For awhile now I’ve been seeing images of a weight tracking app on an Apple Watch over Instagram, and I was immediately drawn to it because of its subtle colours and simplicity.

For anyone who’s been reading our articles for awhile will know that as much as I like bright colours I love simplistic things more, something that does the job it says it’s going to do without being all in your face.

Obtain ticks all these boxes for me, I’ve been tracking my weight on and off for 8 years and it’s always fluctuated drastically in that time, currently I use about three or four apps to track my weight and track my fitness mainly because I used to be in the FitBit ecosystem before Apple released the Apple Watch and my Fitbit weighing scale doesn’t tie directly to Apple’s health app and so I have to use a third party app as the middle man.

Now the developer of obtain states that he has been developing lOS apps for the last 8+ years and has struggled with weight all his life and so he built an app as a way to help motivate him to stay on track. This grabbed my attention more because as someone who works 13 hour shifts plus runs a blog and has a family finding time for staying healthy.

I reached out to the developer who kept me updated as to when the watch app was ready and I’ve had it installed for a few days now, today was the first time I used the app on my watch to update my weight and it was hassle free and quicker than opening all the apps I normally have to use to update the health app.

I was able to get my body measurements all done in a few seconds then I could get on with my day. The app is free to download from the AppStore and an in-app purchase option of 99p for the pro model which gives you the following features:
