VO₂ Max - Cardio Fitness 4+

Widget and Watch Complication

Bernhard Hering

Designed for iPhone

    • $1.99

Description

The value VO₂ max indicates the maximum amount of oxygen that can be absorbed by the body during maximum workload.

With a high VO₂ max value, the risk of cardiovascular diseases decreases.

The VO₂ max app always shows the current value directly on the Apple Watch. This app supports all complications and the Apple Watch becomes an absolute fitness gadget.


This is how it works:
The Apple Watch can estimate your VO₂ max and records the predicted VO₂ maximum if you take a brisk hike, walk or run outdoors with a continuous heart rate measurement in the Workout app for at least 20 minutes.

Important:
1. It has to be a walk or a run to provide enough heart rate data for the prediction algorithm to work.
2. The workout app must be used with GPS enabled.
3. This app must be connected to the Apple Health app so that the recorded data can be displayed in the watch app, the complication or on the iPhone.

With iOS 14, you can display the widget on the home screen of your iPhone to see the latest measurement directly.
This app only works with an Apple Watch Series 3 or later!

Useful.

December simple and may only have one simple function but it does it well. I bought it because I wanted to track my V02 and while the apple health app does this already, I wanted a watch complication and I purchased this app to give me that functionality. At first it didn’t appear to work but it turned out I had to launch the watch app before the complication option appeared.

To be clear this app does not compute VO2 max, it simply displays the data that apple calculates using your watch.

To my surprise the app also sends me a push notification each time apple computes a new VO2 Max calculation which is a nice bonus I did not expect.

Minus one star because I contacted the developer and they did not get back to me after 2 weeks.

Constant exercise companion

I love this app. I consider vO2 max perhaps the best indicator of overall aerobic fitness, and this app allows me to see how, overall, I am doing over time. It’s basic, sure, but it’s totally reliable, I don’t have to start and stop, and it also shows where I stand in my age range. The only change I’d like is to show data for more/longer than only a year.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review! The app does only work on the following basis
1. It has to be a walk or a run to provide enough heart rate data for the prediction algorithm to work.
2. The workout app must be used with GPS enabled.
3. This app must be connected to the Apple Health app so that the recorded data can be displayed in the watch app, the complication or on the iPhone.

Have you checked all those? Otherwise I will be happy to assist you furthermore.
