Microsoft updates Windows 8 Health Vault app to make it easier for your to track your fitness goals
After Microsoft has launched its own health and fitness app, Health Vault, in the Windows Store, I have immediately become a loyal user and have been sticking to it ever since. Even if there hasn’t been a Windows 8.1 update, I can confirm that there are no bugs whatsoever, so I guess the previous updates were enough. Let’s see what they were about
This is the full changelog of HealthVault for Windows 8, with the latest version 188.8.131.52 bringing some minor bug fixes that I suspect were affecting resolution, here’s what was changed in V.184.108.40.206:
- Track and chart your child’s height
- Track and chart blood glucose measurements
- Customize your Home screen to show only the health & fitness tiles you use
- Pin your health & fitness tiles to the Start screen
Use Health Vault in Windows 8 to watch over your health
To remind you, the Windows 8 HealthVault app is a fitness app that will help you set health goals, track progress, and much more other features, such as managing your weight, track your exercise, steps, and diet, as well as monitoring your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose. And this isn’t an app to be used only by you, as the whole family can join.
You can see trends of your activity, to watch whether you have been consuming less calories, doing more exercises and whatnot. I was always curious to see whether these fitness and health apps truly help people, but judging by the good and big number of ratings in the Windows Store, I realize that it is indeed helpful.
