There is not much that’s more important than your wellbeing. However, in today’s non-stop, always connected world, prioritising fitness can be a challenge. Discover how Samsung’s latest Galaxy S5 and Gear range can help provide fitness tools and motivate us in a very personal way.
Will Francis, one of the UK’s most influential tech bloggers, provides a first look at the latest features and applications found in the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Gear range. Check out what he has to say.
Move to the beat
Your heart is one of the most important indicators of your fitness; how it reacts and recovers to even the simplest tasks can say so much. And this is why the Galaxy S5 now comes with a built-in Heart Rate Sensor, the world’s first smartphone to do so. Located just beneath the camera on the back of the Galaxy S5, checking your beats per minute (BPM) is as simple as placing your finger on the sensor.
Stay active with Gear Fit
Voted the Best Mobile Device at the Mobile World Congress, Samsung’s Gear Fit is your ultimate fitness device. Its curved touchscreen display and hypoallergenic band makes it ideal for an active lifestyle.
Like the other Gear devices, it features the built-in Heart Rate sensor and S Health applications, but it also has an Always-on activity tracking system. This follows all your movements throughout the day, 24/7. This information can then be analysed on your Galaxy S5, helping you understand what targets you're hitting and where you need to try a little harder.
