SmartGym

Launch Details

Recap

Two years ago I launched SmartGym. My goal was simple. Make an easy to use, gorgeous and simple gym app, that had an amazing Apple Watch app. After all, to me, Apple Watch is by far the best gym companion.

What's new on SmartGym 3?

iPad App

With SmartGym 3 we're introducing a beautiful new iPad app that users can take advantage of its larger screen to manage and keep track of all their data. All data is stored in our brand new cloud service (described below) and automatically synced across all their devices.

Cloud Service

In order to build everything we wanted to build on SmartGym 3, we needed to create our own cloud service. Users can now have all their data instantly backed up and automatically synced across all their devices. This makes the iPad app extremely awesome to use. One can setup all their routines on the iPad and hit the gym just with their Apple Watch and everything will be automatically synced.

Personal Trainer features

This is the killer new feature of SmartGym 3. Support for Personal Trainers. Actually, not only "support for Personal Trainers", but pretty much a whole new app. When a Personal Trainer creates an account, SmartGym automatically updates its UI to accommodate all the new features.

Improved Apple Watch app

The beauty of an Apple Watch app is being able to quickly get all the information that you need with just one tap or two. So we’ve added some cool new features to make the entire experience a lot better and easier.

New Apple Watch app for Personal Trainers

As I said in the beginning, I see the Apple Watch as being by far the best device to take with you to the Gym. This also holds true for Personal Trainers. Many Trainers when with their students, use some kind of watch to keep track of their students' resting timer. But they also use another kind of device (a phone or tablet) to keep track of their routines. With SmartGym, they don't need that anymore. They can use just the Apple Watch.

Siri Shortcuts

SmartGym implements many different Siri Shortcuts. Users can create shortcuts to open specific routines, go to their History or Measures page and a lot more.

New Business Model

For all that to work, we had to come up with a new business model for SmartGym. So starting with this new release, SmartGym will become a free app + IAP and Subscriptions.
