S Health is a health and fitness application that Samsung first introduced back in 2013 with the Galaxy S4. Later that year, it was the application that played a key role in placing Samsung’s first smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, as a fitness wearable besides the many other things that smartwatches do.
Currently in its fourth version, S Health has continually been improved and updated through Samsung’s own Galaxy Apps store and every time a new premium Samsung device has been unveiled. It is now available on the Google Play Store and unlike the recent spinning off of the Samsung mobile web browser, it is compatible with just about any Android device running Android 4.4 KitKat and later and any Samsung device since the Galaxy S III.
S Health does a number of things like tracking your eating habits so as to keep your weight in check as well as acting as a pedometer with its step counter.
The decision to make S Health, a key application in Samsung’s wearable devices, is in line with the company’s decision to make its latest Gear S2 smartwatch compatible with not just its premium smartphones but other Android devices as well.
