Samsung S Health app now compatible with non-Samsung devices

Samsung S Health

If there’s one complaint we have with Samsung’s apps are that they’re only compatible with the company’s devices. However, the #SHealth app has just received support for non-Samsung devices as well, suggesting that the Korean manufacturer might be keen on amending the exclusivity aspect from its services.

The S Health app can be found on the Google Play Store and is up for grabs on practically any device as long as it’s running Android 4.4 KitKat. The app works better if you have a heart rate sensor on the device, but is perfectly capable of functioning without it as well.

It can track your runs, check the calories you’ve burnt and give you a perfect idea of where you stand in terms of fitness goals that y0u might have set at a certain point. It’s a very nifty fitness app really and integrates well with services like Nike+, so your existing data can be synced as well.

  1. Mike did you ever get around this?
    I’m weighing up options for Discovery Vitality and trying to see if using Huawei Fit (integrated with s-health) on a P10 will integrate with Vitlaity.

  2. S-health still has a problem with the Huawei P9 Lite – It stops counting steps somewhere in the day for some reason unknown. The Huawei step counter may then show (for example) 15000 steps at the end of the day, but the S-health only shows 500.

    Important for Discovery Vitality, who only accept data from the s-health app.

    Any ideas on how to solve this?
