Apple is reportedly taking on health metrics. Mobihealth news noted Monday that the company has launched a Healthbook app that will track activity, calories burned and miles logged, as well as letting users track blood pressure, hydration, heart rate and other health parameters.

The app, first reported by tech site "9to5 Mac," is part of the company's bigger health push, which appears to include an iWatch project that the company is reportedly discussing with the FDA.
