If these health apps help you in some way, good for you, and more power to you. But honestly, I feel like they’re a bit of a scam. Firstly, yes I have a Huawei. But I have owned other phones, and the health apps are all equally useless. I already spend hours of my day staring at social media, feeling bad about myself because I don’t make green smoothies and have daily runs. Do I really need a dedicated app to tell me I need to drink more water, bestie, and monitor every step I take? Every time I’m swamped with work, I pick up my phone and the pedometer at the bottom mocks me. Yes I know I’ve only taken five steps today! Cut me some slack! The function of logging your water intake and meals at best feels like a ploy to keep people looking at their phones, and at worst is a gateway into disordered eating. Finally, it’s not even functional. Shockingly, sometimes I go for walks without my phone, and I’ve never once remembered to log my yoga sessions. The courses are also a bit of a joke. One is titled “relaxation”, and its first recommendation is breathing. Thanks to Huawei Health, my anxiety is cured.
