I just got this tablet and ordered a Gear Fit, but i discovered that S Health is not available for samsung tablet, i can't really understand why

Any way to get it without root? As far as i know root enable knox counter, even i did not see a knox app on tablet

I will have time to root the tab and play with it for weekend, but tried similar thing with Nexus4, to connect it with gear fit, and It worked...

I tried installing S Health on a Galaxy Tab 4 to sync with a Gear Fit. I couldn't even complete the install. How did you install S Health without root?

I did find an app called Endomondo that allows gear fit to connect, but does not appear to pull the Gear Fit data into the Endomondo app.

Sorry chinook 65, looks like they've just abandoned gear fit with SW support, which is pity, as it could be a great device...I've bought Sony SW3 in the meantime, and sold my gear fit...
