"First, a bit more on how the “life-tracking” app, Breeze, actually works. It’s worth noting up front that the app is only available for iPhone 5S right now because that’s the only device with the M7 co-processor, which automatically tracks motion without draining the battery. That means that when you open Breeze for the first time, the app is already able to pull in how many steps you’ve taken in the past seven days.RunKeeper launches ‘life tracking’ app Breeze to make Fitbit irrelevant | BetaBoston
It also means that you don’t need to do anything in order for Breeze to track your steps; you don’t need to open the app or even hit “start.” The app uses the data from your past activities to set personal daily goals for you and then offers reminders during the day, via push notifications, about how you’re doing and how far you have to go to meet a goal."
