It looks like the Microsoft Health app will be coming to Windows 10 PCs and the Italian Microsoft news site WindowsBlogItalia was able to get a fairly extensive look at the it.
Currently, Microsoft Band owners and users of the Microsoft Health platform have had to either use the mobile app or web dashboard to access their health and fitness tracking data. But WindowsBlogItalia got a look at the new Windows 10 app for PCs which looks to have more ways to track and analyze your health.
Translated from WindowsBlogItalia’s website, the new app’s description page reads:
Sets the goals of welfare and get recommended programs useful for implementing a healthier life through color graphs and charts and easy-to-understand information in convenient app for phones or in robust Web dashboard.
Achieve your fitness goals with custom tracing when run, ride a bike, play golf or do physical exercise. Register a course map or GPS lap or follow the requests of guided exercises direct from the band.
Stay connected with e-mail, documents, calendar, social updates and alerts.
There will also be an upgrade to the mobile version. The new Microsoft Health app for Windows 10 Mobile will finally get the option to make the live tile completely transparent. You will also be able to customize which info is displayed on the Live Tile, such as steps counted, calories burned, miles walked, etc.
For those unfamiliar with Microsoft Health, it is Microsoft’s cloud platform for tracking your health and physical activity. The app is currently available on Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile.
Microsoft Health works with either your phone’s sensors or with the Microsoft Band to track your activity levels, and you can use the app to keep track of your workouts, runs, golf games, bike rides and more. It can also sync with your RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, Strava, and MapMyFitness accounts. Certain third party activity trackers, like FitBit, can also update their info to the Microsoft Health Vault in the cloud which is connected to your Microsoft Health account.
The forthcoming Windows 10 app looks like it will be a better way to take a dive into your health data, set goals for yourself, and manage your Microsoft Health info. In addition to the recent April update for the Microsoft Band 2, today’s leak of the upcoming app reaffirms Microsoft’s commitment to growing its health platform.Further reading: Android, iOS, Microsoft, Microsoft Health, Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1
