How do I record my steps or other exercise using the Samsung health app?

Samsung Health tracks your activity, nutrition and sleep, and delivers insights based on your progress. You can even book live video doctor appointments or get information, fast, with the symptom checker.

Please note: the Samsung Health app is intended to provide an approximation of the amout of steps you've made rather than an exact recording. There are a number of factors that can impact how steps are calculated including: 

 

  • movement of a vehicle, your hand, or your movement while on a sofa or in bed
  • where the device is located (pocket or bag)
  • stride calculations

Once you've opened the Samsung Health app for the first time, it will automatically turn on the step recording function. To view your steps for the day or to set a target, tap the steps section.

Tap the Steps section

Here you can view how many steps you've taken, the total distance, how many calories you've burnt and your pace. You can also adjust the daily step target.
