FITNESS TRACKERS CAN ALSO COMMUNICATE WITH THE HEALTH APP
In addition to the Apple Watch being designed to work seamlessly with the Health app on the iPhone to gather fitness-related data and transmit it wirelessly and in real time, several third-party fitness trackers are available. For example, there’s the popular Nike+ FuelBand SE (www.nike.com/FuelBand); several products from Fitbit (www.fitbit.com), including the Fitbit Flex, Fitbit Ultra, Tory Burch ring, and the Metal Fret Pendant; and Jawbone’s Up24 fitness and sleep tracker bracelet (https://jawbone.com/up). Each of these products works with a proprietary iPhone app as well as the Health app.
Other companies offer more high-tech medical devices that work with the iPhone (and Health app). For example, there’s the iBGStar Glucose Meter (www.ibgstar.us), iPhoneECG Electrocardiogram from AliveCor (www.alivecor.com), and the Withings Blood Pressure Monitor (www.withings.com/us/blood-pressure-monitor.html).
