Like Apple, Samsung usually likes to keep its own creations under lock and key to be used by customers who buy its smartphones. However, the Korean giant is in the sharing mood it seems as the S Health suite has now been made available to all Android devices, although you will need a handset rocking Android 4.4 KitKat or more.
The S Health app has been on the Google Play Store since the beginning of this year, but it has only been useable by people with Samsung’s high end Galaxy Model. The updated release opens the app up for download to more affordable Galaxy’s and even smartphones from other manufacturers, if they meet the software criteria.
S Health is a pretty excellent suite of fitness tools and health features. To make the absolute most of it you will need a device with a heart rate monitor, but there is much more you can do beyond that standout feature. Other goodies include the ability to count steps, record weight goals, and count calories, while there are a host of other features too.
The app is free to download from the Google Play Store right now.
