Samsung Health is awesome by itself, but you can get even more out of it. First, you can sync the app and your phone to Samsung Health-compatible devices, like fitness bands, smartwatches, and headphones to help you stay on track of your fitness needs. But wait, there's more - you can also sync your other favorite fitness apps to Samsung Health, so you can have all your fitness data in one place.

Note: Screens and features may vary depending on the phone model, network carrier, and software version.

View compatible accessories

Navigate to and open Samsung Health, and then tap the Discover tab. Tap Products, and then scroll down to the Accessories section.

Tap the arrow next to Accessories. From here, you can scroll down to see a list of compatible accessories. Different types of accessories are broken down into categories. To see every accessory in a category (such as Activity trackers), tap View more at the bottom of the section.

Add an accessory

Since you can't bring your phone in the pool with you, why not connect your smart watch to Samsung Health so you can keep track of your laps?

Adding an accessory is easy to do and can even be completed using the Samsung Health app. If you have already connected and set up your Samsung device in the Galaxy Wearable app then it will show as a registered accessory in Samsung Heath.

To add one using Samsung Health, open the app and tap on the Menu button (the horizontal stacked lines) in the top left corner, then tap Accessories. Here you will see the list of accessories that have already been registered. If yours is not listed make sure your device is ready to pair then tap Scan for accessories. When found, select your device and follow the prompts to complete the setup process. Once complete, your device will automatically show as a Registered accessory in Samsung Health

Add and sync compatible apps

You can also use compatible apps with Samsung Health by syncing them. Navigate to and open Samsung Health, and then tap the Discover tab. Tap Products, and then scroll down to and tap Featured apps. A list of compatible apps will be displayed. Browse the apps, and when you find one you like, tap it. You'll be taken to the Play Store; tap Install to download the app.

Once the app installs, sign in or create an account. You will need to go into the third-party app's settings to connect it to Samsung Health so you can sync your health data. The steps may be different depending on the third-party app.

Manage connected app permissions

Samsung Health can connect with a number of other apps to make it easier for you to track your health all in one place. If you've connected another app to Samsung Health, you can manage its individual permissions so it only reads the data you want to share.

Open Samsung Health on your phone, and then tap Menu. Tap Settings, and then tap Data permissions. From here, you can select a connected app to see the different permissions it's using. Tap the switch next to a permission to turn it on or off. When you're finished, tap Done.

To disconnect from a service, just tap the green dot next to your desired service. Next, tap Disconnect on the popup message, and you're done.
