Microsoft is joining the mHealth revolution with the Bing Health & Fitness app. Available as free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace, the application is still in beta, so you may experience few glitches here and there. Though we haven’t heard anyone complaining thus far.
Featuring various color-coded sections such as Today, Fitness, Nutrition, Medical, and general News – Bing Health & Fitness is rather easy to use. You will need a Microsoft Account to sync the service to the desktop companion.
The Bing Health & Fitness app helps you stay on top of health and fitness trends and provides the tools you need to support a healthy lifestyle. Designed for Windows Phone, the Health & Fitness app brings together great fitness, nutrition and health content, along with trackers, tools and other features. Set your daily calorie goal, record what you eat and get nutritional information for over 300,000 foods. Choose from hundreds of workouts and exercises with step-by-step instructions, photos and video. Use the GPS tracker to record your time, distance, pace and calories burned while you walk, run, bike and do other activities. Enter symptoms to get information on possible health conditions with the Interactive Symptom Checker. Keep your tracker data synced across your Windows 8 devices.
We’re glad to see Microsoft joining the mHealth market as they definitely have the scale to bring these services to the mainstream consumer…
