Samsung Health is quite a capable health app, but Samsung does like adding features. Now, they are working with Calm, an app designed for sleep, meditation and relaxation. The calm app has received over 40 million downloads, so, there must be something there! Samsung health itself has over 60 million monthly active users.
Samsung sees the Calm app as something that will help S Health users manage their everyday stress. There are programs for beginners and also more advanced users.
“Our work with Calm is going to make it easier than ever for Samsung Health users to practice mindfulness, so they can work towards achieving better overall health,” said Peter Koo, Corporate SVP and Head of the Health Service Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We’re excited to be partnering with Calm, a true innovator in the mindfulness space, to support better mental health for consumers around the world.”
Users need to create a Calm account, which can be accessed from the Samsung Health App. Both apps then sync with each other. Samsung claims the Calm app can help you with stress, anxiety, insomnia and aid relaxation and focus.
Calm meditation programs are accessed through Samsung Health on your smartphone. You can also use the new Galaxy Watch Active to pause and play meditation sessions and track their stress levels after a session ends.
“Over 100,000 new people are downloading Calm each day, as more people are looking to technology to provide better wellness experiences,” said Alex Will, Chief Strategy Officer at Calm. “We’re excited to work with a global partner like Samsung to bring the very best of Calm to new platforms, and enable millions of users to benefit from lower stress, less anxiety and more restful sleep.”
