Azumio, a leader in the Mobile Health industry with over 30 million downloads, has joined forces with new fitness apps to give their users a new, unique way to monitor their health by way of the smartphone.
Popular fitness apps Nexercise, the fun, motivational weight-loss app, and Workout Hero, a leading CrossFit app, have recently combined features of the most popular Azumio app, Instant Heart Rate. The Nexercise and Workout Hero apps now allows users to periodically use their iPhone to monitor their heart rate during physical activity.
Nexercise is an interactive app where one can play with friends, get support, defeat challenges, and track your progress on the largest fitness mobile interactive game of its kind. With 150+ activities, Nexercise is the perfect community based motivational coach and training tool for any diet or weight loss program.
If the Azumio Instant Heart Rate app is already installed, Nexercise automatically launches Azumio Instant Heart Rate in track mode. When users start Nexercising in motion tracking mode, they can tap the Heart Icon on the upper right of the screen near the timer.
Users who use the Instant Heart Rate app in Nexercise receive extra additional experience points and a virtual medal for taking the measurement.
In addition to Nexercsie, Workout Hero, an industry-leading CrossFit app, has also combined the Instant Heart Rate feature to use inside the app. With Workout Hero, CrossFit fans can easily log a CrossFit workout of the day (WOD), monitor your records, and with the push of a button share your accomplishments on Facebook, Twitter or send your accomplishments via email.
For less than a dollar, you can download Instant Heart Rate which will automatically connect to and interact with Nexercise and Workout Hero.
Azumio has now released an SDK for iOS and Android. This will allow any other app developer to seamlessly integrate heart rate measurements into their user flow, and incorporate that HR data into their apps.
With the push of a button, IHR will open, they will take a measurement, and then the user is sent directly back to the other app with the data in hand. This allows other health and fitness apps to utilize our technology, for instance to measure optimal heart rate zones during exercise, or to track resting heart rate over time, or to monitor recovery from exercise, etc.
