Goodbye Apple Watch ๐Ÿ‘‹

โ€œOver the course of the last quarter we've seen an incredible shift in the world due to COVID-19, people are looking for new avenues to stay active while at-home.โ€ - Dilan Shah co-founder and Chief Product Officer at YUR

YUR is a VR fitness tracking tool that just rolled out a โ€œvirtual watch.โ€ How it works: YUR lets you track fitness metrics (heart rate, daily calories, squat count, etc.) with any wearable heart rate monitor while you play VR games that keep you in shape. Note: It only works with Oculus Quest right now.ย 

The virtual watch interface is definitely novel and might be a fun way to enhance your at-home workouts. To date, YUR reports that over 5.1 million workouts have been logged on their system by over 60,000 users.

Some early reviews from the PH community:

โ€œThe YUR app is amazing to stay motivated. Amazing to see it in this format! Guess I wonโ€™t need an Apple Watch soon.โ€ - Naomi

โ€œNow I can keep track of my fitness metrics without wearing any physical watch. The future is here.โ€ - Robin

โ€œThis product will change the way VR is used!โ€ - Sahin
