About the book

A realistic guide to getting and staying healthy and fit – a great alternative to a personal trainer!

Improving our health and fitness is a significant part of most of our lives: from walking more steps each day; to setting up regular workout routines; to monitoring our general health. However, one of the issues when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle is motivation: without regular encouragement and targets it can be hard to maintain a new healthier regime. With the iPhone and Apple Watch as your new health companions it is possible to:

  • set activity targets
  • monitor your progress
  • be rewarded with a range of virtual prizes for extra motivation and fun.

iPhone & Apple Watch for Health & Fitness in easy steps shows how to best utilize your iPhone, and Apple Watch if you have one, so that health and fitness becomes something to look forward to rather than a necessary chore.

The book explains the built-in Health App on the iPhone, including the categories for which health data can be recorded, including fitness, nutrition, sleep analysis and health monitoring such as blood pressure and heart rate. Recording and entering data is covered for each category, showing how you can build up an overall map of health and fitness, which can then be viewed on the app's Dashboard.

Since walking and running are two of the easiest and most popular forms of exercise, there is a chapter dedicated to this. It shows how to using running apps and pedometer apps to monitor walking and running, display distances and calories used and also find and map routes and sharing your exercise data with other people.

The book details the areas in which the iPhone and Apple Watch can be used for health and fitness and also shows how they interact with each other to share and display health and fitness information that you have recorded. There is also a comprehensive chapter on the Apple Watch so that you can use all of its features to their maximum potential.

The Apple Watch also comes with two built-in apps:

  • The Activity app
  • The Workout app

Both are covered in depth in the book. Both of these apps can be used to monitor activity and exercise, set targets and view daily activity and workout information on your iPhone. They are a great way to stay motivated about your health goals and iPhone & Apple Watch for Health & Fitness in easy steps  shows how they can help to elevate you to greater heights in your health and fitness endeavours.

In addition to the built-in apps, the App Store also has a Health & Fitness category that can be used to find apps for both the iPhone and Apple Watch. These include apps for running, fitness classes, workouts, nutrition and healthy habits. These apps are tailored specifically for the iPhone or the Apple Watch and some of them can be downloaded in bundled collections. In general, they help to take your health and fitness activities to a new level in addition to the built-in ones.

iPhone & Apple Watch for Health & Fitness in easy steps is the essential, full-colour guide to helping people achieve realistic and long-term health and fitness goals, using the iPhone and Apple Watch, and ensuring that it is fun and gratifying at the same time.
