Apple Watch

2018 was the first full year I used my Apple watch. I use my watch to track activities, workouts, meditation and sleep. In this report I want to give you some insight in my personal data.

The apps I use for this purpose:

Some insights in my personal data of 2018 and 2019

1. Meditation



Average time spent meditation: 20 minutes per day. Thanks to Headspace.


The Apple Health app refused to capture my Headspace meditation minutes. I meditated 365 days in 2019, on average between 10-15 minutes per day.My current run streak: 1029 days.

2. Steps per day



Average 14.342 steps per day. February and March are high, because I was training for the Rotterdam marathon (early April).


A slight decline compared to 2018, but only 428 steps less per day on average.

3. Walking and running


walking and running

I ran and walked on average 11,5 kilometers in 2018, is 4,197 kilometers in total. The Health app does not split walking and running, and the activity app does not give an annual overview (improvement opportunity).


4051 kilometers running and walking in 2019.

4. Workouts



62 minutes per day average on workouts. Mainly running and walking, some swimming in January.


5. Resting Heart Rate


heart rate

My average resting heart rate in 2018 was 53 bpm. Small peak in August, maybe because I was traveling in Chile and Brazil.


6. Stand Hours



A stand hour is an hour in which I move (stand, walk) for at least one minute. I meticulously follow the instructions on my watch.


7. Sleep



I slept 7 hours and 5 minutes per night, a little bit longer on winter nights.
