So In Garmin Connect there is

Body Battery
Stress
Health Snapshot
Morning Report
Sleep Score
HRV Status
Training Load

Are there any Apple Watch apps that would do any of this?

Athlytic is a solid 3rd party app, but it still pales in comparison vs Garmin.

I've had it and been subscribed a couple of times, but I'm still not fully convinced it's worth it.

If I wake up early and let the dog out and go back to sleep, it doesn't count the last part of my sleep (even though AutoSleep does) and if I go for a solid 25K run with speed work, it sometimes still think I should run more to meet the Exertion levels - and other times a full day of recovery doesn't move the needle too much :(

The problem with many of these apps, is that they do a pretty poor job explaining why and how they measure and change. If they made it even more clear, I could adapt and change my recovery to benefit even more - not to please an app, but to learn more and develop as an athlete.
