Wearables and Medical Device Integrations Overview¶
PHC receives data from a growing variety of wearables and medical devices. The device-generated data is stored by PHC in a secure, LifeOmic-owned account. The wearable user configures one of the mobile LIFE apps that integrate with PHC. These apps include: Precision Outcomes, LIFE Extend, and LIFE Fasting Tracker.
Once a subject consents, their data replicates to any PHC projects owned by the health organization. PHC users can then view this data with the PHC Subject Viewer. Precision Outcomes has a default view for the subjects to view their wearable data. However, a PHC user can customize the layout of the data displayed to the subjects in their project in their Precision Outcomes app. LIFE Extend and LIFE Fasting Tracker users have a set view for the wearable user.
Wearables that Integrate with PHC¶

The complete list of device integrations is growing. Contact LifeOmic for current information.
PHC supports a maximum of one active wearable integration (including HealthKit) at a time for each data type.
Users with multiple apps writing the same data, such as sleep records, will duplicate data in Life Extend (LX).
If a user wishes to discontinue syncing data, they must toggle OFF data syncing in their mobile app settings. Selecting "Permanently Delete Account" in the settings will disconnect your device and stop syncing data. Simply deleting the mobile app will not stop the syncing of their data to PHC.
For more information about enabling, syncing, and troubleshooting wearables, see Set up wearables to sync automatically with LIFE Extend and LIFE Fasting Tracker.
Users can review what record types are synced by accessing their Health app, tapping the Sources tab, and selecting the LifeOmic mobile app.
