Is the iPhone built in health app the best one to use to monitor my Apple Watch readings or are there better ones on the App Store?
Also, can I use the iPad (wifi only) to access the health info from the watch?
I noticed the iPad also has a health app.
Can I do it without using iCloud?

I’ve never felt the desire to use anything other than the iPhone’s Health App (if not the Watch itself).

The Health app on the iPad synchronizes the data via iCloud, so it’s pretty useless without iCloud. Not sure why you’d want to have an iPhone, a Watch, and an iPad but not have iCloud … ?

If you move or train a bit I think Healtfit is a great phone app. It arranges and analyses well phone data. One time purchase has most of functionality, there is an optional subscription if you want to support further the developer.

Heart Analyzer can be a good plus in presenting data.

The authors of Heart Analyzer made another interesting app, Health Hive, that compares your Health data with similar demographics. Only problem the free version had many limitations in one of last updates.
