I am a fitness guy and wellness data geek. The Apple Watch’s health and wellness features were not a high priority for me when I bought my AW, but it was hoping that it could replace some of what I am doing with a Fitbit zip and Garmin 910XT. It cannot. Watch OS2 may help bridge some of the gaps, but that is a huge unknown at the moment. Maybe some of the beta testers can chime in. If you are considering an Apple Watch with an emphasis on its fitness and activity tracking features, you may want to investigate further. The workout and activity apps are more novelty toys than useful from a holistic wellness perspective. These are a few of the shortcomings I have found, compared to most other fitness tracking and exercise device and software ecosystems. You cannot manually enter a workout in the activity app. This is a big deal to me. There are times when you cannot use or do not want to use the AW (like swimming, impact sports, mowing the lawn, etc.) and times when you just forget the watch. With other trackers, you simply manually enter an activity. That is impossible with the AW. No social component. All other fitness trackers I have seen have web and phone apps that let you friend people and compete against step and other goals. This has been state of market for 5 years. You cannot record food consumption to manage wellness holistically. I use Fitbit to help me record food and balance that against caloric burn when I am trying to lose weight or in intense training. The AW has no mechanism to do this. No web interface that lets users manage and analyze data easier and more thoroughly. Every other fitness tracker tool has a web UI that presents information in ways not possible on a phone screen. No way for other apps to feed data into activity/workout/health. Other tools allow you to import food consumption and workout data from other sources. AW cannot. For example, my Garmin workouts automatically feed into Fitbit. No way to share data with other aggregator apps, like Strava or Training Peaks. This is kind of important for people who use leading web apps to manage health and fitness. Most other tools do this. Workout does not show discrete data down to splits within an activity. As a result, you cannot use it for performance analysis and improvement. (This is a low priority from a fitness tracker device point of view, but it would be nice to have.) The whole Apple Watch activity, fitness, wellness, and health package seems immature and incomplete. Many of the features above have been around for years in other products, so appears as if Apple either rushed the current software to market or they totally ignored products already in the market. I am hopeful that wOS2 will bridge some of the gaps above. Maybe it comes through better 3rd party apps, but then those run the risk of simply abandoning the Apple activity ecosystem because it does not offer a robust enough foundation to support a complete solution.
