Samsung adds at-home wellness platform to 2020 range of smart TVs

Samsung Electronics is making its digital fitness platform available for free on its entire 2020 range of smart TV models.

The Samsung Health platform boasts more than 5,000 hours of free wellness activities – ranging from yoga, mindfulness, strength training and stretching to barre, pilates, dance and cardio workouts.

It enables consumers to connect to premium content, a personalised performance dashboard, goal-based challenges, and intelligent features designed to keep them motivated and focused on achieving their wellness goals.

Premium brands featured on the platform include Calm, obé fitness, barre3, Echelon, Fitplan, and Jillian Michaels Fitness.

The move to add Samsung Health to its TVs has been partly inspired by the huge increase in people undertaking exercise at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having it available on TVs means that Samsung Health will now sync across various digital devices – smartphones, wearables and the smart TVs.

While the TVs won’t be able to track the users' fitness – as they do not have any sensors to do so – users can tap into their devices and present the data on a unified dashboard and store it in the cloud.

“The whole intention of Samsung Health is to motivate our consumers to live healthier lives by meeting them wherever they are, across Samsung platforms,” said Won-Jin Lee, executive vice president of service business at Samsung Electronics.

“We knew that to do this, we needed to develop a user-centric and immersive platform that offered a variety of in-home fitness and wellness options.

"Given the current climate, we hope that the launch of Samsung Health makes it easier for our consumers to prioritize their physical and mental wellbeing on a daily basis.”
