How to utilise Samsung Health on Galaxy Watch?

Last Update Date : Feb 12. 2019

What is Samsung Health?

Samsung Health records and manages your 24-hour activity and sleep pattern to cultivate a healthy habit.

When connecting your Galaxy Watch to your Mobile Devices, you can save and manage the health-related data and also receive the useful information about your health everyday.

When you exercise for more than 10 minutes, Galaxy Watch will display an encouraging message. When the Galaxy Watch recognizes inactivity for more than one hour, it will notify you and show you some stretching motions to follow. When your Galaxy Watch recognizes you are driving, it may not display an encouraging message or stretches.
