I'm assuming that this is a work in progress. Is it supposed to pull its statistics from other apps? It doesn't appear that I can enter my own data (ht, wt, etc) within the app. I created my Medical ID (which isn't much, since I have no health issues) which is supposed to be available from my lock screen via the "Emergency" tap point. On my 6+ with iOS 8.1.1, I don't have that.

So, I have to wait for more apps that are able to communicate with the Health app. I'll have to wait for MapMyRide to get onboard. Right now, the Health app is simply a pedometer for me.

Health App is really meant to be a "hub" for other accessories and apps. Apple really isn't very clear about this point.

I did find a way to set my ht, wt, blood type, sex, age in it. I've forgotten how I did that. I've also gotten it to share data with MapMyRide+ and vice-versa.
