Apple has planned to start the implementation of a new series of heart health resources in the month of February to support users’ health journeys in the U.S.
Marking February as “Heart Month,” Apple has started to offer custom compilations across its services.
Apple’s chief operating officer Jeff Williams said that this new feature will truly benefit customers tracking their everyday health.
“We’re strong believers at Apple that if you can empower people with information about their health, you can change the trajectory of their well-being,” he said. “Keeping your heart healthy requires a holistic approach — something we’ve focused on since the first generation of Apple Watch with the inclusion of activity and workout apps, in addition to heart rate. Today, people of all ages can use our products and services to learn more about staying healthy, work toward their personal goals, and have a lot of fun along the way.”
Below are the following Apple products and services that will be taking part in Heart Month and how.
