When it comes to Apple and the hypotheses surrounding its new gadgets and apps, nothing can surprise us anymore. The rumored Apple Healthbook App stirred quite a reaction among tech aficionados everywhere, as reports released recently by 9to5Mac show that the long – time debated health app is not only real, but it seems to become the future in personal health and fitness monitoring and tracking. Reports suggesting that the Apple Healthbook App will change the way people track data about their own health in order to keep in shape and engage in healthier lifestyles (where is the case) are not new, as Apple’s ambition to make a breakthrough in the health app market wasn’t born yesterday, but new reports and screenshots provided by the online resources tend to let us to believe that the Healthbook is a virtual doctor we can carry around all day long.
What does Apple Healthbook App Track?
This app is supposedly monitoring more than just vital signs, as the health app market already has a few such trackers. The Healthbook is said to track data regarding: bloodwork and blood pressure, blood sugar levels, heart rate, physical activity, nutrition, sleep patterns, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight. Moreover, the Weight card allows the user to calculate Body Mass Index in order to keep track of your true weight loss, while the Nutrition and food intake features allows a person to engage positively in keeping a diet.
One of the most interesting features of this app is the hydration one, a health index you don’t usually find measured by common health apps or by doctors for that matter, not to mention the very much appraised bloodworks the Apple Healthbook App comes with, namely blood sugar and blood oxygen levels, vitals that are usually measured in doctors offices, hospitals and labs. Although there are other bloodwork non – invasive devices that can track blood oxygen levels, the Apple Healthbook App looks like a successful combination between an analysis lab, a fitness professional, a physician and a specialist in prevention.
There are millions of people who could make good use of this app, from diabetics needing to check on their blood sugar a few times a day to people with cardio – vascular problems needing to check on their diastolic and systolic blood pressure, people with weight problems and so on. While some specialists imply that currently, the iPhone family doesn’t have enough app support for what Healthbook can do (thus requiring Apple to come up with a wearable gadget maybe in the shape of a highly performing iWatch), the question whether the Healthbook is real or not was finally answered: it looks very real and very useful. When are we going to benefit from its amazing capabilities? Now this is a question begging for answers very soon.
