    Hey all,

    Popping in to let you know that the new and improved Gaia GPS Apple Watch app (with HealthKit integration) has just moved into Beta and we are looking for Beta Testers!

    More info in the main thread here.

    EDIT: The Apple Watch app is live!

    Yes, I'd like to be able to sync the Polar H7 with Gaia.

    This would be really a nice feature if a recorded track profile provides the additional info on steps, heart rate etc.

    Please, please, please add the Apple HealthKit integration!  A good hike is already a satisfying experience, a hike with stats from Gaia is even more delightful, and a hike with health data too would just be stupendous!!!

    It would be great to have HealthKit included with Gaia's app like so many other major health relates tech companies do - like Strava and Polar. You already have done the difficult part of convincing people to collect their data (times, distances, elevation change, etc) with you when hiking - it would be easy to write this to Apple Health. I think you'll find many in your community will be interested in this.

    Add my vote to Healthkit integration.  It would be great to record Heartrate as one of the data points on a hike or climb.

    It'd be really great if you add HealthKit support! I would like to switch from trails.io (which uses HealthKit) to Gaia because of Gaia's much better Apple Watch app.

    This should be easier with hikes recognized as an exercise type in watchOS and HealthKit...

    I would like to see this also, but I get the sense the Gaia team isn't listening to the community and hasn't been for some time. We still can't even view collective stats within the app and it's been 4+ years since a large group of people have been requesting that.

    It would be great to hear from the Gaia team to see if they are considering this or not.

    Add me to the list requesting Healthkit integration.  I now use Map My Ride to integrate xc skiing, walking, and biking to Health Kit on my iPhone.  I could be using Gaia!

    Yes please do this! Without this I’ll be switching to another app! The app doesn’t track my workout, so I have to turn on my hiking workout, which for some reason disables the watch app from following my location.

    It's true, I've been missing this too. I hate Strava but use it for that purpose.

    Ideally, I would just like to be able to connect my heart rate monitor to the app, so I can track heart rate on my adventures.

    I agree, it's a surprising gap since every other activity tracking app has this.

    Another vote here.
