Fitbit App/Dashboard Review

Recently I did a review on the Fitbit Surge and I thought it would be a good idea to review the app as well since it is where you can actually see the data that is collected by your Fitbit.

The Fitbit app is available on IOS and Android and if you don’t own a smartphone, there is also a desktop dashboard that you can install and use.

Once your Fitbit has synced with the app or dashboard, it easily lets you see the all of the stats that are available in an easy to read format. You can also track calories eaten by imputing the food that you’ve eaten and you can track how much water you have to drink to meet your daily goals.

For the goals you can either create them yourself or use the default goals that the app provides you. You can also connect with other Fitbit users and add them as friends to easily share results among each other. The Fitbit app also easily syncs with other fitness apps that you have on your phone that you’ve already been using. I personally use My Fitness Pal to track my food and that is then connect to my Fitbit app and they work together.

I haven’t found any flaws with the app at all and I highly recommended it. It works very well with the Fitbit devices (as it should).

Hercules Workout Log & Tracker Review

So I got a message a couple of days ago by the creator of the Hercules Workout Log & Tracker app asking me to review it which I was very interested in doing but unfortunatly, It’s an Android only app and I only have IOS so instead I’m going to give you the details and the link to it on the Google Play Store and you guys can give it a try free for 7 days before you decide if you want to buy it or not. According to their website, an IOS version is in the works, it’s just not ready yet.
