When we talk about health or wellness applications, software that is linked to a wearable generally comes to mind. Without going any further, Xiaomi‘s Mi Band 5 integrated menstrual cycle control for the first time, as one of its great novelties. However, it is not necessary to have a bracelet to have this function, as Huawei phones demonstrate.
Fortunately or unfortunately, the period is something that millions of women go through and that thanks to technology, it can help to control much better . It is not necessary to buy a wearable or a smartwatch to be able to control this aspect. Huawei mobiles have an integrated health app that many users do not know about, but which includes this function among its options.
How the function is activated
Enter and accept the permissions
In order to activate it, we will have to enter the “Health” tool that is pre-installed on Huawei phones with EMUI. Once inside and together with other options such as exercise or sleep records, we will see the “Cycle calendar” section. By tapping on the option, we will see the presentation of the function and we will have to accept both the permissions and link it to our Huawei ID.
Configure personal data
Once we have accepted the permissions, we can access the cycle Calendar. The first step is to configure our personal data, referring to the information that will allow us to estimate the date of the next period. For this we will have to enter the date of the last period, the duration it has had and the duration between cycle and cycle. This data may be approximate, but we will refine it over time as the function has more information. This means that during the first months, the function may not be entirely accurate, as it requires time and information on our part.
Control the registry and other options
Once done, we will be able to see the time wheel that will warn us of the estimated time remaining for the next menstruation, as well as the so-called “fertile window”, that is, the days on which family members are most likely to increase . Likewise, we will have at our disposal precise data and the graph with the details by months. Finally, we find an information function that allows us to enter the symptoms, physical condition or mood during the days of the period.
