Your Health Journal is a quick overview of all your measurements and blood pressure readings, along with events that may have impacted your results.
You can see your Health Journal by tapping on the gray My data icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Use it to track trends and changes in your wellbeing throughout the day or from one day to the next, and see what might be causing them. Alcohol, workouts, meditations — any event you tag or track in your feed will show up here for analysis.
What does the calendar in the preview show?
The calendar in the preview shows the measurements that best reflect what was going on with your body every day for the past week.
It’s the best tool to use if you want a long-term overview of changes in your wellbeing.
If I took several measurements in one day, which one shows up in my calendar?
We pick the measurement that best reflects how you felt that day based on an algorithm that takes into account several factors — the key ones are measurement quality and time of day.
High-quality measurements taken when you first wake up are most likely to show up here.
The later in the day you take a measurement and the lower its quality, the less likely it is to show up in your calendar as your most relevant measurement for the day.
If you wear an Apple Watch, the algorithm will prioritize measurements you take with the camera or the Breathe/Mindfulness app over automatic measurements your Watch takes.
Why are there non-measurement events in my journal and where do they come from?
We add events to your journal as they happen throughout the day. If you have measurements in the morning, afternoon, and evening, these tags can help you see what may have triggered changes in your results throughout the day.
We will add your workouts and meditations automatically if we find them in your data from any apps and gadgets you’ve synced — they’ll show up both here and in your feed.
And we’ll also include any events you tag in your main feed here.
How do I add more events to my Health Journal?
Just tag any event you want to track in your main feed — tap the plus sign in the top right corner to make it happen.
Any event you tag there will show up in your Health Journal as well — the timestamp will match the time you added the events to your feed.
Can I delete measurements and other data from my Health Journal?
Yes, just long-tap on the measurement or message you want to delete — it will pull up a window that will let you delete the data.
Deleting a message in your journal will also delete it from your feed.
Important: only Premium users can delete measurements.
