Gentler Streak, the popular Apple Watch app designed to help users achieve their fitness goals, was updated this week with some important new features. The app now has an option to manually add untracked workouts, along with Spanish language support and more.
What’s new in Gentler Streak 2.7
Version 2.7 of Gentler Streak has a new “Add Workout Manually” feature which, as the name suggests, allows users to record a workout they’ve done without wearing their Apple Watch. You can manually add data such as workout type, duration, intensity, and distance. Manually added data is displayed on the user’s activity path along with tracked workouts.
“Contact sports, dead battery, watch left at home, … no longer pose an issue for Activity Path accuracy, since you can add the missed workout by hand,” the app description reads.
Another new feature in Gentler Streak with the 2.7 update is “Estimating Workout Intensity”. As detailed by the developers, this feature is based on the RPE (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale, which measures the intensity of your body’s exertion during a workout.
Let your efforts be reflected in the activity path using RPE (Rated Perceived Exertion). RPE is a scale from 0 (No Effort) to 10 (Maximum Effort), on which you indicate how easy/difficult the training seemed to you. To provide context for your self-assessment, the RPE scale shows your typical range of exertion for all types of training you have previously logged.
And, to make the app accessible to even more people, Gentler Streak now fully supports the Spanish language – in addition to English. Other features added in the update include new widgets for the iPhone lock and home screen, and new Apple Watch complications.
