Samsung Health is already pre-installed on the best Samsung smartphones, but it can also be used on other Android smartphones and even the iPhone. This article explains how to set up the fitness app so you can get started right away.
On the rocky road to a bikini figure, I trust Samsung Health again in 2022. If you buy a Galaxy smartphone, you’ll find this fitness app on your phone when it’s first set up. Originally exclusive to Samsung devices, however, we’ve long been able to use the Health app on all smartphones and also compatible smartwatches and fitness trackers.
Samsung Health has long since evolved from a very rudimentary app to a full health suite – and if you ever want to check it out, we’ll tell you how to set up the app here.
Set up Samsung Health
The first step is very obvious: if you can’t find Samsung Health pre-installed on your phone, you’ll need to download the app for free for Android or iOS first.
- Install Samsung Health and start the app.
- Log in with your Samsung account. If it’s not there, go to Settings > Accounts and Backup > Manage Accounts > Add an account > Samsung Account (may be a slightly different path depending on your smartphone).
- Tap the 3 dot icon in the upper right corner and there Profile.
- Enter your sex, date of birth, height, weight, desired level of activity and the desired nickname for your profile.
With that you are done and can start. You can always see the steps you’ve taken and your step goal on the app’s home screen. 6,000 steps are predefined here, but of course you can set your own goals.
I have to go now because I only hit just under 100 of my 13,000 target milestones today. But you can tell me in the comments if you also use a fitness app on your smartphone. Do you have experience with Samsung Health or do you prefer an alternative?
