Get in shape with the Galaxy S5 and Gear range

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.

You may ask, why do we need heart rate sensors on our phones? Samsung’s approach to wellbeing is all about helping people improve their fitness through regular updates and helpful reminders. With this sensor, you will be able to easily keep track of vitals, whether you are doing a workout or you’re busy at work.

Keep motivated with S Health

The new and improved S-Health 3.0 provides personalised daily routines, along with target-setting functions and real-time coaching. These targets can be measured in steps taken, rate of speed, or distance travelled. And if you miss your targets, the S Health application is there to provide a friendly notification reminder. It’s like having a personal trainer always with you, but with less yelling.

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.
