SAN FRANCISCO, November 04, 2013, 2:33 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Available free today, steps + sleep is an app engineered specifically for the iPhone 5s, taking advantage of the new capabilities in Apple’s new M7 processor to deliver the world’s best steps and sleep tracking app, all with negligible incremental battery drain.
Consistent daily activity and sufficient sleep are two of the most important factors in ensuring our long-term health. Simply by increasing awareness and making small changes in our day-to-day lives, we can decrease our risk of heart disease and long-term ailments, increase our odds of living longer, and improve our overall health and happiness.
While many of us make resolutions to do better, it’s easy to fall out of the habit: our wearable device runs out of battery, we forget to sync the data, or if we’re using an app or spreadsheet, we miss a couple days and lose interest.
Steps + sleep is designed to fit seamlessly into your life. No manual input or expensive wearable to buy, just download the free app and carry your phone with you, and it runs in the background and takes care of the rest. You can see your daily steps right from your iPhone’s home screen, set targets for daily sleep and steps, and begin a streak of days you’ve accomplished your goal.
Additionally, using the chronos points system we’ve developed that takes into account both your activity and sleep, you can get a quick sense of how you’re doing for the week: anything over 100 for the week, and you’re doing great. Anything over 125, and you’re really crushing it.
Steps + sleep is developed by Chronos Mobile Technologies, which founded by Dylan Keil and Charlie Kubal. Official advisors include Tristan Walker (former Head of Biz Dev at foursquare) and David Michaels (former VP of Engineering at mint.com). The beta version of chronos, the flagship product, launched onstage as one of the TechCrunch Disrupt Finalists in September 2012, and chronos 2.0 launched in August ’13. Since then they’ve collected and analyzed billions of location data points. Chronos has raised an initial seed round and is based out of offices in San Francisco’s Mission District
