It looks like the Bing team is not yet done with Windows Phone, as at around 3 AM this morning, they pushed out their latest addition, Health & Fitness to Windows Phone 8 devices. The app of course is a mobile version of the popular Windows 8/RT version and so far, it looks great.
However, as with the recently released Bing Food & Drink, this app is in beta. Basically, that means it’s not yet finished, and some parts may not be working. In fact, Microsoft this time explicitly stated this in the app’s description, so you should be forewarned. Having said that, it’s damn nice, especially if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle in 2014.
The app itself is super-fast to launch and it has various color-coded sections based on Today, Fitness, Nutrition, Medical, and general News. Users can also sign into their Microsoft Account to sync the service to the desktop companion, and vice versa, though we have yet to try it (that is probably one of the beta features).
From the app description:
“The Bing Health & Fitness app helps you stay on top of health and fitness trends and provides the tools you need to support a healthy lifestyle. Designed for Windows Phone, the Health & Fitness app brings together great fitness, nutrition and health content, along with trackers, tools and other features. Set your daily calorie goal, record what you eat and get nutritional information for over 300,000 foods. Choose from hundreds of workouts and exercises with step-by-step instructions, photos and video. Use the GPS tracker to record your time, distance, pace and calories burned while you walk, run, bike and do other activities. Enter symptoms to get information on possible health conditions with the Interactive Symptom Checker. Keep your tracker data synced across your Windows 8 devices.”
It’s a great looking app and we’re finally glad to see it land on Windows Phone to match the growing Bing suite.
Pick up Bing Health & Fitness beta here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only.
