What's New in Version 2.9.0
Introducing Nutrition Tracking
Food logged through MyFitnessPal now syncs in real time to your Health Mate timeline. With nutrition and weight data all in one place, it’s easier than ever to reach your goals.
Be on the lookout for new animations designed to encourage and amuse you. We love your input, so feel free to share your feedback when you receive your first animation.
Quick Actions for iPhone 6S and 6S+
With Quick Actions you can now access most of your Health Mate data right on your home screen. What will you do with all that saved time?
Watch disables step counting in app
For most people it's probably not a problem, the point of wearables is to wear them all the time. That said, I had thought the app and the watch would work together, the app would reconcile it's data with the watch's data and give me an accurate step count based on the TWO devices. Rather what seems to happen is the data works from the watch exclusively, so if I take the watch off the app no longer counts ANY steps (even though my phone is still tracking the steps, the app apparently won't recognize them without the watch).
If you're wearing the watch 24/7, no problem. But that's not the case for me, so unfortunately for me buying the watch has made this app useless, since anytime I'm not wearing the watch the app will not track anything. Bummer.
Latest Update: yay for Nutrition, boo for it being so buggy and step tracking issues
I am very happy that Nutrition has been added to the app however the budget seems to have a mind of its own — just when I get it where I want it (in sync with MyFitnessPal) it drops 7 calories for no apparent reason and now it seems to settle on being 200 calories less then what I had it at for the previous three days. Numerous forced restarts can’t seem to bring it in check…
Of greater concern is that it no longer records any step activity as a background task. I shouldn’t have to launch the app and stare at it to make sure it is recording my steps.
A feature request would be to add activities from workouts like walking on a treadmill to the steps — with the app feedback telling me I had been the least active I had been in 15 days after walking 5.2 miles on my treadmill this is very counter to encouragement — speaking of this feedback feature — I haven’t had any since at least the last update as well as no further notes when I have achieved a new low weight. That was at least encouraging feedback — something lacking in the app recently.
I hope you read these reviews and squash these bugs.
I have dropped seven pounds using this app in conjunction with their Activite Pop watch. The app catches my every step, even when I'm on the elliptical, bike, and other such equipment in the gym. I love how it calculates your calories burned and even splits it to tell you how much of that was done actively instead of just your BMR. It tells me how much I've slept last night and even breaks it down into light as deep sleep. The badges are fun and I love that it congratulates you for meeting your step goal. Seriously an amazing app and I owe my increased health to it as without its insights I'd probably have remained a couch potato.
