Apple's M7 co-processor, which is designed with fitness apps in mind, can now be put to work via Nike+ Move.
The Nike+ Move application is the first to take advantage of the M7 chip in Apple's iPhone 5S. The co-processor records movement, while the Nike application analyzes the data, converts the data into readable form, and measures it in terms of NikeFuel. Throughout the day, people can use their phone to see how close they are to reaching their fitness goals.
Nike showed off the application in September at Apple's iPhone event. Apple indicated at that time that the application would be one of the first to take advantage of its M7 co-processor, but promised that other fitness-related apps would be coming to the App Store.
The Nike+ Move app is free.
