Samsung mentioned its S Health app in passing during the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S III — presumably due to the glut of similarly S-suffixed apps and services that were also unveiled. The service has now apparently launched in Samsung’s homeland, alongside more details of what it’ll offer. This includes a raft of metric-measuring charts, as well as the ability to connect through Bluetooth and USB to health devices like heart-rate monitors and connectivity-friendly scales. The app will record and even graph your health ups and downs, aiming to help “regulate” what you eat and gauge exactly how much you exercise. It has now launch on Samsung’s App hub and will make its way to the US and five to-be-confirmed European countries soon.
Let Samsung explain the “warm emotional experience” in a Google-translated release right after the break.
Update: We’ve just received the English version of the PR, which adds that the app is now live in the UK, alongside an initial list of compatible health devices. Take a look after the break.
