    I go to a gym and use a personal trainer twice weekly, and...unfortunately often forget to start my Apple Watch's Exercise App. Is there a Reminder app or something that would be triggered by location, so when I get to the gym, a reminder would pop up on iPhone and Apple Watch?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean an app other than the native Reminders app w/ location based alerts?

    Darn, didn't know you can do that. That will work to remind me, alright. Do you know if it's possible to start the exercise app with this reminder, or to start the app based on location? That way, it would start (and I assume stop) when I arrive and leave.

    Thanks!

    I don't think there's any app that will launch/start an app based on location. At least none that I know of.

    You could try "remind me about this when I get to XYZ" when you have the exercise app open. You might well be able to trigger it directly via that.
