In this episode we allow for generating health data for use in the iOS simulator, where HealthKit data will not be available. We then create some known streaks to make the streak detection and UI decoration easier to test. We end the episode by setting up Quick and Nimble that we will use to test our streak generation algorithm.

Continuing our series on building out our Activity++ clone, this time we hook up our application to HealthKit, displaying real data in the app from a device. We continue to use our wrapper type so that the application can still work in the simulator with randomized data, which also allows us to set up certain scenarios that we wish to test, such as streaks.
