Samsung gets healthy with S Health Galaxy S III app

Not content with catering for all your phone, social network, camera and browsing needs, the Samsung Galaxy S III can now monitor your blood pressure, suggesting ways of improving your health thanks to a new app.

The S Health application is exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S III and is compatible with an array of health readers and sensors.

Users will be able to monitor blood pressure, glucose levels and measure body composition by pairing the Samsung Galaxy S III to various health sensors either by Bluetooth or USB. 

Results and feedback will be able to be tracked on the phone via charts and graphs with goals and achievements able to be shared on the likes of Facebook and Twitter should you wish to show how well you’re doing.

Targets can be set manually, though the S Health app will also reveal the targets you should be aiming for.

S Health can be downloaded now from Samsung’s More Services hub on the Samsung Galaxy S III.
