Oculus Move health app launched at the end of 2020: Oculus Move analyzes the health data of its users not only while exercising, but also while playing VR/AR games or using other apps.

Movements are tracked and calories burned, which – according to Oculus – should help users monitor their health even during (presumably) quiet activities like playing a game.
