“Healthbook” Will be just “Health”

After months of speculation about what kinds of things are going to be involved in iOS 8. Now, however, the WWDC is here and we are starting to get the first look at some of these features, including the much talked about App that will help track various aspects of your health like no other product on the market.

Simply titled “Health,” this app is going to measure your blood pressure, respiratory rate, sleep patters, fitness levels, oxygen levels, and so much more. This is all handled through a new API known as HealthKit, which will work, in the future, with the iWatch. We still haven’t seen an official announcement for the wearable device, but all signs point to yes when it comes to the production of one.

There are other products on the market that can already handle these kinds of things, but thanks to the high quality team that Apple brought in for the job, this is one that will go far above and beyond what the others have been capable of. The blood glucose monitoring feature in particular is mind blowing compared to the overall lack of non invasive methods we have at the moment.

Samsung might have beaten Apple to announcing their own version of this technology, but once Apple supports it fully it will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with, especially with the final release of the iWatch, which analysts are expecting to give the company a boost that it has not seen in years.
