Apple has revealed its annual App Store award winning games and apps. The top Apple Watch app is Gentler Streak, a fitness app with a difference.

“It always puts your well-being first,” is how developer Gentler Stories describes the specific tilt of this app.

Features made with this in mind include Gentler Streak’s status tag, which lets you flag when you are injured or ill, and a focus on proper rest as well as fitness progress.

Gentler Streak is free to download and use, but there is a paid subscription for those who want its more advanced features. And these are desirable if you want to get to the root of what the app is all about.

Paid-for features include Gentler Streak’s daily suggested workouts, the 10-day activity path and its visual representation of workout load, and those sickness and illness statuses already mentioned.

More than 100 workout types are in the app too, so you can log things like household chores as well as runs and bike rides.

While what Gentler Streak does technically is similar to that of a fairly hardcore fitness app, including mapping of run routes and algorithmic calculation of your readiness for exercise, its presentation is unusual.

The “workout and fitness tracker for humans” line Gentler Stories uses is a little overbaked, but there’s real value in a workout tracking app made specifically for folks who might feel alienated by the big names.

Among the other App Store award winners are “life without filters” social network iPhone app BeReal and iPhone game Apex Legends.
