Samsung has done what they can with the technology in the Galaxy S8 to make it as friendly as possible for those trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. As a result there are a number of interesting Samsung Galaxy S8 health features that you can make use of in your everyday life.
S Health Step Counter
The most used of all of features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 health app is the S Health step counter. With this, user’s steps are counted in real time. Thanks to the accelerometer in the Galaxy S8, which can detect movement, the S Health step counter can act as a pedometer. With S Health, users can set step goals and track their walking, running or cycling progress since the day they started using the application.
On top of being able to track your steps, you can use the S Health step counter to get a rough estimate on how many calories you’ve burned.
There are a few other Samsung Galaxy S8 health features that can help you to count your calories. Counting calories can help individuals to gain, lose or maintain weight to ensure that their BMI is at a healthy level. Because it’s very important to be as accurate as possible when it comes to counting calories, the amount of success you’ll get from Samsung’s calorie counting tools will depend on how accurately you use them. For example, for the step counter, you’ll need to input your correct age, height and weight to get a more accurate calorie loss estimate.
Heart Rate Monitor
One of the most important aspects of exercise, especially cardio exercise like running or cycling, is your heart rate. Raising your heart rate through cardiovascular exercise can be very beneficial for your heart and can help you to lose calories, cut down on weight and keep yourself fit. With the heart rate monitor provided with the rest of the Samsung Galaxy S8 health features you are able to keep an eye on your heart rate before and after exercising. This tool can be useful for ensuring your pushing your body hard enough to reap the benefits of good exercise.
