The biggest feature of Gentler Streak version 3.1 is the new menstrual cycle metric which can be found on the Wellbeing tab. Once users input a little bit of information regarding their cycle in the app, they will be provided with information on the exact phase of their cycle and the impact it may have on their daily well-being as well as insights on each phase of the menstrual cycle. In addition, users’ activity guidance will accordingly be adjusted to their readiness.

“Gentler Streak remains a health and fitness app. While we include vital parts of the menstrual cycle in our guidance, we let the specialized apps handle the rest. As each body is different and carries the baby their own way, we do not cover guidance designed for pregnancy. Medical professionals are the ones to support and guide woman’s way through this transformative period,” says co-founder Katarina Lotrič.

Gentler Streak ranks highest for evidence-based exercise intensity guidance
