Apple’s Rumored Healthbook

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Apple’s major first step into health & fitness tracking is called HealthBook, says 9to5 Mac. Healthbook’s user interface, inspired by the iPhone’s existing Passbook application, is reportedly in testing and capable of tracking several different health and fitness data points.

Each category of functionality is a card in the Healthbook. Cards are distinguished by a color, and the tabs can be arranged to fit user preferences.

Healthbook, apparently, has sections that can track data pertaining to bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight.

In addition to health and fitness tracking, Healthbook will be a centrally-located place that holds critical data about each iPhone user. The Emergency Card will store the customer’s name, birthdate, medication information, weight, eye color, blood type, organ donor status, and location, information that is critical for an emergency technician, doctor, or hospital staffer.

In an interview with the Sunday Times of London, Johnny Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of design, said that he would stop working for Apple only if the company stopped innovating.
