Top 10 Apple Watch Apps – Streaks
The next excellent Apple Watch app to be featured in this series is Streaks. Streaks is the best habit tracking app for the Apple Watch. The app allows you to set 6 goals that you want to achieve. It has some great presets to give you an idea of what habits to choose. Streak also works seamlessly with Apple Health. However, you can also create your own custom habits as well. When you select or create your goal you then pick the days you want to achieve that habit. When choosing your goal Streaks also has a pleasing color palette to change the apps background color. I also appreciate that Streaks does not attack you with notifications either. You get one unified notification per day that reminds you of all your habits still to complete that day.
Streaks has also done a great job utilizing 3D Touch if you have an iPhone that supports it. By using 3D Touch actions to complete your habits you can improve your efficiency. The Apple Watch app also makes it easy to complete goals. Just tap the app and it brings up all your habits, then press the one you want to mark complete and thats it. Just two button presses from your wrist and you’ve tracked your habit. Streaks is also not lacking in the design department either but don’t just take my word for it. Its award winning design was recognized by Apple at WWDC 2016 with a Apple Design award. The app itself also won Apple’s best app award in 2015.
There are a few things with this app that could considered downsides. It limits you to 6 habits you can track. I don’t really see this as a downside personally though. I think by limiting the amount of habits it allows for greater focus on those habits. Also if you’re on the Android side of things there is no app at all for you.
Streaks is one of the best apps you can get for your iPhone or Apple Watch period. It features good customization options and a top notch award winning design. It motivates you and has some good variations for displaying habit data. Streaks integrates with Apple Health and takes advantage of 3D Touch technology. You can get all this in one app for under $4.
