Apple Health vs Samsung S Health
The new Health app gives you an easy-to-read dashboard of your health and ﬁtness data. And we’ve created a new tool for developers called HealthKit, which allows all the incredible health and ﬁtness apps to work together, and work harder, for you. It just might be the beginning of a health revolution.
Samsung S Health leads you through consistent, daily fitness routines. Set goals and achieve them with the help of the Galaxy S5's pedometer and S Health’s, which constantly tracks your exercise, including your condition, how far you walk and how long for, the calories you burn, your speed, and so on.
