One of the closest rival apps for Watchletic charges 5x more per month for very similar functionality.

I guess there's room to grow, MRR-wise. ๐Ÿ’ธ

I'd like to support import of more third-party services for Watchletic.

But most take aaages to develop a public api!

I've reverse engineered one of them. Should I implement it?

Almost every support mail I get for Watchletic starts with "Thank you for creating an awesome app..."

Obviously feels great but not used to getting so much praise when getting bug reports.

Is this feeling impostor syndrome? ๐Ÿ˜…

Wohoo, finally reached three digits of paid subscribers for Watchletic!

Working on FIT file export for Watchletic.

Not a strictly requested feature but will hopefully give even more data to TrainingPeaks allowing me to stay ahead of the curve of any potential competitors.

I'm sure my users will love it!

In about 2.5 weeks I'll ski for something like 8-9 hours. Will be the ultimate test for Watchletic if it works for that long!

Currently away on ski holiday so not a lot of marketing going on, just opening App Store Connect every day hoping the subscriptions have continued rising ๐Ÿ˜…

Had my first MINUS day yesterday after 2 months of gaining paid subscribers. (-1) ๐Ÿ˜ข

I'm starting to question EVERYTHING! ๐Ÿค”

How do you handle this feeling for your startup?

Watchletic is a great FREE app but currently sees 12% conversion rate to premium subscription!

I think it's due to marketing mostly towards people where the premium subscription offer gives them the most value.

Really motivating!

Got a couple of bug reports for Watchletic but this time the issue was that they didn't have the latest version on their Apple Watch.

Love it when "bugs" can be solved that easily, with no need to code!

My app got mentioned on Instagram by a Spanish account with 17.4K followers.

Let's goooooo! ๐Ÿ˜โ˜€๏ธ

@dev_bre I don't think it's that important. Some hashtags I like to search for from time to time though, serving as good aggregators, like #buildinpublic

But I think generally people don't search for hashtags anymore.
I'm a runner creating a running app but since 5 months have had an injured foot ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

So I've had to get into other endurance sports (like cycling and xc skiing)

Which gave me motivation to build that into the app making it even more valuable ๐Ÿ’ช

An awesome part of building Watchletic is learning so much of fitness by getting feedback and hearing how people are using it.

Inspiring! ๐Ÿ’ช

Woah, last few days have bucked the monthly subscription trend for Watchletic!

Instead of 1 per day I've seen 2, 2, 3 and yesterday SEVEN new subscribers taking the total up to 51 currently. ๐ŸŽ‰

In recent days I've gotten requests for swimming support in Watchletic from multiple people.

I kind of want to turn Watchletic into triathlon compatible anyway, now that I've already got running and cycling.

Time to build!

Colleague overheard me talking about Bluetooth cycling power meters and how expensive they are.

And he just happened to have some pedals I could borrow!

Now it's time to experiment, see what data I get, and try to implement in Watchletic! ๐ŸŽ‰

Created a TikTok for @watchletic with the username @watchletic.

Gonna try to start growing there, know very little right now but follow me as I learn the ropes if you'd like!

Trying out image sharing for workouts created with Watchletic.

This is from skiing yesterday where I live.

What do you think? Any design tips? ๐Ÿค”
