Samsung today announced Samsung Health 6.0, a revitalized version of its personal health and fitness app for Samsung phones. Samsung says the app includes a new user interface, new tracking tools, and new personalization features to customize the experience. Samsung simplified the UI so it focuses on the user's personal needs, habits, and priorities. The app features a new Together tab, which lets people share photos and fitness milestones with friends. It also opens a window to Samsung's worldwide community of health and fitness fans where people can collaborate and even participate in global challenges. The refreshed Discover tab is where users can fine-tune their knowledge by surfacing articles, programs, and compatible partner apps. It includes a storefront through which people can buy wearables, accessories, and other fitness products. Samsung Health is also taking a leap forward on Samsung's smartwatches. Samsung says the new Samsung Health interface provides more at-a-glance information, such as heart rate, GPS data, and workout countdown. Users can track 39 different exercises on all Samsung devices, while the latest Samsung Galaxy Watch can track these same exercises automatically. Samsung Health on Samsung wearables also provides new wellness and stress management features, such as a sleep stage detector and breathing exercise program. The new version of Samsung Health is available via the Google Play Store or the Galaxy Apps Store.
