Samsung Health on Samsung Smartwatches – the Ultimate Fitness Companion
The newly enhanced Samsung Health interface on Samsung wearables and smartwatches features more at-a-glance information, a workout countdown, GPS and heart rate tracking information, all available with the tap of a button. With the latest update, users can now choose from 39 different exercises and track their fitness progress when they pair with a Samsung wearable device or smartwatch. The latest Samsung smartwatch, Galaxy Watch, also allows the application to detect one of the 39 different exercises, and record data even when users switch between activities – such as from running to cycling – tracking the entire workout from start to finish5.
Users can get more out of their Samsung smartwatch, even when the workout is over, with Samsung Health’s new wellness and stress management features. With ‘Sleep Stage Detection,’ users can track their sleep cycles to improve sleep habits. Users can also manage stress in real-time through heart rate and heart rate variability monitoring, as well as with a guided breathing exercise program.
Samsung Health’s Telehealth Offerings Put You in Control
Samsung Health strives to provide more intuitive and accessible healthcare options for consumers globally. Samsung Health includes ‘Symptom Checker’ and ‘Ask an Expert6,’ which allow users to access medical information, look up symptoms, manage prescriptions and even chat live with certified doctors, all within a single application. Additionally, Samsung Health has built a partner ecosystem with well-known health brands, like Babylon (UK) and American Well (US), creating many more ways for users to improve their health and wellbeing.
Since its launch in 2012, “S Health”, a basic nutrition and fitness tracker available on select Galaxy smartphones, has grown to “Samsung Health,” a comprehensive digital health platform. It now includes interactive health features – such as telemedicine, competitions and personalized tips – across a broad range of Samsung and non-Samsung devices.

Genesis announced the Mint Concept
eoul, Korea., February 6, 2020 — Today, Genesis announced that the 2020 G90 and Mint Concept won 2019 GOOD DESIGN® awards in the Transportation category. Genesis has been a GOOD DESIGN® award winner for five consecutive years including the G90 in 2015, the Vision G concept in 2016, the GV80 concept in 2017 and the Essentia concept & G70 in 2018.
“As a relatively new brand, Genesis has introduced a design that greatly resonates with the luxury car market,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Executive Vice President, Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor Group. “The G90 is the embodiment of flagship transportation while the Mint reinterprets what a luxurious, city-focused runabout could be. The GOOD DESIGN® awards are a high water mark we aim for each time we put pen to paper.”
The GOOD DESIGN® awards, which began in 1950 and marked its 69th anniversary in 2019, are recognized for its legitimacy and authority, and selects award-winning works in each field with a focus on comprehensive evaluations of products such as aesthetic, innovative, new technology, form, concept, function, utility, energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.
The 2019 GOOD DESIGN® awards were selected among about 900 entries from 38 countries worldwide.
The 2020 G90 incorporates new-car-level design changes on the exterior and interior, further enhancing its presence as the brand’s flagship sedan through the themes of Athletic Elegance and Horizontal Architecture. G-Matrix, a Genesis design hallmark inspired by light reflecting from an illuminating diamond, is applied to the headlights and taillights to emphasize refined proportions and balanced architecture. The 2020 G90 introduces multiple technology firsts for the Genesis brand, including a 12.3-inch display navigation system with touchscreen controls, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an unparalleled level of standard active and passive safety systems as part of a brand-level commitment to passenger security and comfort. All Genesis vehicles, including the 2020 G90, offer complimentary Service Valet: the exclusive, no-cost, consumer-focused service program that elevates the luxury vehicle ownership experience.
The Mint Concept introduces an all-electric luxury car for the city and represents a new vehicle typology, featuring organic design and an innovative in-car experience. The lightweight runabout reimagines the iconic shape of the city car, tailored to the needs of modern lifestyle. Mint is both highly manoeuvrable and exhilarating to drive. The overall motif skews to the sportier side of Athletic Elegance while the G-Matrix pattern serves a functional purpose, used for efficient cooling and airflow circulation around the battery floor. It is also the basis for the Mint Concept’s aerodynamic wheel design and several interior structures and flourishes. In lieu of a conventional trunk and rear hatch, the Mint Concept features a parcel shelf accessed via scissor-style side openings.
Like a carefully furnished city dwelling, its interior takes advantage of every cubic inch. The cozy space is made to feel expansive, through the use of lightweight textiles, cognac leather and mullion-free windows. Ingress and egress are made easier, thanks to the automatic swivelling of the instrument panel and bench seat. The versatility of the Mint Concept extends to the engineering of its high-density, battery-electric powertrain, which is capable of an estimated 200 miles per full charge and 350-KW fast recharging.
