Remember the S Health application that Samsung told us about back in May? Well, today sees it official launch so if you fancy keeping track of how your body is doing under the pressures of life you may want to check it out. You will of course need a Samsung device as the application can be found within Samsung's more services.
The application will allow users to enter information such as diet, exercise, medication etc, so keeping track of how your body is doing couldn't be easier.
In addition it will also integrate with other healthcare sensors via Bluetooth such as blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors and body composition scales. Clever stuff.

London, UK — July 2, 2012 — Samsung Electronics, today announced the availability of S Health, a personal wellness application for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Initially demonstrated at the Galaxy S III Unpacked launch event in May, S Health collects health data to help maintain a healthier lifestyle. The application is compatible with a number of healthcare sensors such as blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors and body composition scales. The app enables the sensors to transfer a wide variety of health measurements automatically to the Galaxy S III via Bluetooth or USB, communicating information on the user’s health.
Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “S Health can provide real benefits in terms of tracking and monitoring health and wellness for our customers. We’re delighted to bring this innovative application to the Galaxy S III’s portfolio of diverse content and applications to suit different needs.”
S Health collects health data and creates graphs or tables for the results to provide a full picture of health information in a digestible, easy-to-understand format. S Health also has the ability to track and chart health readings over prolonged periods, which is of benefit for users who need to monitor their conditions regularly. Data can also be entered manually for diet, exercise, medication intake, and other pertinent health criteria.
Being able to share personal success stories can aid motivation in accomplishing set health goals. To help users share their achievements, S Health integrates social networks into the app and enables health updates and messages to be posted online via Twitter.
S Health is available for download in the UK through Samsung’s More Services pre-loaded application on the Galaxy SIII.
S Health is compatible with the following health readers/sensors:
- Lifescan Blood Glucose Meter (OneTouch UltraMini/UltraEasy Blood Glucose Meter in the US) (for connection via USB)
