You could previously count steps, with the Galaxy S5 you can even monitor your heart rate. Thanks to the built-in heart rate back of the unit. So, you have a very smart fitness coach in your pocket now.
The S5 is waterproof and IP67 certified so he can against water and dust easily. The home button also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner for additional security.
