Samsung has made its S Health app available on the Google Play Store to non-Galaxy Android phone users. The app is free to download.

Android users who don’t own a Galaxy device can now grab Samsung’s S Health app from the Google Play Store for free.

The app to date has only been available on Galaxy handsets, and is pre-loaded on higher-end devices at that. But now any Android user with a handset running Android 4.4 or later can download S Health from the Google Play Store.

It looks like a well-timed move by Samsung. Its Gear S2 smartwatch will be available from next month and plays nice with non-Samsung Android smartphones. And what better way to record the metrics from a Samsung wearable than by pairing it with Samsung’s health app.

S Health is capable of tracking steps and activity, food logging, and more, while it can also be used to set daily goals, and improve general fitness through training programs.

S Health is now available from the Google Play Store.
