Yes, the new Samsung Galaxy S4 will have an app called “S Health” that includes blood glucose software for monitoring your blood sugars, and get this, it will import those readings from select blood glucose meters! I can’t even convey how excited I am about this!!! I never really talk about what I do for a living on my blog, but I’m going to tell you now. I work in an android call center for a major cell phone company. When you’re android phone doesn’t work and you call your cell phone provider for help, you could end up talking to me. I’ve actually talked to a few diabetic cell phone customers, about our diabetes, while troubleshooting their bill or their phone. So I’m surrounded by cell phone news and information all the time. I already have the Galaxy S3, and this S Health app is suppose to already be released “internationally”. Bad for me, good for you! That is if you’re one of my international readers. Once the Galaxy S4 drops, I’m sure they’ll release it for the Galaxy S3 here in the United States.
So that’s not the only thing this S Health app will do. It also includes a food tracker, a fitness tracker, a built in pedometer, can sync to a special weight scale, blood pressure monitor, and heart rate monitor that Samsung makes, and it even measures the temperature and humidity of the room you’re in to rate the “comfort level” for you. Oh! It also somehow has some sort of sleep monitor.
Now, take a moment . . . . . think about how freaking cool it would be, to have your food diary, your fitness diary, your blood sugar diary, a pedometer, your blood pressure, your heart rate, all in a single device. A device that you always have with you. How freakin’ cool is that going to be?! Are you as stoked as I am?!!! Below you’ll find a CNET video describing the Galaxy S4, as well as the Samsung press release for it to get you started with your research.
