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.

You can also listen to podcasts during your workout played directly from your Apple Watch. Either transfer podcast files over to your Apple Watch before you head out or if you have a Series 3 LTE Apple Watch with cellular service you can stream the episodes right to your Apple Watch.

• 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.

What's New

Version 2.0.3

Just a quick clean-up update. The last one accidentally caused the workout display screen to sometimes not reset to your workout metrics when you manually locked the Apple Watch app. Sorry about that!

"Start Outdoor Walking workout in Workouts++."

Really good bug fix update


This was a good bug fix update. My review below stays the same but no more bugs. I'm still really loving this app. It's a great tool for run training.

V1 review: Worthy of the ++ designation

Forget flashy design and marketing. The developer understands runners and training. This app is a cut above the stock workouts app and offers functionality that is missing from the big name running apps.

The ability to customize the interface is nice, but haptic feedback and dynamic color changes for run metrics put it over the top! I have wanted an app that allowed for speed zone and heart rate zone training on the watch. I haven't been this excited about an app in quite some time. Now my AppleWatch is a real training tool!

There are some minor interface bugs and glitches. You can setup multiple interfaces with the same name. If you do the iPhone app will not maintain a consistent sort order and the watch interface will flicker on launch. I assume these will be fixed in future versions. There are no major bugs. This is a great app

I have two hopes for a future release. 1) Allow for more zones on the pace and heart rate sliders. 2) Add a metric for cadence.

Disappointed that the route tracking bug has not been fixed. 6 stars -> 3 stars


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. I haven’t had time to give a complete test yet so I hope the bug that was causing data loss that surfaced in the last month is fixed. It has!

Now that I have had a few days I wish I could give it 6 stars. You can export the gps data as a gpx file. Fantastic. This is way to good to be a free app.

After several weeks of using the app I still love it but it does have a flakey bug. More often than not it fails to save the location data. Sometime later it seems to realize that it hasn’t been saved and will offer to resave. Sometimes the location data is saved to the phone but not always. Not a big deal to me now. However, it will be come the summer backpacking season.

This “bug” seems to be related to having more than 1 watch paired. By reordering the data sources in the health app so that the watch I use for workouts++ is the topmost device, routes are now displayed again. 5 stars unless route tracking fails again.

Unfortunately the above fix was just temporary. I am sure hoping this gets fixed some time soon.

So glad you're loving the update! Thanks for the awesome review.
