Now various services for health and sports will be able to use each other's data.
Health Connect already supports more than 50 types of data in various categories, ranging from activity tracking and body characteristics to monitoring sleep cycles and diet.
Samsung Executive Vice President Taejong Jay Yang noted that Samsung Health will also switch to Health Connect later this year. With user permission, developers will be able to use the accurate and optimized data captured from the Galaxy Watch in their apps.
Health Connect is currently in open beta, available to all Android developers. In addition to Samsung, Google is also working with MyFitnessPal, Leap Fitness, and Withings as part of its early access program. Google Fit and Google-owned Fitbit are also set to roll out to Health Connect, meaning the technology should be available for the Pixel Watch later this year.
