This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Paired with Apple Watch, Heart Halo displays what Workout.app data and daily steps mean for your heart health.
Developed alongside scientists at the Mayo Clinic, the Halo interprets health records and renders them into a holistic view that tells you how close you are to your daily recommended heart rate thresholds. Heart Halo rates your performance each day on multiple dimensions, and creates a daily score as well as a rolling score for the last 14 days. These two scores show you what aspects of heart health based exercise you do well, and where you have room to improve.
Improve these scores to increase your heart health, and thereby extend your life.
The top levels of this app are for strenuous exercise. Be prepared to get and keep your heart pumping to score Elite!
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Some small bug fixes for some users. Most people will not notice a difference.
Nice Companion for Apple Watch Rings
I've been a part of the beta process for this app and it was really nice to see the app evolve up to this point.
Basically, if you have an Apple Watch and track your rings, this is a nice companion to it for additional motivation and things to complete. In this app, you get a "halo" which goes from bronze, silver, gold and then Elite. I haven't gotten up to Elite yet but I have hit Gold several times.
These halos are hard enough to make you want to push harder but not too hard to make reaching a certain Halo hard.
The only feedback I have is that sometimes, the app feels laggy and slow. Losing up the halo takes some time even on a 6S. The animations aren't smooth enough and the presented information could be cleaner.
Overall, I'm happy with the app and look forward to future updates!
Very impressive. Over the last 10 years I've worked with wearables, remote monitoring and have reviewed many of the "high end" applications in this area. Personally, I think the halo app has (by far) the most interesting way of displaying data while I exercise. Looking forward to using this as it continues to move forward.
Maximize your apple watch
Really a terrific app to help make sense of all the data from the apple watch... My HALO allows me to stay away from the standard calorie count and number of steps by motivating high intensity & elevated heart rate workouts! Definitely a game changer...
