1 - What is Eclipse Yourself?

Let's start with the obvious question - what is this app all about...

Your Apple Watch is a highly sophisticated instrument, measuring and capturing your health data throughout the day and night. The simple act of just wearing the Watch can uncover many health benefits.

The problem for a lot of users however, is knowing how to make sense of all this information at a glance from the one app. Say hello to Eclipse Yourself.

Eclipse analyses your health data and connects the dots between your total activity, recovery and readiness all within the one app.ย 

It accesses your data created by your Apple Watch and unlocks the power of this information in a simple, intuitive way. When you see an Eclipse, you are in perfect balance.

No more numbers and scores that make little sense, just one simple objective - aim for a perfect Eclipse each day to keep your health in balance.

Refer to the Eclipse page for an overview on how to Eclipse Yourself.

IMPORTANT - when you first installed Eclipse Yourself, you would have made your way through a brief introduction video. If you missed this or didn't have the time to properly read, fear not, you can view this again anytime.ย 

On the home Eclipse page, tap the Help tab and select 'Eclipse Introduction' to replay the magical overview (see below). This is built for new users and is the best starting point.

2 - Get Your Watch & iPhone Ready

Taking a minute to make sure your Apple Watch and iPhone are setup correctly to capture your health data.

Privacy and security come first with Apple, so there are various setup tasks required to allow your Apple Watch to record health data. Eclipse Yourself use's the following data permissions to perform it's functions:

Remember some Apple Watch Series are required for certain metrics, blood oxygen for example requires an Apple Watch Series 6 or above.ย 

If you are comfortable that your Watch is all setup and ready, you are good to go. Otherwise you can refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page that gives a step-by-step explanation on setting each up.

3 - Tracking Your Sleep

Tracking sleep is a must have if you intend on using the recovery and readiness features.

Put simply, you need to use a dedicated sleep app to track sleep, as Eclipse Yourself is not a sleep tracking app.ย 

You can use the free Apple Sleep app that is available to anyone on an Apple Watch 4 or greater. Or you can use our dedicated sleep app AutoSleep that works on all Apple Watch models.

To select your preferred sleep app, on the home page that shows the big Eclipse, in the bottom panel tap on the 'Options' tab. Go into 'Configure my Eclipse' and scroll down to the Recovery section to select your preferred sleep tracking app.

4 - How Much Data Do I Need?

Eclipse Yourself will load your existing data from the Apple Health app, looking at the previous 6 months of data.

Eclipse Yourself will pre-load up to 6 months of health data when you first install. However, you can begin with no data if you just purchased an Apple Watch, but ideally at least 7 days worth of health data will allow insights, 28 days worth is recommended.ย 

The important thing is being consistent with the habits around wearing your Apple Watch, so if you wear your Watch during the day, try wear it each day. If you wear your Watch to record workouts, try remember to wear it for all workouts. The more you can wear your Apple Watch, the better Eclipse Yourself will be able to personalise to you.

5 - Configure Your Eclipse

Doing some fine tuning will tailor the app to you even more!

On the home page that shows the big Eclipse, in the bottom panel tap on the 'Options' tab. This will open the menu and select 'Configure my Eclipse'. Review the options and make any necessary updates.

6 - Finding Your Way Around

Take your time, explore and learn your way around the app

Eclipse Yourself

When you first open the app, Eclipse will analyse your data and determine your health balance across the key metrics of activity, recovery and readiness. Tap in the middle of the Eclipse anytime to refresh the data.

Using the Gauges

Eclipse consists of 3 primary health metrics that all contribute to your overall Eclipse. Gauges provide an easy glance to understand where each sits, as the white needle indicates the current state for that metric.

You can tap into any of the gauges to see all your data in much more detail. Refer to any of these pages for detailed information on each gauge:ย 

Swipe Left & Right

iPhone come in all different types and sizes, so Eclipse allows a number of screens that let you swipe left and right to see more detail.

For example, on the Activity Road to Success page, it lets you swipe across a graph to see 6 months of data in the one place.ย 

The same applies for the Recovery, Readiness and Orbit graphs. So whenever you see a function that looks like it has more data to the left or right, try a swipe.


After you tap into sections around Activity, Recovery and Readiness for more detail, you will notice mini-gauges at the bottom of the screen. These mini-gauges control the focus of the data, so tap each one to experiment with the different views and insights.

The mini-gauges called '7D Trends' will convert your data to rolling 7 day avergages. Great for tracking real time changes over time compared to daily.

7 - Using the Inbox

Why not add additional insights to your data!

Would you like to add more context to your workouts such as categorising what type of training it was such as strength or endurance? If so, you can use the Inbox feature found on the home page to do this. Adding additional context provides more insights into your training on the Activity pages, as Eclipse will show breakups of your training categories over time.

An optional Daily Wellness survey also lets you record illness or injuries, while adding customised tags to your data.

Inbox is found on the home Eclipse page, in the top right corner (see image below).

Refer to the Inbox page for more information.

8 - What About Workouts

Your putting in the work, so track the benefits.

Recording Workouts

You can use any workout app on your Apple Watch that stores the data in the Apple Health app, as this is where Eclipse Yourself will look for any workouts.ย 

We recommend the best being the native Apple Workouts app that comes installed on every Apple Watch. If you are using a 3rd party device, be sure that it allows a data sync with Apple Health, plus that it is sending all the data to Health, as some 3rd party apps will only send a summary and not a full data sync.

Viewing Workouts

Tap into one of your workouts and you will see a unique scatter plot type graph we call a Quad Graph!ย 

These are a quadrant based graph that lets you easily see where that workout compares to workouts of the same type, like comparing all your runs, over the last 6 months. Let's say you finish a workout which felt much harder then recent workouts, the Quad lets you see exactly where it sits, how much more calories per hour you burnt, did you go for longer, was the pace faster, all these sorts of compares are available at a glance.

Refer to the Activity page to understand more about Quads.

9 - Using the Watch App

The Watch app is designed to provide easy updates on your Eclipse balance, with key views and a range of Watch face complications. Use the Watch app to see how your your Activity Road to Success is tracking for the day, or follow the gauge status of your Activity, Recovery and Readiness.

10 - Sharing Your Data

All the data that you can see for yourself in Eclipse, is the same data that is available to share with other approved users. Share activity, recovery and readiness data with filters and group views in the one spot.

Share is only required if you have a clear need to share data with other known Eclipse users. If you are monitoring your own Eclipse data, you can skip this step.

If you are looking to share with others, you will all need to have an Apple Watch and be on an active 'Eclipse Yourself + Share' subscription, which you can update to anytime from the Help tap.

Sharing Requirements

Note that all users require some available iCloud storage and iCloud Drive to be set to on, as Sharing uses the Apple iCloud services to securely share data.ย 

For you and others to successfully share data, you require the following:

Sharing is a very large module with a lot of features, available on iPhone and iPad, way too much for a Quick Guide.

If you are looking to share data with another user, for example, a coach. Refer to the Setup Sharing page here which is lists step by step instructions on how to share data with another user.

Otherwise continue to the Share page for a detailed explanation.

11 - iPhone & iPad

Don't forget that Eclipse Yourself is available on the iPhone and iPad, all under the same application.

Built for sharing but perfectly fine for individual use, the iPad is fantastic with the extra screen real estate.

12 - Finding Help

It's called a Quick Setup so that should be enough to get you up and running on Eclipse Yourself.
