Your Health Data

If you allow TennisKeeper to access your Apple Heath data, with your permission, TennisKeeper will read the entries for Steps, Walking + Running Distance, Active Energy and Heart Rate if such data exist. Such data can be created by your Apple Watch or other digital activity trackers that can determine your steps count, distance traveled, calories and heart rate.

TennisKeeper will read, aggregate, and correlate your Apple health data entries to your activities based on the timestamp. For example, if you have logged a singles match on 06/01/2016 from 1:00 - 2:00pm, TennisKeeper will use this timestamp to aggregate the steps you took during this time, the distance you covered on the court, the calories burned and your average heart rate. These will be displayed in the Activities Log entry.

With this automation, you will now have a much better understanding of your performance using your existing Apple Health data: Are you moving well on the court? Is your cardiovascular fitness good?

When you start an activity from your Apple Watch, or when you save an activity from your iPhone, with your permission, the activity will be added to your Apple Health as a Workout session. If you delete the activity, the Workout session will be automatically removed.
