Cycle Tracker, an app that allows women to track their menstrual cycles, is now available on the Apple Watch. While limited cycle tracking has been part of Apple's iOS Health app since 2015, with the release of iOS 13 and WatchOS 6, Cycle Tracker is now a separate discrete sector within the health app on the iPhone and a separate app on the Apple Watch ,  You can now enter and view data directly on your watch to provide various health benefits to help with family planning and reproductive health problems, irregularities, and symptoms.
Think of an app that records your periods: apps can record your heart rate, what you eat, how many calories you've burned while reading your phone on the couch, and how many steps you've taken to go every day , Tracking your periods is just another health-related metric that can come in handy, even if you're not focusing on details that go beyond marking an X in the kitchen calendar and then exhale after you finish. Cycle Tracking information, which is also displayed via the redesigned Health App on iOS 1
Cycle Tracker is great for tracking fertility so you can record statistics such as basal body temperature or the results of an ovulation test. The app uses this information to create a fertility window – the few days in the month when you're most likely to get pregnant. The more information you provide the app, the more accurate the predictions can be. Continuously using Cycle Tracker gives you more accurate statistics and predictions about your cycle, such as: For example, the average length and average history of your periods. This can help you identify a health problem if the results change over time. However, be aware of Apple's warning not to use the fertile windows for contraception or to diagnose a health condition. However, it is great for gathering information and sharing with health professionals.
When you set up Cycle Tracker, you can enter data about your cycle history, including the day your last period began, its typical length, and the length of your cycle. You can enter this data manually or confirm data that already existed in the health app or in third-party applications that you may already be using, such as: Clue, Glow or a variety of others.
The fertile window is displayed Be the six days most likely to be fertile due to your entered data or a positive ovulation test result. The fertile window is based on a traditional calendar and is calculated by subtracting 13 days from the estimated start date of the next cycle. When you enter a positive ovulation test result, the fertility prediction is adjusted so that the fifth day of the fertility window matches the first positive ovulation test result in a cycle.
