When Under Armour released a new, free fitness app, Record, last January, which uses IBM Watson to send you personalised fitness tips, I was pretty excited about it.
Under Armour owns some of my favourite fitness tracking apps, especially MyFitnessPal.
I use MyFitnessPal to track my diet. That means I use it to verify that half of the time I’m eating fewer calories than I’m burning.
MyFitnessPal syncs with all the wearable fitness devices on the market and passes the data to the Record service. Record takes all the info from millions of users and compares how you are doing to other people like you.
Before I started using Record, for few months, I carefully logged all of my food and workouts in MyFitnessPal to give Record plenty of data about me. You don’t have to do that. I just wanted to.
For the past month I’ve been using Record daily to log stuff.
And now, I get a daily “insight” about myself from IBM Watson. Some of them are hilarious. Some of them are baffling. And a few of them are useful.
