Leaked: Another Samsung Fitness Tracker That May Launch With The Galaxy S5

Men’s Fitness magazine calls Portland America’s fittest city. Is it? (Poll)

Sam Mobile says the images came from a leaked sales guide for the Galaxy S5. Unlike Samsung’s newly announced Gear Fit, which debuted at Mobile World Congress just weeks ago, the S Band doesn’t have a screen. This means the fitness tracker uses its sensors to gather health data and sends it to your smartphone, where you’ll be able to see information (burned calories, distance ran, etc.) through Samsung’s S Health app and Activity Tracker app. It’ll also be able to check your sleeping habits, the leaked brochure says: “Monitor your daily activities (Calories, Steps, Distance) and Sleep Efficiency.” Like some other wearable devices, the S Band claims it will send a buzz to your wrist if you’re receiving a call, an SMS message or if you stray too far from your phone.

Image: 9to5Mac The app features different categories that house personal information, such as bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, activity (steps), nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate and weight. Healthbook will be able to both store and track certain data points, such as heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation, but this implies (as rumored) upcoming iPhones will come with intelligent sensors that enable this type of tracking.

Meanwhile, an “Emergency Card” can store the user’s name, medications, doctor information and other key information that might be useful in case of a medical emergency.

Everything from food intake to blood sugar 9to5 provides several detailed screenshot recreations that show what Apple is reportedly developing. According to the mocks, Healthbook will use a card interface that surfaces information according to category. Users will be able to enter metrics pertaining to their weight, food intake, activity, and sleep habits. Crucially, the app will also endeavor to analyze “bloodwork,” which includes blood pressure and blood sugar levels. It is unclear how the app will source all this information in real-time especially in the realm of blood tracking but9to5 speculates that the app may rely on devices like the fitness-tracking headphones it recently patented , the iWatch, or an array of third-party devices like the Jawbone Up.

“There are only so many treadmills, and often only one studio or one room.” Cyrus attributes the rise of the specialty studios at least p90X3 partly to the time constraints of the Internet age. “One-stop shopping is why small spaces are doing well. It’s often the least amount of time for the maximum workout,” she said. “These days you want to consolidate because the time you’re exercising is that much time you’re off Facebook or Twitter or whatever.” But she noted that many successful one-note studios are beginning to diversify, with indoor cycling venues adding barre classes and yoga-based programs. “They are getting out of the box that people went to them for in the first place,” Cyrus said.
