Apple Updates HealthBook With Even More

With the iWatch still on the horizon, and iOS 8 officially announced and coming soon, there is a lot that still isn’t known for sure. With the newest update to the beta of HealthBook, we now have a look at a couple of new additions that will help Apple take over the health market, reports Apple Balla.

The first part of the update covers the caffeine tracking that will be included. While blood pressure and glucose monitoring are going to be handled automatically, caffeine intake will still have to be entered manually. This shouldn’t be surprising, though, since it would take blood work to get accurate readings. That doesn’t change the fact that it is a vital measurement for those trying to be healthier and keep track of what they put into their body.

The update also brings a pedometer into the mix. Other fitness tracking companies have beat them to the punch, but by including an incredibly accurate one here Apple is beating out other App makes as well as third party companies that produce products like the FitBit. This will be handled by the built in M7 coprocessor as well, which allows Apple to measure the amount of steps taken without using a third party product. At least until the iWatch is released.

This will make iOS 8 a powerful health tracking tool, although many are still waiting to see how the iWatch plays out. With the ability to track an increasing number of health aspects, it could be just what they need to put many fitness tracking companies out of business.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
