Both services merge health data from a range of fitness apps and devices in one place, bringing together information from various sleep trackers, blood pressure monitors, smart scales, running watches and activity monitors. In the future this data could be transferred to your doctor for a more complete picture of your health.
Marco Suvilaakso, Director of Product Management at Polar said:
“It made perfect sense to us to ensure these services are compatible with Google Fit and Apple HealthKit – two important one-stop ecosystems for everything health and fitness.
“We're sure our users will value this additional connectivity as they use Polar Loop, Polar M400, Polar V800 or Polar Beat."
