Once again, you've got a world of choice here, as you can either set all the elements yourself if you've got your own heart rate monitor, or you can connect to a compatible Bluetooth device and have it send the data automatically. You've even got the chance to add in your pulse rate, which can be really useful if you suffer from a heart condition and want an easy way to monitor your heart's performance over time.
8. Simple graphs
With all this data, you may be worried that you won't be able to use it in any meaningful way. Thankfully, that couldn't be more of an erroneous assumption, as the S Health app makes it easy and quick to see everything you need in one quick glance.
The Health Board home screen has a tab for graphs in the bottom right-hand corner, and you can use this to see a visual representation of weight, blood pressure, exercise and steps managed over time, and a quick pinch in and out of the screen will spin you from days to weeks to months in the blink of an eye, so you can actually see how you've improved with your GALAXY S4.
There are a number of accessories to help you out with your Samsung S Health app, and all of them are great for making it slick and easy to get the information about your body onto your phone. With a wide range of scales and blood pressure monitors coming soon, it will be really easy to connect your body to the S Health app without needing to punch in loads of numbers each day.
And if you want to go for a run but want to leave your Samsung GALAXY S4 at home, you can use the forthcoming and stylish S Band to keep track of your run or day's activities, and instantly pair when you're reunited with your smartphone.
