Samsung’s S Health now works on all Android devices

The fitness tracking industry is ballooning and, like many of its rival, Samsung is banking on that trend.

Samsung has announced that its feature-tracking app, S Health, is now available on all Android devices.

Until now, S Health has been restricted to Samsung devices only.

However, now a phone or tablet made by any third-party manufacturer can use the Samsung-built app.

Samsung first launched its fitness tracker app on the Play Store earlier this year, although it only worked with a few Galaxy devices running Android 5.0.

The newly updated app will now work with any device running Android 4.4 KitKat or later.

S Health tracks a number of metrics, including activity, calories burned, distance travelled, heart rate, food consumed, caffeine intake, UV exposure, and even oxygen saturation – assuming you have the right sensory tech.

You can set your own goals, view data in graphs and charts, and receive feedback based on your level of activity.

S Health is completely free to download, so you can head over to the Play Store and download it now.

There’s no word yet on an iOS release.
