How to port the brand new Galaxy S6 S Health app to your Note 4 or S5
Indeed, companies like Samsung have already begun preparing for this expected new age of health and fitness tracking, and its S Health suite has been going through an improvement after improvement. S Health can now track your heart rate, your blood oxygen saturation, calories consumed and burned, and many, many more.
With the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, which also brought forward a new version of Samsung's TouchWiz, we now have an even more refined version of that same S Health suite. Sure, this time around we're talking mostly about a visual refresh, so if you want to install the new S Health app from the Galaxy S6 on your trusty Note 4, here's what you need to do:
- Download the Galaxy S6 S Health app for Lollipop, ready to be slapped on your TouchWiz-ed handset (proved working on the Note 4);
- Back up and replace your current S Health app, located in priv-app/S Health;
- Change the name of the new file to SHealth3_5.apk, and set its permissions to rw--r--r. Reboot, just in case.
That's all, folks, enjoy your new S Health functionality from the Galaxy S6, ported to your Lollipop-ed Galaxy flagship, chiefly the Note 4, but first check out what is expecting you beforehand in our hands-on video below.
