Codrut Nistor,

S Health made its debut with the Samsung Galaxy S3 in early July 2012, being downloadable via the Samsung Apps store, but only coming preloaded on certain handsets of the South Korean giant. In September 2015, the app finally became available for all devices loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat or later. Now, the time has arrived for a rebranding and some new features, as S Health turns into Samsung Health.

According to the official press release, "Samsung Health adds several new features including telehealth, personalized insights, social capabilities, and a new UI." Samsung Health now offers access to more than one hundred fitness, food, and lifestyle trackers, and soon will also get Samsung Rewards. The "Ask an Expert" service allows Samsung Health users to connect via video to more than 1,200 board-certified doctors for $59 USD per session.

Samsung Health can work with both smartphones and smartwatches, but can also be integrated with connected devices such as various medical instruments or weight scales. The minimum software requirement remains Android 4.4 KitKat.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
