5 Apps That Are Compatible with the Apple’s HealthKit

If you’re a health conscious┬áperson and are always trying to keep yourself healthy, then there’s some good news for you from Apple. With the launch of iOS 8, Apple introduced a new app called Health. If you haven’t already guessed what it does by its name, it’s an app that lets you keep track of your fitness. It tells you how many calories you burned, and other information using various sensors on your iDevice. As if this wasn’t enough, there are some developers who have developed apps that work in collaboration with the Apple HealthKit to give you more insight to your health. Here are five of the best apps that you can use with the Health app on your device.

1. UP


If you already own an UP tracker, the UP app will let you gather data from it and show it to you in a user-friendly way. The app connects to the HealthKit and shares data with it, so you don’t always have to open this app to know how long you walked yesterday, and so on. Just launch the Health app and you will have your data available there. It tracks your diet and sleeping as well to give you suggestions of whether you need more sleep or whether you’re over-sleeping.

It costs nothing and you can get it from the App Store.

2. Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker


Are you one of those who keep their diet plans ready for the month that is yet to come? The Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker app can help you with your task. Using the data gathered from your device, the app counts your calories and tracks your diet to see how fit you are. If you don’t like the results, just change your diet plan and you should be good. While the data is always available in the app, you have the chance to connect it to the Health app on your device.

If you wish to give this app a try, just head over to the App Store and download it for free to your device.

3. Sleepio


Do you think your work pressure doesn’t let you sleep properly? If so, Sleepio can help you get a better sleep. The app works in collaboration with the Health app and lets you track your sleep to determine if there’s anything wrong that may be preventing you from being healthy. It gets the data from various tests and the trackers that you may be wearing. After analyzing the data available on hand, it then gives you some techniques that you can use for a better sleep.

You can get the app for free from the App Store.

4. Health Mate


Not only does Health Mate track your everyday activities, but it keeps track of your heart rate to keep it healthy. With an excellently designed user-interface, the app gathers and shows you the important data about yourself. From telling you your heart rate to the number of steps you have walked so far, it knows just about everything you do. There are goals in the app that you can accomplish to get motivated and to do more exercises. It also connects with the Health app on your device for better data gathering.

The app can be obtained for free from the App Store.

5. WebMD


If you happen to read health blogs, you’re likely to have heard of WebMD. The site now has an app that lets you check what disease you’re suffering from and also gives you fitness tips. With the symptom checker feature, you can now know what’s causing your knee pain or why your neck has frozen. Just click on the part of your body that isn’t feeling well, and the app should tell you why. Besides tracking, it gives you information about various medicines, health magazines, and so on. It integrates very well with the Health app.

You can grab the app for free from the App Store.


Who doesn’t like being healthy? The apps above connect with the Health app on your iDevice to provide you with the most important information about your body, and to improve your health.
