Semler Heart App Review

Semler Heart is an extremely simple to use application available from the App shop. It has no usage instructions that I had the ability to find, but, thankfully, it has a very simple interface. Throughout setup, which went perfectly, it requests access to the data kept by the iPhone’s Health App. Specifically, it demands access to the information on the variety of steps. The main display screen contains 2 big circles and three icons along the bottom row, Activity, History and Tips. The main screen that displays is Activity. It has two large circles with the top one being the bigger of the two. It displays the information pulled from the Health App as the variety of steps for the existing day and a conversion to the variety of miles. Around the edge of the circle is a green strip that is a visual indicator of how near your daily “steps” objective you are. The 2nd and smaller circle consists of a display of how many actions you have staying to achieve your day-to-day objective. Pressing on this “Objective” circle, brings up a brand-new screen that raises a new circle with 2 sliders bars in it. The leading slider permits you to set either a Month-to-month, Day-to-day or Weekly, step goal; the bottom slider allows you to set your number of actions, varying from 1000 to 16000. Whichever timeframe you choose affects the main screen, with a sign of your actions toward the Daily, Weekly or Regular monthly objective that you chose. Here, the only problem that I have is that the objective steps only goes up to 16000. Thankfully for me, this is only sensible as a daily objective quantity, not weekly or monthly. I do like the concept of having the other objective timeframes, but I am uncertain why it was so limited.

When you press on the History icon, it pulls the information from the last 7 days, supplying you with a list which indicates the day and actions. Here, I am not sure, bu the bottom most ones does not indicate the day of the week, but the real date, not that this really impacts anything about the App.

Tapping on the Tips icon supplies you with valuable tips/notes concerning heart health. There is likewise an image of Dr Herbert J. Semler, which, when tapped, supplies a bio for Dr Semler and a way to contact him, by bouncing out to his website, semlerhealthperks.com.

In general, the App is really easy to use, makes a point about the importance of doing workout, certainly focused on walking, and ran without issue. As specified, the info is pulled from the Health App as far as the step information goes. The range information seems to be self-generated, given that it is various from that which is displayed in that Health App. That this App is FREE, makes it a no brainer to download and use.
