apple Watch!!
  • Fantastic app with a fatal flaw 3/5

    By Roger39
    I don’t know if the latest update has fixed the problem I describe below. I am now bothered my an even worst problem. My most important use for this app would be the hiking workout. Unbelievably the app does not display distance traveled. I do want to be able to use this app but it sure does not seem that making it great (good) is a priority to the developer. As much as I love this app I have had to stop using it. It sometimes fails to display (record?) route data. A deal killer for me. I stand by my review below if only ... One of my favorite apps just got amazingly better. So happy that elevation is an option. And the data display on the phone is fantastic. After the last update it's even better. I wish I could give it 6 stars. With elevation as a display option and the ability to export the gps data as a gpx file it is great for hiking/backpacking. . One feature request. On outdoor walk/run after completing the activity display total elevation gain (as Apple's app does). This is way to good to be a free app.
  • Disappeared from watch 2/5

    By ?????>?????
    I like this app but seems to have disappeared from my Apple Watch.
  • Can’t get it back on my iwatch 1/5

    By LaurinAlesi
    Since this upgrade, it’s disappeared from my iwatch and I can’t get it back
  • Update the app! 1/5

    By CrowdedShorts
    I know you’re active with updating other apps (Pedometer which who really uses??). When new iOS came out this app took a dive. Multiple times it would stop recording the work out. It stopped integrating with Apples’ activity tracking. I used to love this app because I could customize what I’m seeing for visual cues on how my workout is going. Now I’m stuck with using Apple’s workout app which is terrible. Don’t download this until it’s been updated (last update was 8 months ago). IF and big IF to the developer, if you do update it, it would be great if you could integrate music control into it. If I want to skip a song I would have to back out and then go back in.
  • Excellent alternative to Watch’s built-in app 5/5

    By HugoRabson
    I’ve been using various gadgets since 2007 to help me maintain my desired weight and level of fitness. I took a Polar watch and chest strap to Iraq; I’ve tried a Garmin and a Fitbit; I tried a WiThings whatever-it’s-called. Apple Watch has worked the best for me, if used in conjunction with Workouts++. The app is a joy to use. The user interface is friendly, the feedback is excellent, and the power drain is tolerable. I couldn’t ask for more.
  • Great but 5/5

    By ifoudmyfitbit
    Please support auto pause
  • GPS data doesn’t transfer from watch 2/5

    By Beware Phog
    I have a Series 3 watch with LTE. I run without a phone. I alternate between the watch app and this one. 95% of the time the Apple Watch sends over gps data to map. Workout does it like 75% if the time. In fact, lately the apple app works all the time after some initial issues. I’ve had the watch three months. I would use one one day and the other on the next day and Apple works, workout does not. Just not consistent and reliable to use.
  • Non-functional 1/5

    By Curt67
    Gave it a one star review because data doesn’t integrate with Apple’s activity app. Skip this one until the developer figures this out.
  • Updated iOS and app is on the fritz 2/5

    By ajohnston1988
    Down to 2 from 4/4.5. 2 straight interval training workouts that have stopped, started and incorrectly alerted me during the workout. Neither workout was saved or charted. App may not be fully compatible with the new watch and iOS updates.
  • Buggy update needs some fixes 4/5

    By swimcav
    This update disappointed me. I use this app to track my swimming workouts. Now I have to choose between 2 rotary fields and the app does not remember the last choice . Later edit : after accessing the configure tab on iPhone the workout list on the watch app updated itself to the old list . I also noticed that the app will not record a 2 lap swim , also the lap counter is constantly 2 laps behind ( but it records the distance correctly after finishing the workout ). Also the app does not display the last workout track ( I saw this both for biking and for outdoor swimming ) . The track magically appears after you do another workout . I know the app is free but I hope you get to iron out the bugs because the app is really nice .
