Siri Shortcuts Help Apple Users Practice Healthy Lifestyles
Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”
For Apple users, health and fitness routines just got a little easier with more and more apps offering Siri Shortcuts with iOS 12. The new shortcuts allow for performance stats in real time and help make fitness training easier. For example, if you’re skiing, one can say “Hey Siri, let’s ski!” and will then be able to get information about the speed, elevation drops, and distance whe”Hey Siri, how was my run?”
In the HomeCourt database, users are able to ask Siri to start and dribble workout and Siri can now provide proactive suggestions for runners using the Nike Run Club based simply off of the runner’s habits while running.
Many third-party health devices have began including Siri Shortcuts in their apps so that data retrieval may be easier for the user.
The Siri Shortcuts are being used to watch diet, monitor sleep patterns, breaking bad habits, and reminding users to take daily medications. The option to customize a full fitness routine using Siri Shortcuts is also available.
A how-to guide for using the Shortcuts app can be found here.
