Numerous popular fitness and health apps can communicate with Medistance Connect through Apple Health and extract data from any app, measurement device you are currently using. We have already mentioned some, but it has not been discussed how to connect them or find the right applications.
One useful way is to simply tap on one of the categories in the Apple Health app and scroll down. At the bottom of the page, you’ll see apps suggested for that category. For example, you will find nutrition like MyFitnessPal’s Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker or some recipe apps.
There are two ways to upload data to Medistance Connect using Apple Health. Automatically through connected devices and applications or manually. Although automatic synchronisation is much more favourable and convenient, in some cases it is inevitable to enter or add data manually. For example, if you went on a run without a measuring device but don’t want to lose the valuable kilometres.
For example, if you are tracking the use of an inhaler, it should be added manually. Find the appropriate data field in the Data tab of the Apple Health app, tap the small plus icon in the corner to enter the values. All of this is instantly synchronized with the Medistance Connect app and then with your personal profile on the high-speed SAP HANA backend.
The Medistance Connect app also receives data from smartphones’ on-board motion sensors and GPS, so you can get more information about their steps, calories burned, distance, steps of stairs, just by taking your smartphones with you.
Through the Apple HealthKit API, the app provides synchronisation with various third-party apps and tools that record your movement, sleep, weight, body fat percentage, blood pressure, nutrition, body temperature, and a variety of other measurable data. The easy to use dashboard has the advantage of taking you directly to what you want to see and ignores everything else.
By tapping on each item, a new screen appears, giving you a breakdown of your most recently recorded data. For example, go to Activity to see a list of posts and how active you were on that day, month, year.
