Samsung’s S Health app now compatible with non-Samsung smartphones and tablets

Samsung has officially ported its health tracking app to every other smartphone device and not just their own with an update. S Health helps you keep track of daily activities, including things like heart rate, stress levels and calorie intake, and it will now work with non-Galaxy smartphones on Android 4.4 and above. This move is no doubt related to the launch of the Gear S2, which will also work with non-Samsung phones and tablets.

The update also opens up S Health to all Samsung phones after the Galaxy S III, and we can’t wait to see what other Samsung apps will start working with general Android devices in the future. Download the latest version of S Health from Google Play link below, and if you’re using a smartphone from another manufacturer, let us know how the app works on your device down in the comments section!


Get it on Google Play

It’s a good strategy in most of cases . I think that Samsung needs to release an update for Note 4, Note 3 and also Note 2, S5, S4 and Galaxy Alpha without bloatware and option for users to download their favourite Samsung apps fron Google Play or Galaxy Apps and I think that Samsung needs to release all their apps for all android users.

And how do you measure heart rate on a Non Samsung device? Cause without Heart Rate and SpO2 it’s just another pedometer.

In order to get an accurate reading you need to have the appropriate hardware to measure it. So you need to have an optical heart rate sensor on your non-Samsung device.
