Connect To Better Health with iHealth MyVitals

Monday, 27 March 2017

The ways that we interact, work and relax have all been transformed by our use of modern technology, so why haven't we incorporated these advantages into the way we monitor and care for our health? A wide array of new health-centred products have been created in recent years, but few have been able to truly permeate our routines in an intuitive and easy to use way. That's where iHealth comes in, with their range of intelligent health monitoring products, all conveniently linking to the central MyVitals app.

Intuitive and Easy to Use

With their range of health-related products, iHealth aim to make it as easy as possible for people of all ages and goals to take a more active role in managing their own health. They do this by designing and manufacturing innovative and consumer friendly mobile personal healthcare products, all of which connect to the cloud through the iHealth MyVitals app. All of their fitness-related products, including connected scales, activity trackers, oximeters and blood pressure monitors, are capable of working together to provide a truly complete picture of the user's health, both at a specific moment and in its progression over time.

The revolutionary new iHealth MyVitals app takes all of the guesswork out of monitoring your health, displaying vital information in the form of colourful charts and easy-to-read graphs to let users know their progress over time. Measure vital statistics such as calories burned,  BMI, muscle mass, sleep quality, blood pressure and more, providing a truly comprehensive approach to evaluating your health in real time. To keep your doctor or personal trainer in the loop, the app allows one-touch sharing of information, providing details of your vital status and progression instantly to their smart phone or computer.

Set Goals, Achieve, Repeat

When it comes to improving your health, no technology can replace the act of setting fitness goals and striving to surpass them. That's why the iHealth MyVitals app is designed to allow you to do just that. The app will give you instant access to your current progress versus your goals, letting you know when you're on track, and when you need to pick up your pace. To measure yourself against medical guidelines for key measurements like blood pressure, the app allows you to compare your results to standardised targets. To personalise your experience, the app allows you to record your own comments with your measurements, letting you note things like mood, activity types and general observations along your fitness journey.

Track Your Activity

Some of our favourite products from iHealth focus on tracking your activity, or lack of it, to give you a complete evaluation of your workouts and daily movement. These products are the iHealth Edge and iHealth Wave, providing users with the ability to track key statistics like steps taken, calories burned and quality of sleep, everywhere they go. Besides being stylish and lightweight, these wrist-worn activity trackers provide much-needed motivation and real-time updates of progress to help people move more and boost their health. After each workout, results are instantly displayed on-screen, providing up-to-date feedback automatically.

Both trackers have the crucial ability to measure duration and quality of sleep, an under-appreciated but crucial element of your overall health. Once you wake, these trackers display your sleep information, letting you know what you need to improve, prompting you to go about taking the steps to do so. While the Edge is suited to running and gym workouts, the Wave adds the extra element of swim tracking to the equation. Monitoring exertion and calories burned along with the type of stroke and number of movements, this tracker can truly go anywhere you can.

Intelligent Scales

Traditional scales can tell you how heavy you are, but that's only a small piece of the puzzle. iHealth's smart connected scales like the Core and the Lite provide detailed information about your body health and composition, and send these results to your smartphone for complete long-term analysis. Whether you're looking for a BMI tracker like the Lite or a full body-analysis system like the Core, iHealth has you covered. With the Core, in addition to BMI it can measure your lean muscle, bone and water mass, giving you a peek into the detailed world of body analysis. This means that you can access information that was previously only attainable with expensive and complicated professional equipment, right in the comfort of your own home.

Monitor Your Blood

While monitoring your workouts and sleep are important to gaining an accurate picture of your well-being, the health of your blood can't be ignored either. iHealth recognise this, and have created a range of blood pressure monitors, like the iHealth Feel, Sense and Track, providing a number of ways to keep track of improvements and changes to your blood pressure. If you wait for your next doctor's appointment, you could be missing key changes that can affect your health, but with these monitors you can catch any changes as soon as they develop.

Aside from monitoring the pressure of your blood, iHealth also provides the tools to measure its oxygen content with the iHealth Air. This fingertip oximeter transforms what was once a complicated process into a simple one: allowing you to simply place the device on your fingertip and see results on-screen in seconds. Whether you're an athlete looking to measure changes in how your body reacts to exercise, an ex-smoker looking to keep track of oxygen-saturation levels after quitting, or a sufferer of COPD, these blood-oxygen statistics are vital to your overall health evaluation.

Improve Your Health Today

After reviewing the vast array of health-tracking products that iHealth have to offer, the only thing left to do is get out there and see how these tools can work for you. Whether you're an athlete looking to push yourself to the next level, or just someone striving to make their next doctor's appointment a pleasant one, there are plenty of advantages iHealth products can provide. With connected scales, activity trackers and blood monitors, all connecting to an intuitive and easy-to-use app, iHealth have created a platform for us all to put our health in our own hands and motivate ourselves like never before.
