Apple has shared five new videos on YouTube today that promote healthy and active lifestyle choices, emphasizing the importance of a regular sleeping pattern, proper nutrition, taking moments to calm your mind, and staying active. The fifth video explains how these healthy habits are all connected.


Apple Health - Sleep promotes the natural rhythm of going to bed at the same time and getting enough hours of sleep each night. Apple introduced a new Wake Alarm in the Clock app on iOS 10 that, when enabled, reminds you when it is time to sleep, tracks how many hours you slept, and provides detailed sleep analysis.


Apple Health - Nutrition is centered upon eating healthy foods, and being aware of how much food we eat. The video emphasizes the importance of eating more real foods than junk foods. Apple says nutrition is not about eating perfectly, but rather about making better food choices "one bite at a time."


Apple Health - Mindfulness explains how the human mind is not wired to be "always on," and encourages finding a few moments to take a few deep breathes to help eliminate day-to-day stresses.


Apple Health - Activity is centered upon "sitting less, moving more, and getting some exercise" by "squeezing in a minute here and a minute there." Apple says being active does not explicitly require going to the gym, but rather simply finding enjoyable activities that get you moving throughout the day.


Apple Health - Everything's Connected ties the first four videos together by explaining how small lifestyle changes can become healthy habits when you see how they connect. The video recaps the importance of four key areas that can improve your health: sleep, nutrition, activity, and mindfulness.

I also love them and I really like s effort to push into the fitness market. I really hope they get more and more sensors into the watch and make more and more videos like these, it would be amazing:)

Future Apple Watch:

"It's pretty hot today. You are somewhat hydrated. Looks like you need a glass of water".

"You'll need 10 units of insulin in 30 minutes. I'll remind you shortly before the time comes to give you a chance to get your stuff ready".

"I've noticed your blood pressure has been up a little over the past week at times when your heart rate isn't. It might be a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor. I'll remind you a few times about this".

"Your seem to be under stress lately. Here's a link to Apple's site with some videos about managing stress".

"You should eat soon, before you die of hunger, fo-shiz".

I really really love these! This is Tim Cook's Apple.

Health is not only a good focus to have for its obvious benefits, but it's a very good business to be in. Health nuts will spend 300% more on a meal than your average person. They also buy gadgets and love to track and be motivated using technology. These are stereotypical Apple customers. I like where Tim is taking the company.

Apple's marketing team is in overdrive. Unfortunately I wasn't a fan of any videos shown at the keynote. I usually am a fan of the keynote videos.

Quite like the style of the vids (really like the Don't Blink one too).

Good to see them pushing health. One look around the average British street and it's scary to see how many people are overweight and worse obese. Especially when it's younger children. Always reminds me of Wall-E and the people just floating around in their chairs with everything at arms length.

The global trend is not good (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-35933691) so anything that can get people thinking about healthy habits is positive. FitBits, Apple Watches, Pokemon Go - whatever it takes to get people off couches and active and eating healthier.
