The Galaxy Watch might help families keep track of each other’s health

What you need to know

  • A dive into the Samsung Health app’s latest version showed signs of a new feature that might let users share their health data with family.
  • Users can send a request to share health data, and parents must provide consent for their child to use the Health app to collect and display their data.
  • Speculation suggests this could hit the Galaxy Watch 7, which had its entire spec sheet leaked yesterday (July 1) along with the Watch Ultra.

It seems Samsung is developing a new family-oriented health feature for its Galaxy Watch portfolio analytic overviews.

An APK deep dive by X tipster Assemble Debug and Android Authority held all the details, showcasing Samsung’s development of “family health data.” While most functionality remained hidden, some basic information, like the feature’s uses, was obtained. An “About” page states the feature lets you “track everyone’s progress” after creating a family group through your Samsung account.
