- Bug Fix and performance improvement
Ratings and Reviews
So far this app has worked wonderfully, but a few features would make this app much better. In terms of food tracking, I would love to be able to use a barcode scanner for food. It's so much of a hassal to manually enter in information even with the search function. For items I enter for myself it would be great to be able to edit the information after saving the item. The ability to mesh with Apple Health would be amazing! So many other apps can read data from Apple Health, but not S Heath which sort of drags. (I much prefer S Health to Apple Health). It would also be nice to see calories burned vs calories eaten.
Edit: also, it would be nice to be able to delete a timeframe of data. Once it picked up the fact I was mowing the lawn on a riding mower thinking I was sprinting around the yard.

Dear user, Thanks for your valuable suggestions. We will pass these to development team, Thanks for being with us.
Much improved, but still buggy
The app largely does what you want from a health tracker, though the interface isn't entirely intuitive. You can view and enter data from selecting in the goals display or by clicking on a tracker item added to the grid. What I don't understand is why those take you to different interfaces for the same data. It's like the developers couldn't decide on an approach so they gave us both, but both are incomplete without the other view.
Syncing is much improved with the latest version of the software, plus a firmware update on my G3 watch. Biggest problem for me is a date/time bug which affects entering "dinner" details. Looks like it doesn't correctly account for your local timezone (I'm on EDT) so entries will disappear for today and show up instead for tomorrow. Sometimes it doesn't happen immediately, so you briefly see the totals you expect only to have them change. Super frustrating as it seems there's no good way for the user to correct it and force the date, and you can't delete the data for tomorrow until, well tomorrow. I've even seen it happen trying to correct data for the previous day despite having the date and time explicitly set.

Dear Crush_D, we are glad the app is working well for you now. We would request you to report this timezone issue through the App Contact us with screenshot and system log so the development team can investigate. You can watch this video to find out how to report an error: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdRm1AG7JuM&list=PLjXgjSgiIUmjpdeypWB675pFlbUZW0H-h&index=5 (Samsung Health: Sending Error Report). We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding the matter, thank you!
I recommend the Samsung Health app
I used the Samsung Health app for some time while I had my Samsung phone. I enjoyed the capabilities of the functions in the app and enjoyed the heart rate monitoring sensor associated with the Samsung phone and the app. My Samsung phone crashed and my family members are all I phone users so I am now using an I phone. I was disappointed that I could not find an all inclusive app such as this Samsung Health app. I downloaded it again onto my I phone and I am happy once again except for the fact that I do not have the heart rate sensor on my I phone to use with the app. I may have to buy a watch that will relate the HR to the app. I recommend this app because of its functions and ease of use!!!! This app has many different fitness categories to choose, an active pedometer, and categories to track food consumption for nutrition. I am currently using the food intake function to track and limit my calories and I am happy with this function as well!

Dear user, we appreciate the well thought out and detailed review and we are glad the app is serving you well, thank you for using Samsung Health.
Samsung phones have a special sensor to detect and measure your heart rate, this sensor is not available in iPhone so it cannot be used to measure your heart rate. You will need a Wearable device for that.
Hope you have a great day!
