Use the Health app on your iPhone or iPod touch

The Health app gathers health data from your iPhone, Apple Watch, and apps that you already use, so you can view all your progress in one convenient place.

Health automatically counts your steps, walking, and running distances. And, if you have an Apple Watch, it automatically tracks your Activity data. You can also enter information into a Health category or get data from any of your favorite apps or devices that are compatible with Health.


Set up your Health Profile

  1. Open the Health app and tap the Summary tab.

  4. Add your information, like height, weight, and age. 
  5. Tap Done.

Your Apple Watch uses your personal information to calculate how many calories you burn and more. You can choose to share this information with other apps and it's kept up to date across all your devices.

With iOS 14, after setting up your Health Profile, you can review your Health Checklist initially from the Summary tab. The Health Checklist lets you see and enable available health features. You can also tap your profile picture in the upper-right, then tap Health Checklist to access it.
