Apple is rolling out a series of new heart health resources in February to support users’ health journeys to stay moving and informed. Additionally, the Apple Heart and Movement Study is sharing preliminary lifestyle trends analysed over the past year. Marking Heart Month, Apple is offering custom compilations across Apple Fitness+, the App Store, the Apple TV app, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books.
“We’re strong believers at Apple that if you can empower people with information about their health, you can change the trajectory of their well-being,”
said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.
“Keeping your heart healthy requires a holistic approach — something we’ve focused on since the first generation of Apple Watch with the inclusion of activity and workout apps, in addition to heart rate. Today, people of all ages can use our products and services to learn more about staying healthy, work toward their personal goals, and have a lot of fun along the way.”
To help Apple Watch users stay motivated, Apple is offering a new Heart Month Activity Challenge to help people of all fitness levels put their health first by completing 30 minutes in their Exercise ring on February 14 to earn a special award.
Also starting February 14, to help users earn the award and stay active, Fitness+ will feature a special section of 30-minute energising workouts that will motivate users to get their weekly minutes of exercise.
On the App Store, users can find a collection of apps that help them take care of their cardiovascular health by providing valuable insights into their heart rate and activity levels.
Apps like HeartWatch (Tantsissa), Gentler Streak (Gentler Stories), and Zones (Flask) can empower users to optimize their fitness and overall wellness by accessing personalised workouts, monitoring key heart rate metrics, and tracking health vitals.
