Samsung Health Brings Workouts and Mindfulness Activities to Another Level with Seamless Connectivity and Personalised Programmes
Track progress in real-time with seamless connectivity between Samsung Smart TVs and Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Series
Easily access personalised fitness and mindfulness programmes right to the TV screen
London, UK – 16th September 2021 – Working out at home can be an efficient way to maintain health and wellness habits – it’s convenient and accessible, though it requires the right set of tools for success. People can make the most out of the basics, like their yoga mat and resistance bands, but if they want to take their health and wellness regimen to the next level, they will need a reliable way to track their progress and find the right programme.
Since May 2020, Samsung Health  on Smart TVs has enabled users to customise their own fitness programmes by connecting them to premium content, a personalised performance dashboard, goal-based challenges, and intelligent features that keep them motivated and focused on achieving their wellness goals. Now, with seamless connectivity with wearables, smartphones and a powerful software that brings everything together, Samsung Health allows users to get personalised programmes and track their fitness stats on their TVs like never before.
A Smarter Workout is Just One Connection Away
Samsung Health offers seamless connectivity with smartphones and wearables, enabling users to easily track and identify their progress while focusing on their workouts. Now, with the recent release of the Galaxy Watch4 Series, users can track workouts and even measure recovery to get the most out of their fitness programmes.
One of the biggest improvements is the ability to get a real-time snapshot of fitness data right on the TV screen – which includes a calorie tracker and a heart rate monitor to accurately measure performance. It helps users keep track of their progress and the calories burned to stay motivated, keeping up the intensity and pushing themselves in their workouts. This is especially important for workouts like HIIT training, where being “in the right zone” is crucial for a good workout.
After an intense workout, Samsung Health also offers a comprehensive recovery tracking, allowing users to track and record their progress in their overall fitness regime. By pairing their Samsung TV with wearables and accompanying mobile app, users can get a personalised dashboard with all the stats – from sleep patterns to stress levels – flowing into one centralised location, so users can stay focused on their workout.
“The last 18 months have shown us, more than ever before, how important it is to focus on our health and wellbeing,” said Deep Halder, Samsung Electronics UK Head of TV/AV Retail & Content Services. “We recognise that with the change in working routines for many people in the UK, flexibility has now become a key focus for users wishing to enhance their fitness routines, therefore we hope these industry leading apps, along with the seamless connectivity between our TV’s and the new Galaxy Watch4, will help redefine the boundaries of how people workout both at home and outside”.
A New Personal Trainer is Built into the Screen
Gone are the days when users can’t decide what workout to do next. Should users feel like they’re in a rut, Samsung Health can help them pick their next workout. Customers can choose from personalised recommendations based on their activity preference settings and explore new workouts from partners like Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and Echelon. And with Routines, users can set a schedule so their Smart TV will remind them it’s time to get to work to help them stay on track.
Users don’t need a personal trainer for a personalised at-home workout – Samsung Smart Trainer tracks and analyses posture in real-time while they work out. During and post-workout, Smart Trainer provides feedback on form, helps users to count their reps, and estimates calories burned. With video and interactive training via Bixby-enabled voice control, Smart Trainer elevates and personalises the home workout experience.
With a compatible camera connection, users can choose from dozens of classes to get direct feedback on their form and performance while they work. Whether users want to be more mindful through meditation or get stronger through HIIT classes, Samsung Health has a class for everyone.
Thanks to seamless connectivity and personalised workouts, Samsung Health is a perfect partner and a personal trainer for users and their workouts, both at home and outdoors with Samsung Smart TVs. Enjoy free premium classes, start new wellness routines and track workouts like never before by connecting all devices with Samsung Health.
