The app will use the static information stored in HealthKit as well as workout data stored in HealthKit while using third party workout apps, Apple workout apps or the heart/work iOS App on the iPhone or the Apple Watch.

By using heart/work iOS App you agree to provide location information to calculate contextual visualisations and to provide access to your information stored in HealthKit.

The heart/work iOS app collects the results of workout data stored in HealthKit on your iPhone or Apple Watch in addition to location and weather data. The data is used to create visual representations of the workout done within its environmental context. Additionally the data might be used to create visualisations and/or animations of several workout sessions completed over time to visualize progression over time. The data used is not limited solely to workouts done with the heart/work app but might also include other workouts completed and stored within HealthKit on your iPhone or Apple Watch. Additionally the data collected might be used to create a better understanding of wellbeing and its relation to heart rate data, resting heart rate and heart rate variability. This might include sharing the collected data with other 3rd parties for research purposes or in form of licensing the use of the data.
