Nexercise, the weight loss app for busy people, has partnered with Azumio to enhance the Nexercise user experience. Nexercise, together with Azumio’s “Instant Heart Rate” app now allows users to periodically use their iPhone to monitor their heart rate during physical activity. The great part is that this functionality is available without the need to purchase an external heart rate monitor. For less than $1, users can download the Azumio “Instant Heart Rate” app, which will automatically connect to and interact with Nexercise.
The Nexercise team is excited about this for a number of reasons. “This is our first step towards integrating health measuring equipment into the Nexercise app” said Nexercise CEO and co-founder, Ben Young. “This integration allows our users to get a periodic heart rate snapshot, ensuring they are exercising in a safe and optimal zone, depending on their goals,” Young continued. In the future, Nexercise, plans to allow users to capture their health data and monitor trends over time. From a broader perspective, this integration allows Nexercise to better understand trends and health metrics so they may offer the best possible solution to motivate people to move and stay active.
