How To Get Healthy With Your Apple Watch

Apple Watches are one of the smartest wearable technologies that have ever been manufactured in the world. This tiny watch can perform some things that some human beings would have found difficult to do.

Among some of these attributes given to the Apple Watch is its ability to help you keep healthy. Healthy?? Yeah, you read it right, that tiny thing on your hand can help you stay healthy.

The Apple Watch can monitor your heart rate and some other vital health information; some of which could cause some serious health conditions when not look at properly.

But how exactly does this happen, well I am going to show you exactly how to get healthy with your Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch Series 4, 5, and 6 comes along with an ECG app that can take an Electrocardiogram of your heart rhythm. On normal, you need to visit the hospital and pay some amount of money before you can receive an ECG.

How To Get Healthy With Your Apple Watch

Monitor your heart rate

The Apple Watch comes along with an already existing Heart Rate app which can be used to measure your heart rate.

Also found in the app is the feature to display your current, your resting, your average, and specific heart rates. If the feature in the Heart Rate app is not enough, you also download other third-party apps to check your heart rate.

Track your menstrual cycle

Also installed on your Apple Watch is the Cycle Tracking app which is used to check menstrual cycles. Before you can use this app, you need to set it up. To set up your cycle, open the Health app on your iPhone and tap on Browse > Cycle > Tracking >Get Started.

Once you are done setting it up, you then need to enter the day you had your last period, the duration it lasts, and the length each of your cycle’s last. The app will then perform the calculations and alert you when it’s due. Other controllable options are Period Prediction, Period Notification, Log Fertility, Log Sexual Activity, etc.

Wash your hands for 20 seconds

This feature is not supposed to shock you because of the times we live in now. As the popular saying goes: “we don’t live in normal times”. If you have Apple watchOS 7 and above, Apple has added this feature to help you protect yourself against this virus.

The timer detects when you are washing your hands under running water and then gives you the timer. You can simply go to Settings and turn Handwashing Timer on.

Measure your blood oxygen level

This feature is available on Apple Watch Series 6 and watchOS 7 and later. The app measures to see if the amount of oxygen entering your brain is enough or not.

This feature can be turned on by opening the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, tap on the Settings option for Blood Oxygen, from there turn on Blood Oxygen Measurements.


With the above things you can do with your Apple Watch, there is no doubt that the Apple Watch is one of the smartest watches in the world.
