The Body composition screen has a straightforward interface. On the top, you see a line graph with time. The app shows the last 7 entries, but you can swipe right to see more.

You also see your last entry below the graph. The app also shows your weight and BMI according to your height set in the app settings.

If your weight and BMI are high, you will see the bars finishing in red color. The green suggests normal, and the light green suggests low weight.

How Samsung Health can help

Samsung Health has more features than any other digital health app. First, you can utilize the food tracking feature to add and track your food. This will help you see the total calories you consume.

You can track and record your sleep to see how many calories you are burning in your sleep.

Furthermore, the app can track your steps and calculate calories automatically, and measuring workouts is just a few taps away.

In my tests, Samsung Health was accurate in counting calories, so you can trust the app.


Samsung Health’s weight management feature is impressive, and it’s perfect for users who want to maintain and reduce weight without paying someone.
