S Health is the best fitness app and now Samsung has launched it on the Google 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 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.

Acts as Fitness Coach
S Health is your personal fitness coach. You can 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 and fitness targets.
Be your own Health Manager
With S Health you can be your own health manager. 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.
You can stay motivated
When your set targets are not being met a voice guide will help you accomplish your goals and you can accomplish your fitness milestones.
You can keep track of your activities
Suppose you are having a lunch or walking on road or even at home or basking in sun, all this you can track with Trackers. Not only you track your daily activities, you also measure and manage your health and environmental records such as heart rate, SpO₂, and ultraviolet using the built-in sensors in Samsung smartphones and wearable’s.
Even supports other tracking apps
Samsung S health now extends support for third-party activity tracking apps from Fitbit, Jawbone, Misfit, Microsoft Health, Runkeeper and Strava. Fitbit integration will only share sleep data with S Health while Strava will only let you share exercise data.
Become social and make friends
With S Health, you can use ‘Together’ to set targets with friends, check their statuses and compete.
To do so, find your friends and add the step challenges feature through manage items, then accept or send out invites to begin the competition. There are also leaderboards you can check.
S Health is compatible with all Samsung devices where connected wearables will automatically sync data. S Health also automatically detect your workouts, so you don’t have to deliberately tell it that you’re going for a run. Once you step out and start the app will realize that you’re on your workout. It also now has the ability to register breaks in a workout session. With Auto Pause turned on, you don’t have to worry about a conversation with a friend at the park completely trashing your average mile pace.
