Samsung is hoping to make the fitness app world forget about fitness and fitness bands in a big way.
The company has launched the world’s first fitness app to compete with Google Fit, the world leader in fitness apps.
The Samsung Fitness app has already been downloaded over 200 million times, and its launch was timed to coincide with the Samsung Galaxy S5 unveiling at a New York City event this week.
Samsung’s app is aimed at athletes, fitness enthusiasts and those looking to do more with their fitness routine.
The app has a simple yet sophisticated interface that allows users to create their own workout routine, and it can be easily shared with their friends via Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp.
“We’re taking fitness to the next level,” said the company’s Chief Product Officer and head of fitness, Mr Lee Jae-yong.
Users can easily add their own personal workout schedules and workouts, and the app will let them set up their own custom workouts and activity trackers.
Users can also track their progress and challenge themselves by adding their own achievements, as well as showing a chart of their progress.
The Samsung Fitness platform will be integrated into Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7, which will be released in May.
The Samsung Galaxy Fitness app is available in the US and Canada, and is currently available for download.
The firm said that the launch was planned ahead of the Galaxy 5 launch on March 24.
