One of the biggest additions to the S4 suite of apps is S Health. As its name suggests, S Health is a handy tool that looks to provide you with various information and tracking software to help track your weight and exercise levels. The app outlines what your daily targets for weight loss should be and stores all the necessary data for later referencing. For those who are really serious about monitoring their weight, S Health also includes a range of charts, graphs and interactive data to help provide you with one of the most comprehensive health apps available to users.
