Went from “I hate this” to “I love this” a couple years ago. I like having fitness tracking on my person especially during runs and other workouts. ProTip™: get rid of most of your notifications. Keep those on your phone, not your wrist.
I'm not a *huge* podcast guy, but there's some arcane MLS podcasts I like to follow, and Breaker is the best podcast client I've used. Definitely keeps a place on my home screen, and a perpetual "ugh I really need more time to listen to more podcasts" level in my heart.
