Hello all,


Some of us were pondering over the need of having Web API(s) for health and
similar other sensors. With the growing presence of such sensors on
smart-watches and such, we believe a Web interface for retrieving data from
such sensors is required (especially for Web Apps).


Towards that end, we would like to know whether any work has been done
towards creating a Web API for Health Sensors (and the like).

Currently, the health sensor data is available only for native apps. 


Would appreciate the community's opinion on the same. Also, if such a
standard is already under development, could someone kindly point us in the
right direction?
