Samsung Health app brings updated health and fitness tools, a new UI and more

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Samsung today released a new version of the Samsung Health app, including updated health and fitness tools, a new UI, and increased personalisation to empower users to take greater control of their health and wellness.

With an updated user experience, more user-friendly visual design and new features, Samsung Health 6.0 is more intuitive, interactive, personalised and easier to navigate. Taking user feedback and the latest design trends into consideration, the Samsung Health home screen is now simplified, categorised and prioritised according to the user’s personal needs and habits, so that users can quickly view and access preferred features.

The improved ‘Together’ tab now allows users to share photos and celebrate fitness milestones and achievements with friends all within the app. Users can also connect with Samsung’s community of users around the world to exchange texts and photos, compare achievements and encourage each other to do more to reach wellness goals together by participating in the monthly ‘Global Challenge’.

The updated ‘Discover’ tab provides a more tailored user experience, allowing users to easily find health-related content – including articles, programs and partner apps – based on their interests and level of fitness. Additionally, users can now purchase wearables, accessories, and health-related goods and services all within the platform.

Samsung Health is also committed to strengthening its collaboration with partners to expand its digital health ecosystem and provide the best experience to users. Samsung Health now supports a complete set of SDKs for app and web service integration. This enables strategic partners to expand their services and enhance user experience. With the latest user interface and updated ‘Discover’ feature, users can find services quickly and easily, giving partners enhanced visibility of their apps, products, and content.

Samsung Health on Samsung Smartwatches

The newly enhanced Samsung Health interface on Samsung wearables and smartwatches features more at-a-glance information, a workout countdown, GPS and heart rate tracking information, all available with the tap of a button. With the latest update, users can now choose from 39 different exercises and track their fitness progress when they pair with a Samsung wearable device or smartwatch.

The latest Samsung smartwatch, Galaxy Watch, also allows the application to detect one of the 39 different exercises, and record data even when users switch between activities – such as from running to cycling – tracking the entire workout from start to finish.

Users can get more out of their Samsung smartwatch, even when the workout is over, with Samsung Health’s new wellness and stress management features. With ‘Sleep Stage Detection,’ users can track their sleep cycles to improve sleep habits. Users can also manage stress in real-time through heart rate and heart rate variability monitoring, as well as with a guided breathing exercise program.

Samsung Health’s Telehealth

Samsung Health strives to provide more intuitive and accessible healthcare options for consumers globally. Samsung Health includes ‘Symptom Checker’ and ‘Ask an Expert6,’ which allow users to access medical information, look up symptoms, manage prescriptions and even chat live with certified doctors, all within a single application.  Additionally, Samsung Health has built a partner ecosystem with well-known health brands, like Babylon (UK) and American Well (US), creating many more ways for users to improve their health and wellbeing.

“At Samsung, we are committed to empowering users with the tools to manage their own health and well-being,” said Peter Koo, SVP and Head of the Health Service Team at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics.

“We’re proud to deliver a service that continues to redefine the health and fitness experience, with new features to help our users to achieve and exceed their health goals.”
