Oculus’ fitness tracker is coming to Apple Health
Oculus has announced that you will soon be able to view Oculus Move data on devices other than your VR headset. The tool will allow users to track their VR workouts alongside their real-world exercise using a couple of methods.
The first option is to use the Oculus mobile app to sync the statistics between your VR headset and your iOS or Android mobile device. Any goals which you have set will be transferred alongside workout history.
Users of iOS devices will also have the option to sync their Oculus Move data with their Apple Health app. If you opt-in to the connection, your VR fitness analytics will automatically transfer to your iPhone, iPad or Apple watch.
Oculus Move is Quest’s fitness tracker, which can give you statistics on your workout, such as how long you’ve been exercising and how many calories it estimates that you have burned. At the moment, these analytics are only accessible via the Oculus Move app in VR.
The new exercise data syncing feature is due to be released next month. Oculus stated that it was looking into further integrations with other fitness tracking platforms, though no timeline has been given for this.
