Samsung's fitness and activity tracking platform is called Samsung Health. It was initially launched as “S Health” with the Galaxy S3 and the company rebranded it to Samsung Health last year. That's also when Samsung added an “Ask An Expert” feature to the app which allowed users in the United States 24/7 online doctor visits. S Health is already available on a wide variety of Samsung smartphones so it should not come as a surprise that it has crossed more than 500 million installs on the Google Play Store.

Samsung Health is capable of recording and analyzing daily activities and habits so that users can maintain a successful diet and lead a healthy lifestyle. It can be used to add and track exercises like running, hiking, biking and more. There's also a pedometer to track the daily step count.

The app even allows users to measure their heart rate but for that, they require a Samsung flagship that comes with a heart rate tracker. That's basically any flagship smartphone after the Galaxy S5.

At 500 million installs, Samsung Health is likely ahead of any other fitness app on the Google Play Store. It has an added advantage, though. Samsung Health is pre-installed on countless Samsung devices. Given that the company is the top smartphone vendor on the planet, it's hardly surprising that this app is present on more than half a billion devices.
