    I'm searching for something very simple..

    An iOS / Apple Watch app that can daily track my weight progress. Very plain and simple, every evening before bed, I step on the scale in my bathroom with my iPhone in hand and I manually add my weight to the Apple Health app. This isn't a very easy and pleasant workflow because I have to tap 10 times to get my weight in my phone daily.

    It would/could be so much better if I could just add my weight through an iOS widget or even better glances on my Apple Watch. One tap/swipe - add value - press OK.

    Most important feature.. It really needs Apple Health support and it has to be lean, plain and simple. None complicated apps that can also tell the weight of my soon to be born daughter by measuring the position of the moon against the stars.

    I hope someone knows an app like that.. There are a few of those type of apps when it comes to tracking your daily water intake.
    For weight.. ??

    Well, I use the Withings wireless scale (smart body analyzer now). It works with Apple Health but does not require I enter anything on my iPhone. My weight is uploaded automatically.

    Hmm, I'm not really comfy about buying a new 99,- scale with WiFi and whatnot..

    I think I'm going to contact some app-developers out there that have developed apps in similar fields.

    The person that has created WaterMinder for example. This app does everything I need to keep track of my water intake during the day, it also writes the data into Apple Health. I can't see why it would be a months of work to pick up the already created code of WaterMinder and change it into a 'WeightMinder' app with the same options only instead go adding water volumes your going to add weight numbers.

    After so many years of iOS success I still can't believe how much opportunity there is for good/solid apps.
