Samsung Teams up with Calm to Provide More Health Services
Samsung Electronics is working with Calm, the number 1 app for sleep, meditation and relaxation, giving consumers access to the service via Samsung Health.
The South Korean company is integrating Calm into the Samsung Health platform, which launched in 2013 and hasover 60 million monthly active users, according to Samsung.
Users need to tap the “Mindfulness” icon in their Samsung Health app, follow the steps to sync or create their Calm account, and get personalized features, designed to help reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia and aid relaxation and focus. With this integration, users, for example, can quickly access their favorite Calm meditation programs through Samsung Health on their smartphones and use the new Galaxy Watch Active to pause and play meditation sessions and track their stress levels after a session ends.
Starting from today, March 4, the service will initially be available with Samsung smartphones running Android Pie OS, including the new Galaxy S10 line, in 10 markets: Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, U.S., U.K. and Ireland. The Calm integration will be also available to Galaxy Watch Active users.
The latest Samsung Health app can be downloaded via the Samsung Galaxy Store or Google Play Store.
