Mac Power Users 467: Fitness Apps & Tech


Not sure you can call three selected articales to demonstrate a point- the science. If hey ho. Most people don’t drink enough water we don’t hydrate and it’s not only when you are thirsty. Either way what I do agree with you on is that we don’t need tech to track it. I can’t imagine anything worse than a $150 smart bottle that tells you how many time you have filled it up and drank from it. Crazy.

Drink water all day. Then you don’t need an app to track



I’ve been using Pillow since before getting an apple watch. I’ve noticed that it doesn’t automatically load my sleep data in its system unless I open it in the morning. If I don’t the data is there but I have to click on the data in the app’s calendar for it to load. I was having so much of an issue that I reinstalled the app. Even though I had selected to sync with iCloud it appears that it hasn’t actually synced. The data is in health kit but now my charts are all screwed up. I’ll have to manually go back and select each date for the past 2 years for the app to get my sleep data loaded back into the app. Its gotten to the point where I’ve stopped sleep tracking because its become such a piece of frustration.



For those that use MFP for calorie tracking I’ve been dealing with a bug lately where every day or two the thing logs me out and I have to log back in? As someone that’s been using this app for 7+ years its really aggravating that it suddenly becomes a barrier for me to actually want to use the thing. Luckily it has 1Password integration so putting my login in isn’t that much of a hassle at all.
