With the unprecedented disruption to the daily routine of people across the world, Samsung Electronics has announced its Smart TVs will now have access to six new health and wellness apps in partnership with leading fitness brands – barre3, Calm, Echelon, Fitplan, Jillian Michaels Fitness and obé Fitness.
Samsung and its partners are bringing consumers early access to over 5,000 hours of free at-home wellness content right with homebound consumers needing fitness solutions.
According to this South Korea-based company, these premium health and wellness apps will be fully integrated into Samsung Health, which will launch soon on 2020 Samsung Smart TVs, and will expand upon the suite of apps available currently. Samsung Health will provide consumers with more alternatives to traditional exercise options, like gyms and group classes, and adapt to each consumer’s unique schedule – allowing it to become a crucial pillar of our consumers’ daily routines for years to come.
Emphasising on the importance of homebound consumers to have access to free high-quality health and wellness offerings, Salek Brodsky, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development for Samsung Electronics, said, “Our partnership with these premium brands redefines the boundaries of what free streaming services can provide, and we look forward to enhancing these offerings by bringing a full Samsung Health experience to our TVs later this year.”
Currently, more than 250 instructive videos are available now – from barre classes and guided meditations, to celebrity-led personal training sessions – for Samsung Smart TV consumers to access from home.
In addition to these fitness apps, Samsung Electronics has also announced that the Samsung Health Monitor app has been cleared by South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS), as a Software as a Medical Device (SaMD). The Samsung Health Monitor app, when paired with advanced sensor technology on the Galaxy Watch Active2.1 enables you to easily and more conveniently measure and track your blood pressure.
“The Samsung Health Monitor app has the potential to help millions of people around the world who are affected by high blood pressure,” says Taejong Jay Yang, Corporate SVP and Head of Health Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.
According to Samsung, “Once your Galaxy Watch Active2 device has been calibrated with a traditional cuff, you can simply tap to “Measure” your blood pressure anytime, anywhere.” The device measures blood pressure through pulse wave analysis, which is tracked with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors.
