Collection of Health data such as calories burned and heart rate requires an Apple Watch or other Apple Health connected device.
Arc is only awake and using GPS when you are active and moving. For the rest of the day Arc stays in a low power sleep mode, with GPS turned off, to conserve battery.
On a typical day of two to three hours of travel a single full battery charge should last from morning to evening without requiring extra recharging during the day. However longer trips (for example a long hike or cross country drive) may consume more than expected battery, due to Arc needing to be awake and recording, with GPS activated, for the duration of the trip.
For longer trips, I recommend plugging your phone into a car charger or battery pack, to avoid unpleasant battery surprises.

Hopefully fixed the crash during launch that is affecting a small number of people.
Arc now monitors the thermal state of your phone (ie how hot it is), and dynamically adjusts its processing and recording to suit the thermal conditions.
A note on data gaps and "Arc has been stopped" notifications:
If you are experiencing frequent notifications that Arc has been stopped by iOS, or frequent data gaps, and you own a newer model phone (iPhone 8, X, or newer), please contact Apple support, quoting bug number 45805073.
Apple have yet to acknowledge the iOS 12 bug that is causing increased instability and unreliability for background apps on newer model phones. Perhaps it's time they heard from more of us!
Those other apps that you mention do not perform the same kinds of tasks as Arc. They may appear similar in some ways, but there is no other app in the same class as Arc, and as such, there are some iOS problems that are either unique to Arc, or experienced most strongly by Arc, due to its higher system requirements.
When I say what the problem is, I am saying what the problem is. I take some offence that you suggest I am incorrect, considering I have dedicated many years of my life to this kind of work, and consider myself an expert in it. I do not lie, and I do not pass blame without great certainty in my correctness.
When you have technical issues in future, it would be best if you contacted me directly, from the "Feedback & Support" button inside the app. I am happy to help you directly. That is much more preferable than to receive an App Store review that accuses me of either incompetence of lying. The latter does cause some offence.
Thank you for your understanding.
