San Francisco Business Times

Mountain View-based Livongo Health has added a new integration to its platform and mobile app serving people with chronic conditions, such as pre-diabetes, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Now, users will get notifications, behavior health “nudges” and other health information straight to their smartwatches thanks to a new partnership with wearable heavyweights Apple, Fitbit and Samsung. Steps data from the smartwatches can also be synced to the Livongo app, letting the platform’s algorithm provide more personalized insights related to exercise and general activity, the company said. The smartphone integration also sends notifications for Livongo’s “health challenges” straight to the wearable. These five-day habit building programs provide members with daily educational information on nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management.
