Whether we like it or not, Apple wants to make us all healthier and more active. Counting our steps, counting our calories, digitally scoffing at our half-baked attempts at fitness – the new Health app is like a disapproving aunt watching over your shoulder, tutting at every anti-health transgression we make.
Apple is making the HealthKit open to third-party health metrics, so any fitness device worn by the user can feed data in to the Health app. Whether its your smart earbuds, a smartwatch or smart fitness socks, you’d better be careful what you wear if all you feel like doing is lying on the sofa and eating cream cakes all weekend.
Naturally, E&T maintains its svelte, racing-snake physique year round, kept active tracking all the latest Apple news and gathering it on to one handy Apple news page so you don’t have to.
