I have a body composition monitor and a blood pressure monitor that can measure various health parameters. What I'd need is an Android app that, for a given day and time, would enable me to input the following data by hand:

  • Weight
  • BMI
  • Body Fat
  • Skeletal muscle
  • Resting metabolism
  • Visceral fat
  • Systolic blood pressure
  • Diastolic blood pressure
  • Pulse rate

The data collected should be saved on the device in a open human-readable text file (ideally CSV) so that I can easily import it into a spreadsheet.

A plus would be the ability to upload (automatically) the data on the cloud (e.g. on Dropbox) and plot charts of those parameters over time directly in the app.

I'd prefer a free or open source app, but I could also choose a paid app if it meets all my requirements.

I know I could just use a spreadsheet, but I'd like to have something more mobile-friendly that can be used on a phone with a good user experience.

It looks like that such app does not exist (yet). Most apps allow for the collection of either the blood pressure and pulse rate or weight and BMI. A few apps can track both but that's not enough for me since I need to log extra parameters such as body fat, etc..

In the end, even though it's not what I wanted to use, I'll log the data using a spreadsheet on the device. Basically, it's just a simple table where each row contains the date, time and the measurement for each parameter. It's not ideal but actually not too bad: using Google Sheets for Android I've created and prepared the spreadsheet on my desktop computer, making sure the cells are of the right size when read/edited on a smartphone.

The spreadsheet is accessible on the device even when it's offline ("Keep offline" option) and can be easily downloaded on a desktop computer for all the processing required (e.g. creation of charts).
