Last updated: May 26th, 2016 at 17:43 UTC+02:00

Samsung has been slowly and steadily adding new features to its activity and fitness tracking platform S Health. The last major update to the smartphone app was released a couple of months ago after which it could automatically detect runs and walks. Now, Samsung has released yet another update to the app, which is available through the Play Store.

After the latest update (version, the S Health app now lets you compare your step counts with friends and your age group. Moreover, the app can now combine and show all steps captured through the smartphone, connected wearable devices, and compatible third-party apps. The update also brings an ability to export blood glucose, blood pressure, and heart rate data as HTML, PDF, and XLS files.

You can now quickly measure heart rate by placing a finger on the sensor and turn the device over. However, the Quick Measure feature needs to be activated in the app. The updated app also lets users sync blood glucose data wirelessly from external Bluetooth-enabled blood glucose meters. As usual, the update comes with various bug fixes and performance improvements.
