Challenge participants take more steps a day than the average Samsung Health user 


Samsung Electronics Canada announced today a brand-new Group Challenge feature in the Samsung Health app[1] so you can now open a 10-people friendly health competition and see who can move the farthest or the fastest.


While sheltering at home or holiday feasting may have gotten in the way of your fitness goals, getting back on track does not have to feel daunting. Since January 12th[2], Galaxy users can simply create a challenge in the ‘Together’ section of the Samsung Health app to see who can either take the most number of steps in a set amount of time or who can be the first to reach a certain number of steps. Once a challenge is created, you can then invite up to 9 friends to join, even if they are not existing Samsung Health users.


Go to ‘Together’ Tab and click ‘Challenge’ Button in Samsung Health app. You can select between ‘Get the first’ and ‘Go the farthest’ types.


Find Your Fitness Motivation

Motivation and competition can be key factors in achieving your fitness goals. This is why Samsung continues to add new features and capabilities to help you have fun while staying fit.


Group Challenge is the latest expansion of the Samsung Health Challenge features, which you can access via the Together tab on the bottom of the Samsung Health app. There is Global Challenge, the most popular type of Challenge, which enables you to enter monthly step count competitions against all Samsung Health users around the world. Samsung also introduced 1:1 Challenge, allowing you to invite one of your close friends or family members to work with you to achieve your step count goals. And now, 1:1 Challenge has evolved into Group Challenge. While you still have the option to create a one-on-one competition, you can now invite anywhere between 1 to 9 of your friends so you can work out and keep each other motivated to achieve your fitness goals, even when you’re apart. You can even create multiple Group Challenges so you can simultaneously compete with family, friends and co-workers.


Improve Your Overall Wellbeing

Since its launch in 2012 as a simple fitness tracker, Samsung Health has grown into a comprehensive wellness and fitness platform with a wide variety of features, ranging from virtual exercises and mindfulness videos to the ability to track sleep patterns and heart rate.


“In our fast-paced world – particularly in these times – achieving a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy,” said TaeJong Jay Yang, Corporate SVP and Head of Health Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “That’s why we are continuously improving Samsung Health and adding more capabilities to give the users even more ways to stay healthy, wherever, whenever.”
