With the right Lumia, you can Glance at Health and Fitness, Weather

If your Nokia Lumia supports the Glance function that puts customized information on the Windows Phone lockscreen, you’ve got two more options to choose from. All About Windows Phone noted on Friday that a software update added both Weather and Health and Fitness to the Glance choices. Data from both can be seen on the lockscreen without unlocking the handset. These were originally said to be part of the Lumia Denim software update but one person says it works with the prior Lumia Cyan update. I’d love to verify that but my Lumia 520 doesn’t support Glance due to hardware restrictions; nor do these models according to Nokia: 521, 525, 526, 625, 630, 635, Icon and 930.

    I’ve got a Lumia 925 (T-Mobile.) It works except that Weather is not offered in the Glance setup screen. I can add Weather to the lock screen though. Perhaps I need to wait for the Win 8.1 update.

    I have a Lumia 920 which upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 just over a month ago. Glance shows status from Microsoft’s own “MSN Health & Fitness” application.
    At present this is the only fitness application available which can do this.

    My Lumia 720 do support the Glance function, but I live in Brazil and I did not received yet any update on this feature. Once I receive the update I’ll comment again. :)
