iPhone Health App: How Do I View My Health App Data?

May 21, 2019

Viewing Data in the Health App

When you run the Health app, there are four views available. You can choose the view by tapping one of the four buttons at the bottom of the screen:

  • Today
  • Health Data
  • Sources
  • Medical ID

The selected view is highlighted in red. Your Health app data can be viewed in the Today view or the Health Data view.

Today View

TodayTap on Today at the bottom of the screen in the Health app and you will see all of the data that has been collected for the current day. You can view data for any other day by selecting the date at the top of the screen. Tap the month in the top left corner of the screen, and scroll up or down in the calendar until you find the date that you would like to view. You can return to today at any time, by tapping the Today button again.

Any data type that has been specified as a Favorite will be displayed at the top of the screen (to learn how to make any data type into a favorite, please see How to Add a Favorite below). The rest of the data for that day is shown by category in the following order: Activity, Mindfulness, Sleep, Nutrition, Body Measurements, Heart, Reproductive Health, Results and Vitals. Any category that has no data for the selected date will not be displayed.

For each data type, the summary for that day will be shown. Tapping on any specific data will open up the details screen for that data type.

See our blog post: iPhone Health App: How Do I View Detailed Health App Data? for information on viewing detailed data in the Health app.
