The Galaxy S5 is the Perfect Workout Partner

Samsung Galaxy 5S The Next Big thing #VZWBuzz

I am so excited with the arrival of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 that was delivered to my home yesterday!

The first feature that jumped out to me is the Heart Rate Monitor app that comes with this smartphone.

This is a new tool in the Samsung Galaxy S5 and I believe that this can be a game changer for smartphone usage since this does tool does not require any additional apparatus.

Using it is as simple as selecting the heart-rate monitor icon from within Samsung’s newly-updated S Health app, which comes preloaded in the Galaxy S5. Then, you place your index finger on the center of the flash module, just to the right of the flash.
