The Apple Watch offers a variety of features and apps that can help you maintain and enhance your health and wellbeing, from heart rate monitoring to cycle tracking.
🙌 Apple has often promoted the health-related abilities of the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch Series 4, 5, and 6, for example, come with an ECG app that can take an electrocardiogram of your heart rhythm. They’re also equipped with a fall-detection app that can contact emergency services if you’re unresponsive after a fall. All versions of Apple Watch include a heart rate monitor and Health app that can display your health profile and Medical ID.
With watchOS 6, Apple added a Noise app to monitor the surrounding noise level and a Cycle Tracking app to help monitor menstrual cycles. Apple unveiled its own sleep tracking app and a handwashing timer with watchOS 7. Now the Apple Watch Series 6 has an oximeter to check your blood oxygen level. Here’s how you can get healthy with an Apple Watch.
⛑️ View Your Health Information
Through the Health app on your iPhone, you can enter health information about yourself and view it on your watch. To set this up, open the Health app on your iPhone and tap the profile picture in the upper-right corner.
To view information on your watch, Go to Settings > Health. Here, you can tap the entries for Health Profile and Medical ID to see the information you provided.
👂🏻 Protect Your Hearing
Consistent loud noises can damage your ears and even lead to hearing loss. The purpose of the Noise app is to monitor surrounding noise and warn you if sounds are above a safe level.
First set up the decibel threshold via your iPhone or watch and turn on the Environmental Sound Measurements option to begin monitoring noise levels.
👩 Track Your Menstrual Cycles
The Cycle Tracking app allows you to track your menstrual cycle. To set this up on your iPhone, open the Health app and tap Browse > Cycle Tracking > Get Started. You will then need to enter the date of your last period, indicate how many days your period usually lasts, and choose the typical length of each cycle.
You can then control features for Period Prediction, Period Notifications, Fertile Window Prediction, Log Fertility, and Log Sexual Activity, all of which can be helpful if you’re trying to get (or avoid being) pregnant.
😴 Track Your Sleep
With watchOS 7, Apple finally unveiled its own sleep tracker. The app can help you prepare for sleep, tell you how much actual sleep you got during the night, and reveal your sleeping pattern over a period of time. To set this up, open the Health app on your iPhone. Swipe down the Summary screen and tap the Get Started button for Set Up Sleep. Follow the screens to set your various goals and schedules.
Wear your watch to bed. You can then turn on sleep tracking directly from your iPhone or from the Sleep app on your watch. The next morning, check the sleep data on your iPhone to see how much sleep you got.
