Meet the Slovenian fitness tracker that won Apple Watch’s App of the Year award

Below the Winners Apple Store Awards 2022, Gentler Streak emerged as the Apple Watch App of the Year. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, the app – designed for use with iPhone and Apple Watch – is an exercise and fitness tracker with a twist: a self-compassionate approach to exercise.

Softer Stripe is the first product from Gentler Stories, a Slovenia-based mobile app studio specializing in sustainable lifestyle solutions. The female-led company was founded in February 2021 by three Apple Entrepreneur Camp alumni and an alumnus of Y Combinator, a startup accelerator.

The app launched in September 2021, and although it’s been out for a little over a year, it’s steadily gaining popularity.

Essentially, Gentler Streak is a fitness app, meaning it helps users track exercise activities, distance, heart rate zones, and activity stats, among other things.

But what’s really unique about it is the gentler approach that also focuses on recovery time.
