Body Weight Tracker

The Body Weight & Height Tracker provides the ability to track two of the most basic health metrics. It also computes the BMI (Body Mass Index) value on the fly and stores this with your diary entry as well.

Diary Entry Input

Using this tracker is very easy – you just dial in your weight and height using the horizontal picker wheels and the app will calculate your BMI for you.

One thing you will want to do is customize this tracker to your personal needs. Since our app is used by a very wide range of people, you can imagine that weight and height vary greatly within our user base. Rather than make a picker wheel that goes from 80 to 500 lbs, we decided to give you the ability to customize the range of each wheel yourself. You only need to do this one time when you first use this tracker.

When you tap on the information icon in the entry cell, it will open the Tracker Customization window. Here you can select between imperial (lbs & ft/in) or metric (kg & m) units. You can then use the range sliders to adjust the picker wheels to a range that best suits your needs and goals.

You also have the option of displaying an additional level of precision on the weight picker if you so choose. With this option turned off, weights will be shown as whole numbers when using imperial units and with a single decimal place when using metric. Turning this option on will allow you to select your weight to the tenth of a lbs or a hundredth of a kg.

Summary Report Graph Samples

Body Weight vs Time

This graph shows your weight history in Blue. This is then overlaid with the reported pain intensity levels for the same period, shown in red.

You can use this graph to look for any degree of correlation between your pain and body weight changes.

Pain Level vs Weight

This chart aggregates the data from all Diary Entries during the reporting period that included a Body Weight and Pain Intensity level tracker. For each range of weight values, the graph shows the range of pain levels reported and the average of those reportings as the green horizontal line.

This type of graph can be used to infer correlations between your weight and pain intensity, although it typically would require a significant number of body weight entries per reporting period to provide a meaningful analysis.

BMI vs Time

Pain Level vs BMI

This chart aggregates the data from all Diary Entries during the reporting period that included a Body Weight and Pain Intensity level tracker. For each range of BMI values, the graph shows the range of pain levels reported and the average of those reportings as the green horizontal line.

This type of graph can be used to infer correlations between your BMI and pain intensity. For example, it could help point to recent weight gain as an explanation of recent increases in pain.
