Working out is the first step in a fitness program. But you’ll progress a lot faster if you can track your results. Now there's an easy way to do that, and it's right in your pocket: S Health, an app that comes with your Samsung Galaxy S® 4. Here's how S Health™ can help you get fit.
Step by Step: Walking Mate Provides a Pedometer
Simply walking as much as possible is an easy, low-effort way to grab some exercise. Walking Mate is the step counter built into S Health. All you have to do is turn it on and leave your Galaxy S 4 in your pocket. The app will capture every step you take, whether you’re running or walking, and it will even tell you how many calories you burned. Use Walking Mate to set daily goals and keep pushing yourself to take those extra steps.
Feel the Burn: Set Workout Goals with Exercise Mate
When you're ready to buckle down and get to work, Exercise Mate is the part of S Health for you. You can choose from one of several preloaded exercise activities— including running, cycling, tennis and more—and Exercise Mate will help you keep track of your activities after you work out. For example, tell Exercise Mate you spent the last half hour playing basketball and the app will calculate your total calorie burn.
Keep Tabs on Mealtime with Food Tracker
The other side of the calorie equation is what you eat, of course, and S Health can analyze your meals and calculate how many calories you've consumed during the day. Just tap the icon for each mealtime—breakfast, lunch, dinner and other snacks—and add the information for everything you ate. If that burger at lunch is too good to resist, Food Tracker will give you an idea of what you need to do to get back on track for dinner.
How's the Weather? Ask Surroundings
If it's about to start raining cats and dogs, it may not be a great time to go for a jog. Surroundings gives you a quick look at the nearby weather, measuring the temperature and humidity around you and providing estimates of your likely
comfort level during a workout. For example, if it's too hot and too humid outside, Surroundings can warn you in advance that workout conditions may not be ideal, letting you opt for an indoor activity instead.
Check Your Figure with
Naturally, the Galaxy S 4 also lets you track another important stat: Your weight. Just load the Weight portion of the S Health app and tap Update to enter the latest news from your scale.Your weight is tracked over time, and the app provides a range of healthy target weights to use as you set your goals.
