Apple didn't expand onstage at WWDC  on exactly which fitness and gadgets will plug into HealthKit, but we anticipate that the Fitbit, shown above, will be one of them. Stay tuned to CNET for more information about HealthKit.

Mayo Clinic integration

Apple is partnering with the Mayo Clinic to assist you with your health needs. If the Health app tells you that your blood pressure or other metrics aren't healthy, it'll help connect you with a doctor to get care.
