Google Play Store now home to Samsung S Health app
Any Samsung smartphone running Android 5.0 can now load up the current version of Samsung S Health directly from the Google Play Store. This is the same version of the fitness-centric app that comes out of the box with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Originally offered with 2013's Samsung Galaxy S4, the app used to be exclusive to Galaxy Apps, which was named Samsung Apps originally.

The S Health app allows you to track your workouts by measuring your heart rate, expended calories, oxygen saturation levels and more. It can also be your coach by allowing you to set workout targets, and then tracks your progress as you try to meet them. The app supports over 70 languages.

If you have an older Samsung handset that is capable of downloading the S Health app from the Google Play Store, the only major difference you will find is with the new UI that is similar to the one employed on the new flagship models. But that might be enough of a reason for you to want to install the newer version. All you need to do is to click on the sourcelink to start the process.

Good. Now put the rest of those Note apps in Playstore. I refuse to use any Samsung app I can't find in the play store.

Then you're a fool. I use google play, galaxy apps and amazon store on my device and I got a lot of premium stuf for free.

I don't want Samsung to lock in my data like the way my iPad does. That's why I quit doing important work on my iOS platform. Having the apps in Play store and accessible by other Android devices other than Samsung branded is important to me.
