Sprint has announced the launch of Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, an exclusive Spark-enabled smartphone featuring health and fitness solutions from Under Armour and MapMyFitness.
Sprint will provide mobile access to fitness tracking, educational information, and music, as well as applications to help consumers as they exercise, watch what they eat and take better care of themselves.
S Health, an integrated mobile health platform to access health info, map out workouts, and make healthier eating choices, is one of the major features of the smartphone. It even monitors heart rate before and after activity with a built-in heart-rate monitor.
Samsung’s exclusive Activity Zone app is preloaded on Galaxy S 5 Sport offering the ability to open active lifestyle features, including a barometer, compass, flashlight and stopwatch from a single screen.
Galaxy S 5 Sport features a textured body making the smartphone easier to hold. It features three hard keys so the smartphone is easier to operate when active. The Galaxy S5 Sport is also IP67 water and dust resistant.
The device will serve as the launch pad for Sprint Fit Live, a complete mobile health and fitness package giving customers instant access to their favorite fitness applications and activities, relevant health information when they want it and integration capability with their Spotify playlists. Sprint Fit Live also will be available on all new Sprint Android-powered smartphones in 2014.
Customers who purchase Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport will also get $50 off on Samsung Gear Fit to help achieve health and fitness goals by tracking steps and monitoring heart rate.
