The iOS 8 Offers a Ton of New Features for Health & Sleep Tracking
With the launch of the iPhone 6 and the recent iOS 8 software upgrade, Apple once again has us in the palm of their hands.
iOS 8 has some incredible new features including photo editing, iCloud Drive (allowing users to work on any file, anywhere), an intelligent keyboard, and more ways to share content. A significant part of the iOS 8 upgrade involves the technology of the Health feature, providing a single place where all health and fitness applications are integrated and contribute to a comprehensive user profile which tracks your activity and health picture. The new Health app provides an easy to use dashboard of your personal data along with detailed sleep statistics and graphs for every night, allowing all the incredible apps out there to work together.
The menu of the new Health tracking feature includes:
- Personal Profile
- Body Measurements
- Sleep & Full Sleep Analysis (with Dashboard and Medical ID)
The Health app tracks every aspect of your health and fitness from calories burned to our particular favorite, your sleep.
HealthKit makes all your applications more useful by allowing more sharing of information with critical people like your personal trainer and even your health care providers. With your health and fitness apps working in unison, they become more effective, and so do you.
Overall, the new Health app through the iOS 8 system download partners with other additional applications to provide unique accessibility and a full scope and overview of your personal health picture through the touch of a button, in the palm of your hand.
