App and Health

Nowdays, the app market allows us to control every aspect of our life, even the user’s health state. It is possible to monitorate the food calories that we eat, our heartbeat, the km we run, the steps we make, the average speed of our running and many other things.

One of this is “Health“, an app developed by Apple and pre-installed on the new iOS 8 that indicates anything we do without other hardwares. Even glycemia, cholesterol and caffeine levels in our blood can be monitored. The Smartwatches include all of these functionalities plus the possibility to control the quality of our sleep by the movements during the night, the breathing of a baby and the risks our skin may incur when exposed to the sun. Overall, these apps improve the quality of our life, helping us to mantain healthy hobbies.
