New Knomee version with rest heart rate

The new version 1.7 of Knomee is now available on the Apple store !
This is a minor release, that fixes a few bugs such as display bugs on older iPhones. The key changes are:

  • Better display in the “chart view” mode (when you swipe down or click on the eye button). The horizontal scale has been improved so that it displays more information when you zoom in/out. A vertical scale has been added to give you a better sense of your data. If you are using the “tech mode” (see options) you will also see three points in the future (forecasts) that Knomee shows as an illustration of its forecasting ability. This is a “work in progress” feature, hence it is only accessible for those brave enough to try the “tech mode”.
  • You may now hide / recall quests ! this is actually a very useful feature since you will see that it is not really convenient to track more than 4 or 5 quests at the same time. In the edit mode, if you switch the “hide” button, the quest will disappear from your set of quests … have no fear, you can get it back anytime in the quest library section. All “hidden quests” are visible in the “library” list. If you select one, it will return into your app as a regular quest that you can track anytime.
  • Last, the HealthKit interface was extended so that you can import the “rest heart rate”. This is computed by a number of devices, including Apple Watch. Previously, Knomee was (and is still) able to import the average heart rate, which is a good proxy for how much effort/exercise your heart went through in the past 24 hours. The rest rate is quite interesting for many quests, since the “rest rate” is a good proxy for how well your heart is doing. You will find very soon that the “rest heart rate” is a great addition to the “automatic” imported trackers in Knomee (steps, weight, heart rate, sleep).

We will continue to continuously improve the main screens, so please keep sending us your feedbacks and insights. Our next step is too improve the plain english messages that are pushed by Knomee (as notifications or within the app), to make them more informative and easier to read at the same time.
