S Health integration demo with the Samsung Galaxy S 4

S Health integration demo with the Samsung Galaxy S 4
Samsung really expanded its S Health app and accessories idea from last year with the Galaxy S 4. Equipped with a thermometer, besides plenty of the usual sensors, the phone can show you the temps and humidity in the surrounding environment.

Not only that, but with the added accessories like wristbands and Bluetooth scales, you are able to track pulse, blood pressure, weight, speed and distance - all the basics for a good exercise tracking routine.

The S Health 2.0 app interface is also much more polished, diverse and integrated with the default UI, and it will let you make a food diary, and give you tips for improving your progress based on the information processed by the application. Take a look at an S Health demo in the video below.

Samsung, you did very well with the features, I just wish that the design will be more better.

Keep up with those helpful apps Sammy...did they also create those accessories or they asked another company to make it for them?

i don't think they will be able to sell 100 million galaxy S4s sony and htc have done a good job...... the galaxy s was good, the s2 was much better than the galaxy s and the s3 was much better than the s2...but the galaxy s4 is just a galaxy s3+ with few tweaks and minor changes...its powerful but its not as good as we wanted it to be, the unattractive design remains unchanged the competition is so high that, even samsung will feel the heat this year...the pricing will be the deciding factor now

Now this will make apple think to release something similar if SAME-sung succeeds with selling 100 million S 4.

"Those" can't take care of themselves and expect a phone to help? LOL People who take care of their health knows when they're in good shape or not. My gym coach always say that these things are useless

A scale is useless? The heart rate monitors are useless? I want a heart rate monitor to check some things when i work out, walk, run, ect. Would be nice to have the info fed back into a device for tracking purposes.

If they're brilliant enough, I'm sure they can find alternatives to their problem 'a lack of power for the microscope light source'. Nevertheless, this is good news if indeed it works. James (nursing360.com)
