Generating Data Test

Arduino
Once the various libraries are installed run this program to see if everything works. You should be getting a live stream of data or values on the serial monitor.
#include <ifx_dps310.h>

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  while (!Serial);

  //Call begin to initialize ifxDps310
  //The parameter 0x76 is the bus address. The default address is 0x77 and does not need to be given.
  //ifxDps310.begin(Wire, 0x76);
  //Use the commented line below instead to use the default I2C address.
  ifxDps310.begin(Wire);

  // IMPORTANT NOTE
  //If you face the issue that the DPS310 indicates a temperature around 60 C although it should be around 20 C (room temperature), you might have got an IC with a fuse bit problem
  //Call the following function directly after begin() to resolve this issue (needs only be called once after startup)
  //ifxDps310.correctTemp();

  //temperature measure rate (value from 0 to 7)
  //2^temp_mr temperature measurement results per second
  int temp_mr = 2;
  //temperature oversampling rate (value from 0 to 7)
  //2^temp_osr internal temperature measurements per result
  //A higher value increases precision
  int temp_osr = 2;
  //pressure measure rate (value from 0 to 7)
  //2^prs_mr pressure measurement results per second
  int prs_mr = 2;
  //pressure oversampling rate (value from 0 to 7)
  //2^prs_osr internal pressure measurements per result
  //A higher value increases precision
  int prs_osr = 2;
  //startMeasureBothCont enables background mode
  //temperature and pressure ar measured automatically
  //High precision and hgh measure rates at the same time are not available.
  //Consult Datasheet (or trial and error) for more information
  int ret = ifxDps310.startMeasureBothCont(temp_mr, temp_osr, prs_mr, prs_osr);
  //Use one of the commented lines below instead to measure only temperature or pressure
  //int ret = ifxDps310.startMeasureTempCont(temp_mr, temp_osr);
  //int ret = ifxDps310.startMeasurePressureCont(prs_mr, prs_osr);


  if (ret != 0)
  {
    Serial.print("Init FAILED! ret = ");
    Serial.println(ret);
  }
  else
  {
    Serial.println("Init complete!");
  }
}



void loop()
{
  unsigned char pressureCount = 20;
  long int pressure[pressureCount];
  unsigned char temperatureCount = 20;
  long int temperature[temperatureCount];

  //This function writes the results of continuous measurements to the arrays given as parameters
  //The parameters temperatureCount and pressureCount should hold the sizes of the arrays temperature and pressure when the function is called
  //After the end of the function, temperatureCount and pressureCount hold the numbers of values written to the arrays
  //Note: The Dps310 cannot save more than 32 results. When its result buffer is full, it won't save any new measurement results
  int ret = ifxDps310.getContResults(temperature, temperatureCount, pressure, pressureCount);

  if (ret != 0)
  {
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println();
    Serial.print("FAIL! ret = ");
    Serial.println(ret);
  }
  else
  {
    Serial.println();
    Serial.println();
    Serial.print(temperatureCount);
    Serial.println(" temperature values found: ");
    for (int i = 0; i < temperatureCount; i++)
    {
      Serial.print(temperature[i]);
      Serial.println(" degrees of Celsius");
    }

    for (int i = 0; i < pressureCount; i++)
    {
      Serial.print(pressure[i]);
      Serial.println(" Pascal");
    }
  }

  //Wait some time, so that the Dps310 can refill its buffer
  delay(10000);

HealthBand with Blynk Application

Arduino
This is the final program, few variables and thresholds need to be manually inputted for the health-band to work well, follow the comments and make the adjustments. Set up the widgets on the Blynk app as per your needs and your assistant should come to life!
