Following Motorola and HTC, Samsung has started to decouple its exclusive apps and launch them on the Play Store, making it easier for users to update to new versions when they're available.
Previously available only on the Galaxy Apps Store, Samsung's activity tracking S Health app has now landed on the Play Store. The app syncs with compatible Galaxy devices to track steps, heart rate, stress levels, sleep activity and caloric intake. Currently, the app only works with select Samsung devices running Android 5.0 and later.
Availability of the app on the Play Store allows users on older devices that have received the update to Android 5.0 to take advantage of the redesigned user interface of S Health, which debuted on the Galaxy S6. Here's what's on offer:
S Health is your personal fitness coach. Set targets, track your everyday activities and reach new milestones with Goals. With intuitive charts and helpful tips, the goals will guide you to achieve your health & fitness targets. Stay fit and get healthy with the new S Health.
S Health makes it fun and easy to stay on top form. With a simple and quick summary, it's easy to have a quick glance at your latest health and fitness status. Of course, you can personalize your dashboard by adding or removing Goals, Programs and Trackers.
Go beyond your limits with Programs. Whether you are a first timer or an avid runner, the programs help you accomplish your fitness milestones. With the voice guide, keeping pace is easier than ever.
Whether it's a single step, a bite at lunch or time spent soaking in the sun, track it all with Trackers. The trackers not only make it easy to track your daily activities, they also allow you to measure and manage your health and environmental records such as heart rate, SpO₂, and ultraviolet using the built-in sensors in Samsung smartphones and wearables.
