Competition is a motivational tool that’s been used for centuries. People compete in games, among their peers and with themselves. The need to compete isn’t something new.
The desire to join some type of competition stems from the natural desire to win or achieve something. It also comes from the need to push beyond previous limits to improve life or physical performance.

And the competitive spirit urges people to try harder. That’s why a weight-loss tool that’s built around a competitive foundation is one that’s popular and in high demand. Take Apple Watch’s competition that’s a challenging and competitive way to get rid of unwanted pounds.
It can be turned into a specific game of weight loss that taps into that inborn desire to win. Even if you’re someone who’s struggled to lose weight in the past because your desire or motivation dwindled, this could help you.
It works by having you engage with another person who has the Apple Watch in a competition to see who the winner will be. It’s this competition that can help drive your determination and keep you from giving up.
You can take part in more than one competition at once, but it’s a one on one player competition rather than a group thing.
It’s easy to use and convenient, too. You won’t be dealing with the negative kind of talk like you get with some weight loss apps.
This app focuses on losing weight and getting in shape in a friendly, competitive way. The competitions are a week in length and the goal of the game is to try to see who can lose the most for that week.
When you decide that you want to take part in the contest, you check out what your friends are doing in the app and ask them to join you in a week-long challenge to see who the winner will be.
It works because you each motivate the other when you see how well the other person is doing. As you engage in the competition, you fill your rings and gain points. You get points for things like exercise, moving, standing, etc.
Because you’re in a competition, you’ll be able to keep an eye on how well your friend is doing so that motivates you to step up your game when you see that he’s ahead of you in points.
You’ll find yourself pushing beyond just to keep from losing. If you end up beating your friend in the competition, you’re awarded a badge.
When the challenge is over, you and your friend can move on to another challenge with another player or you can create another challenge.
The watch will keep track of the number of times you’ve either won against the same player or lost. The power of competition works to help you lose weight, get in shape and best of all, it’s fun to take part in.
But the Apple Watch isn’t the only tool that you can use to engage in competitive weight loss. There are other fitness trackers that have this capability. You simply look up your gadget’s fitness sharing apps to find one that you like.
