The Covid-19 pandemic created a lot of changes pertaining to consumer habits over the past five years. It turns out that many American adults are now turning to various health apps because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing them to gain better control over their well being. Around 40% of Americans now use health apps with all things having been considered and taken into account.

This indicates that the proportion of American adults who were using health apps has increased by a healthy 6 points since 2018. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that 27% of these consumers use their preferred health apps multiple times a day. 23% check in with these apps once a day.

Following that we had 18% of users stating that they use these apps multiple times a week, but not every day. 5% check it once a week, 14% only check it occasionally and 5% have only checked the app once. What’s more, 9% of US adults who participated in this survey stated that they have never opened up health apps after downloading them.

One common trend that was noted among all survey respondents was that the vast majority of them think that using these apps can help make their health better than might have been the case otherwise. 86% agreed that wearables can make it a lot easier for them to reach their weight loss goals, and that will further improve their ability to keep their fitness in check in the long run.

75% of survey respondents said that they used pedometer apps. 48% said that they use it to improve the quality of their sleep, and 46% stated that they are utilizing these apps in order to keep track of their weight.

All of this makes it quite clear that there is a lot that consumers can gain from the use of these apps. Hence, such apps might have a larger role to play in the future as more consumers use them.
