S Health is one of Samsung’s proprietary fitness apps, and probably the only Samsung app that users frequently use. You probably are familiar with S Health if you own any of Samsung’s high-end devices. But if you have a lower-end Samsung phone or an Android device from another manufacturer, you probably are not very familiar.
Samsung added the S Health app to the Play Store but made it available for specific Samsung devices, the same thing that HTC does with Sense apps. Now, on the latest S Health update on the Play Store, Samsung announced that it has made the app available for a wider range of Android phones.
Now, not only high-end Samsung phones, but even less popular ones can use S Health. Actually, thanks to this update S Health can be installed on every device running Android 4.4.2, 5.0 and 5.1. It doesn’t matter if it is made by Samsung or another manufacturer like Sony, LG, HTC or Google.
Samsung has many custom applications but S Health is the only one that it is used frequently. It counts how many steps you have taken, distance, calories burned, healthy pace, heart rate, blood glucose, caffeine intake, blood pressure, water, sleep and much more. Of course, some of these features need a heart sensor to work, but most of them will work.
S Health is compatible with all devices on Android 4.4 KitKat, 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop. To download the app, open Play Store and search for S Health and download it. If you cannot find the app, click the download link from above or download the APK file (4.5.1.0011) and manually install it.
