Health Coaching,  Easy?

Apple Said to Be Developing an AI Heath Coach

Codenamed Quartz, the monthly subscription service will guide users through their exercise, diet, and sleep-related goals.

Apple is reportedly working on bringing AI to its devices to coach users through their health goals. Bloomberg chief correspondent Mark Gurman, known best for his reliable Apple reporting, wrote Tuesday that the Cupertino-based company was developing a new bid to convert and maintain users interested in health-related features. 

Referred to internally as Quartz, the service offers users tips and motivation for exercise, eating habits, and sleep. Quartz will pair user data gleaned from the Apple Watch with its custom AI to “make suggestions and create coaching programs tailored to specific users,” according to Gurman’s sources. Users must pay a monthly subscription fee to use Quartz, which will have its own exclusive app. 

Though Apple declined to comment when Gurman asked about the service, insiders said the company will likely roll out Quartz sometime in 2024. (Like virtually any release window, this is always subject to change.) In the interim, Apple is expected to introduce an iPad version of the iPhone Health app under iPadOS 17 this fall. The app will allow users to visualize their health data in larger formats, which are valuable for spotting long-term trends and reading electrocardiogram (ECG) results. Users can also start tracking their emotions in either version of the app by answering mood-related questions and comparing how they’ve felt over longer periods. ...'
