Do you have a habit that you want to lose or develop? Now, you can use your Apple Watch and its iOS companion to track how often you perform an action. Quantified is an event-counting app that can keep track of any behavior you wish to monitor. You can set your own counters and place them in one of the twelve available categories. Progress is reflected within the daily, weekly and monthly views.
For example, you can easily track the amount of beers you’ve drunk. Every time you delight yourself with a serving, flick your wrist or grab your iPhone and increment the Beer counter. This way you’ll know how many units you sipped down in a week, month or year. You can impose yourself a monthly drinking limit and use the Quantified logs to remain within your goal.

How To Use Quantified Habit Tracker

Whenever you opt for a New Metric pick a descriptive title and select a proper category. You can choose between: Food, Mood, Lifestyle, Technology, Health, Work, Friends, Home, Beverage, Family, Sports and Habits. Tap Add in the top-right corner to complete the process.
2. Tracking Habits: After adding them to the Quantified home screen, you have to manually increase the counter each time you perform the monitored behavior. Tap the “+” icon to increment the counter. If you accidentally tap an event you can delete it by using the “-“ button. An Apple Watch will prove itself very useful at this stage, because you can easily add units from your wrist. Raise your hand to wake your gadget and swipe up from the Watch Face. Now, slide left or right until you reach the Quantified glance. You’ll see the last tracked item and the count of the total events tracked today. Tap the glance and the actual Quantified Apple Watch app opens up. Select the counter that you wish to tweak and hit the same plus and minus buttons to adjust the counters when needed.

5 Recommended Behaviors You Should Track
Here are some examples of habits that you can track and use the numbers to improve your lifestyle:
1. Cigarettes: Quit smoking by seeing how many cigarettes you burn during a day. Realize that this behavior has to be changed and gradually decreasing the daily amount of nicotine poisoning until you manage to quit them all.
2. Social Media: Track the amount of times you use the famous social media websites and realize how much time you’re wasting. Impose a limit and decrease the time spent Like-ing.
3. Eating Habits: Count how many times you devour sweets and encourage yourself to eat healthy more often.
4. Work Out: Track the days and times you performed physical activity. For example you can have a history of how many times you went swimming.
5. Sleep: Monitor how often you sleep at least 7 hours per night and realize if you’re tired because of lack of sleep.
