add pluse and o2 monitoring and IOS 8 Health App interation

 I would love to be able to monitor my pulse and o2 levels like Withings does or better.  Having Asthma all my life it is something that I really would like to be able to have.  Also I would love to be able to have my Touch interact with Apples IOS 8 Health app

Any possible way this can happen?

Hi Neil,

Is there any update on the syncing data with the health app on ios?  is this something that you guys are definitely going to do or not?

I would love to beta test. My email is  I am currently using the Walgreens activity tracker and I love it.

Hi Jeannie, we've added you to the beta tester list. We'll be in touch if we're in need of further beta testing. 

Hello. I have the Walgreens Striv Advanced with the heart rate monitor. Is there anything in the works for monitoring pulse O2? Thank you.
I'd like to beta test any hardware / software updates as well. So far, i find the Touch more accurate than my more expensive monitor (Basis Peak) and if your attention to quality contines, I would gladly exchange the Peak for a Touch with pulse monitoring abilities. The ability to measure bicycling activiity is also on my wishlist because it is easy on my aging , > 60 yo, joints. I'm sure the expanding population of Boomers would purchase this device for that very reason, making it a profitable marketing feature.

Neil how are we coming with this looking forward in beta testing this soon.

Neil, still looking for an update

We're currently drawing up plans for a device capable of monitoring heart rate. You'll like see our hear about this sometime in the new year. Stay tuned!


Hi Richard, we are in the process of developing a device capable of monitoring your heart rate. At the moment, I can't disclose any more information than that. It's not looking too promising in regards to the iOS 8 Health app link since Apple basically requires us to hand over our data to them if we do allow for a link. Syncing data to the Health app is one thing, but giving Apple ownership of that data is a whole other can of worms. Stay tuned for the heart rate monitoring device!

I've put you on the list Rich. Thanks for contacting us with this request! 



When we do develop a device with these capabilities (which will mean a complete re-design of hardware) I'm sure we can offer you a beta test device. If you give me your email, I'll put you down on the feature request log as a beta test requester for the heart rate monitor feature. Just keep in mind, it could be a while before we have a device with these capabilities. 



I look forward to beta testing it for you please keep in touch

Richard, we'll let you know if we're in need of beta testers.
