Samsung recently collaborated with Google to launch Health Connect, a new API that will sync and track your fitness data across applications and devices. It enables developers to safely access the new set of APIs (Application programming interfaces) from various apps and allows users to sync all data.
TaeJong Jay Yang, Executive Vice President of Samsung, noted in the article:
“With the new Health Connect API, users will have a comprehensive set of controls to manage their health and fitness data across apps,”
“This isn’t just a proof of concept,” he continued. “We’re working alongside Google and other partners to realize the full benefits and potential of Health Connect.”
It can store up to 50 different sorts of data, including exercise, sleep, diet, heart rate, blood pressure, body measurement, and more.
Google’s Chris Wilk, a senior product manager, also noted on their blog:
“We’re building this new unified platform in collaboration with Samsung to simplify connectivity between apps,”
Developers are invited to review the Health Connect API guide, download the SDK, access code examples on Github, and join up for the open beta via Google Play.
This will be a fantastic tool that will assist users who track their fitness statistics in living a healthy lifestyle.
