With Health, Apple gives you a single repository for all your fitness and medical data.
The Health app for iPhone lets you compile data from many of your most-used health apps so that you have a single view all of your health info, be it miles cycled, hours slept, or flights of stairs climbed. What’s more, depending on your privacy settings, you can sync from Health to any other app, and back, so everything stays up to date and you stay on top of your fitness and medical data!
