HealthKit

At WWDC, Apple introduced HealthKit, a system that organizes your relevant health metrics from smart devices, including Nike+ gadgets. The idea is to create one space where you can see all of your health, fitness, and diet data.

The Health app

HealthKit powers a corresponding app called, simply, Health. The app, which comes with iOS 8, shows data about your activity levels, blood pressure, calorie burn, and sleep activity from your health and fitness devices.

Other health devices

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.
