Apple’s HealthKit

As we are all aware since last 2-3 years the new trend of India in all generations is Health & Fitness – Than why should Technology be left behind. Here we will let you know how Apple has made strong HealthKit & Fitness applications that are strongly proven effective and useful in the current trend.

Let’s Have a look at What is Apple’s HealthKit is all about:

A healthkit framework designed by Apple that allows Healthcare and Fitness applications to access, work together and share health data by maintaining privacy and data control of users – is known as HEALTH KIT.

Apple’s HealthKit is also known as Centralized Hub for Health data.

Healthkit provides a central depository for fitness and health data on Apple Watch and iPhone with permission of consumers to communicate with the health kit and provide access to the store and share data.

How effective it is to Integrate Healthkit Data while Developing Fitness Apps for iPhone:

Apple's HealthKit

Apple has made it easier for the iPhone app developers to Develop fitness apps for iPhone with the Healthkit framework. With some iOS versions, this framework could save information automatically using consistent Bluetooth LE heart rate screens.

To Create or Develop a complete individual health fitness app that includes a variety of tasks such as gathering health & fitness data, storing health & fitness data, enabling social interactions, and analyzing and visualizing the data.

Integrating a Healthkit with health and fitness apps for iPhone, iOS, and watchOS can create an absolute consumer experience. Whenever a user gives access to the app for reading and writing activity data & health towards their health app, the App becomes a valuable data source that can deliver powerful health and fitness solutions.

Apple’s HealthKit can handle unit conversations using the HK unit. In Apple’s Healthkit there are around 60 object types are there hence we can not create our own object type. Each object contains UID, Metadata, and Source data, and also each object type is recognized by the object identifier.

The HealthKit framework is used for storage and retrieving all health-related information with privacy and permission by authorization request with different roles or users.

An In-built Health app consists of 5 things as Medical ID, Dashboard, Manual entry as Datapoint, Health data privacy permissions, and export feature to export the health details. A health kit first filters the gathered data by all third-party health and fitness apps then transfers that data into Apple’s Health App and the app classifies them into above discussed five things.

Small requirements for iPhone Apps Developer for fitness app as what needs to build for the best apps:

The basic first thing is that an iPhone app developer must have a sound knowledge of Apple’s Health-oriented software development kits, Care kit, Healthkit, and Research kit. As the apps that share the API of the kits communicate with each other to help the users have relevant data in regards to their health and vice versa third-party APIs need to be integrated with the iPhone app.

Some detailed featured points that an iPhone app developer needs to keep in mind while developing health and fitness apps are the most common and attractive Visual representation of the exercises, Amount of water intake, Different fitness plans for Beginners, Intermediate and advanced, Guidance or communication options with Health and fitness experts, Diet charts, Tracking of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly progress, Calorie counter, Push notifications and Feedback option.

After reading this we all are aware now of what kind of data storage HealthKit stores or tracks in it. Now get brief about the object type and structure for how health data get tracked by user’s activities. All objects can be characteristics or category types or samples and samples further can be quantities.

Quality of data contained by HealthKit:

Apple’s HealthKit has a comprehensive data type, including the user’s gender, Sleep patterns, Body temperature, Blood type, Blood alcohol level, Blood glucose, Heart rate, Workout duration and intensity, Diet, Cycling, and walking activity, and more.

Healthkit encourages the development of apps and gadgets so that sharing all health-related information with each other becomes easy.

HealthKit does not allow sharing any information with other individuals like other applications. It all depends on the permission and privacy of the users. HealthKit permits users to share health information among healthcare providers and other individuals.
