We are developing an app for long term patients, which should include smart-wearables for symptom tracking. In the first phase we want to use samsung hardware for that. Not all patients have samsung phones though. Is there a way to access tracked data on android phones, without samsung health installed?
Welcome to Samsung Developer Community.
If you want to access Samsung Health app’s data, you need to integrate Samsung Health SDK in your app. Read details from from here.
If you want to get Samsung watch’s data then you need to integrate Galaxy Accessory SDK. Devices with Android 4.3 or higher support Accessory SDK (since they are equipped with the Samsung Accessory Service Framework). Samsung Health app is not required in this case.
thanks for the reply.
To make sure I understand correctly, I can access health data on the watch through Galaxy Accessory SDK? How long is the tracked data stored on the watch?
To access and record sensor data from Samsung smart watches, you have to develop a Tizen application for watch using Tizen Studio. You can download Tizen Studio from here . Please find the installation guide here . You can check out the prerequisite for Tizen studio in this link .
You can develop your app in Web/ Native/ .Net. Choose your platform and get started to develop Tizen app following the below link: https://docs.tizen.org/application/get-started/wearable/
Tizen offers Sensor API to access sensor data from the device. Please check out the following links for implementation details.
As @Jakia.Sultana mentioned in her comment, Samsung offers Accessory SDK to establish communication between the Tizen app and Android app. Please check out the following links for implementation details.
