Sweatcoin – Sweat for Coin

There’s a reason this app is currently at in the top 5 of the App Store Fitness charts! It pretty much does what it says on the tin: pays you to work out. You can link Sweatcoin up to your Apple Watch and track your steps and calories burnt as you go about your daily workouts. Then, you’ll be rewarded in the Sweatcoin currency for the time you’re active.
