Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Digifit®, a leading mobile-health technology company that develops heart rate monitoring, team and corporate wellness apps that empower healthier living, announced their integration with Apple’s new Health app on iOS 8. Digifit is an engaging and effective app that provides highly accurate fitness and caloric burn measurements during cardio activity. Synching workout stats from Digifit to the Health app along with data from other health and fitness accounts and devices gives users a clear and current overview in one place while inspiring positive behavior change.
Digifit features an all-in-one exercise tracking solution that measures, monitors and reports exercise activities, such as walking, hiking, running, and biking in real-time to improve performance and promote healthier lifestyles. GPS data enables route mapping and is recorded along with speed, pace, distance, elapsed time, heart zone, and approximated calorie burn, all which are reported via brilliant colorful displays and timely voice feedback. Users can also tap into a series of fitness assessments to test their fitness level and set personalized heart rate zones for an even more targeted exercise practice. They can also set personal goals and create teams and leaderboards with friends and family.
The Digifit Engagement Experience Platform (DEEP) underlying the apps is offered as the last mile solution for individuals and companies seeking a mobile health engagement experience that moves beyond tracking to actual behavior change. Any portal-based wellness program can be transformed to a mobile experience.
“Integrating with Apple’s Health app gives our users an easy-to-use platform for assessing data across multiple apps and devices, and provides a valuable perspective on the impact of lifestyle choices,” said Dean Hovey, President and CEO of Digifit. “By reviewing overall activity including steps, exercise and sleep, or analyzing weekly and monthly trends, users can better manage their personal health and take the steps to adopt healthier habits.”
Apple’s new Health app gathers data from users’ various health apps and fitness devices and offers a clear, composite overview. With user’s permission, each app can use specific information from other apps to provide a more comprehensive way to manage personal health and fitness. Users will be able to gather and monitor their own fitness metrics using apps such as Digifit and MyFitnessPal.
Healthcare providers can now monitor the data their patients choose to share through apps, such as Mayo Clinic’s healthcare app or Epic’s MyChart app that will be used by Duke Medicine and Stanford Children’s Health/Stanford Medicine, among others. Digifit is leveraging the integration capabilities to impact the corporate and healthcare sectors, creating more memorable and powerful experiences around personal health.
Digifit’s suite of apps, iCardio, iRunner & iBiker, are available for download in the App Store for the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
Digifit motivates people to live healthier, happier lives while dramatically reducing avoidable health care costs. They’re all about stimulating new healthy habits. As the “last mile solution,” Digifit offers a mobile health engagement experience that moves fitness tracking into the realm of actual behavior change. As the first app on the market to incorporate heart rate training, Digifit gives users a bigger picture of their health, including weight, blood pressure, sleep, and fitness - through both a mobile app and full web portal. Individuals, groups, corporate wellness programs and healthcare systems can all benefit from the Digifit solution.
