Health Connect is a platform and API (application programming interface) developed by Google and Samsung that allows developers to sync users’ health data between Android apps and devices. Users should be able to keep track of their health and fitness data more easily across many devices as a result of this.
The feature is primarily designed to give developers a better toolkit for syncing fitness data from wearable devices or user input to the app that controls it.
The new API will then assist users in better managing their data and provide a better picture of what their lifestyle is now experiencing. It takes a multi-platform approach, allowing more data to be shared across different fitness apps.
In a news release, Samsung senior vice president TaeJong Jay Yang said,
“We’re working alongside Google and other partners to realize the full benefits and potential of Health Connect. I’m thrilled to announce that later this year, Samsung Health will also adopt Health Connect.”
With users’ consent, app developers will be able to use the accurate and optimized data measured on the Galaxy Watch for Samsung Health in their own apps.
