The app has many features to help keep track of your health. These include the step counter using M7 and M8 coprocessors, route tracker using GPS to track your jogging and cycling routes, and fitness tracker for your workouts, such as push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and pull-ups, using various sensors. In addition, you can manage your body water content or food intake based on data on calories and other nutrients. In coordination with Withings, the app also enables you to monitor your body weight, blood pressure, and heart rate.
