Samsung has launched the S Health “personal wellness” application for the Galaxy S III, hoping to help improve the health of its smartphone users.

 
The app, which was first demonstrated at the Galaxy S III Unpacked launch event in May, collects and collates data on the user's health to chart changes and help with improving lifestyle.
 
The software is compatible with a number of healthcare sensors, including blood glucose meters, blood pressure monitors and body composition scales. These currently include the Lifescan Blood Glucose Meter, connected via USB, the OMRON Blood Pressure Monitor and Body Composition, and the A&D Blood Pressure Monitor and Body Composition, the latter two connecting via Bluetooth.

Much of the data is added automatically through the above devices, but users can also manually enter information about diet, exercise, medication intake, and other relevant health data.
 
For those who need a little motivation to improve their health, the app is integrated with Twitter, allowing users to share goals and achievements, and get the support of others in their quest for better health.
 
The app can be downloaded through the More Services app on the Galaxy S III.
