Gentler Streak wants to bring compassion to your fitness goals. But how does it plan to do that? The Apple Watch app is readying a new unique feature called Go Gentler, which will recommend daily actions based on your workout history. 9to5Mac interviewed Gentler Streak founder Katarina Lotrič about the app’s future, and how watchOS 9 could impact and help users in a gentler future.

Starting with watchOS 9, the upcoming Apple Watch operating system is the biggest update in years. Not only does it end Apple Watch Series 3 support, but fully embraces the bigger screens, revamps the Workout app, and also brings new possibilities to developers.

For Lotrič, Gentler Streak will be able to take advantage of new APIs, such as the WeatherKit and new sleep tracking data.

“We’re really looking forward to WeatherKit, because, in the future, we can make suggestions based on the weather. If it’s raining outside, we won’t recommend an Outdoor Run. We’ll also be adding weather and temperature information after you finish a workout,” she says. “Sleep tracking can be handy. Gentler Streak will be able to understand how well you slept and give you overall suggestions.”

In addition, as we already covered at 9to5Mac, Apple is revamping the Workout app on watchOS 9. Not only does it bring a lot of new data, but it also adds the Heart Rate Zone metric, which is one of the most important features of the Gentler Streak Apple Watch app, but although Apple gives more data, the company doesn’t help interpret it as Lotrič’s app does.
