Even though Apple pulled the HealthKit app in the last couple days because of a bug, the features that the program offered reminded me a great deal of the bracelet worn by all Circlers in The Circle, which tracks countless pieces of information on the health of the wearer. Just like the bracelet, the app is able to track things such as heart rate, blood pressure, caloric intake, etc., and report them all to your physician if you desire for that to be done. I just felt that the similarities between the app and the bracelet in the novel were interesting and should be shared. If anyone has further interest in the app, I posted the link below.
