It's been fifteen months since Samsung Health became available for Galaxy tablets for the first time. Or, more specifically, it's been that long since Samsung Health debuted on the Galaxy Tab S8 series. Unfortunately, the company has yet to expand availability to older tablets, and I'm afraid it may never do so.
Samsung will likely continue to make its Health platform available to future high-end tablets, such as the Galaxy Tab S9. And that's great! But there's no guarantee it will bring Samsung Health to mid-range tablets like the rumored Galaxy Tab S9 FE.
Furthermore, considering that Samsung Health has yet to go live on other devices beyond the Tab S8 series after 15 months, there's no guarantee that the company will ever make the Health platform available to older Tabs, such as the Galaxy Tab S7 series.
I wish I could review my Samsung Health graphs on my Tab's big screen
Admittedly, a Samsung tablet is not the best fit for Samsung Health if you intend to use the device to record your fitness progress. For example, using a large tablet for counting steps doesn't sound very practical. Nevertheless, the bigger screen is a better fit for all the health graphs Samsung Health provides and can also be a better place to watch fitness instruction videos.
My primary fitness-recording device is the Galaxy Watch 5. And although the paired Galaxy S22+ serves me fine, I must admit I wish I had access to all my health and fitness graphs and data on my larger Galaxy Tab S7 FE. Trying to install Samsung Health on my Tab S7 FE was among the first things I did after I bought my Galaxy Watch, only to be disappointed.
As of now, I've been waiting for Samsung Health to reach my Tab S7 FE for many months, and the platform is still nowhere to be found. Neither at the Galaxy Store nor the Play Store on my tablet. And seeing Samsung's progress in this area so far, or lack thereof, the situation may never change.
To be completely honest, I can't help wondering why it seems like Samsung is keeping the Health platform for ransom against older Galaxy Tab customers. Perhaps there are logistical constraints Samsung can't get over to bring Samsung Health to older tablets. But it's likely a conscious decision rather than a purely technical limitation that keeps the Health platform away from my Tab S7 FE.
Maybe Samsung expects a good portion of its tablet customers to upgrade their tablets so they can get access to Samsung Health on a bigger screen. And one day, I will upgrade, regardless of whether or not my Tab S7 FE gets access to Samsung Health by then. I just wish it did already. But realistically, my Tab S7 FE is already aging, and I may have to abandon all hope.
