Being a fitness freak, I make sure to keep a track of my health. The stock Health app allows me to track data such as steps walked, calories burned, and heart rate info with ease. As a result, I’m able to remain healthy. What about you?
In order to ensure I don’t lose the health data, I make a backup of it. Right now, the only way do it is to export Health app data. In case you switch devices, the only option you have is to restore from backup to get back all your data.
Should you back up to your Mac make sure to encrypt the backup or else no health data will be restored.
Below are the two ways through which you can easily export your health data. Let’s find out!
