Apple’s M7 coprocessor, which is designed with fitness apps in mind, is now available.
Dubbed Nike+ Move, the application is the first to take advantage of the M7 chip in Apple’siPhone 5S. The application uses the coprocessor to analyze and convert movement for analysis within the program. In order to gauge movement, Nike is using a NikeFuel gauge. That gauge will analyze movement throughout the day, see how close folks are to reaching their goal, and see when they’re most active.
Nike showed off the application in September at Apple’s special iPhone event. Apple indicated at that time that the application would be one of the first to take advantage of its M7 coprocessor, but promised that other fitness-related apps would be coming to the App Store.
