Samsung Galaxy S4 S Band, HRM & Body Scale

Alongside the Galaxy S4 will sit three new health gadgets including the S Band, which, like the Nike Fuelband will record your steps. However unlike the Fuelband it’ll work with both the Heart Rate Monitor and the Body Scale sending all the info to your S4 building up an accurate picture of how much exercise you’re doing.

 

Samsung Galaxy S4 Wireless Gamepad prototype

The surprise appearance of the evening however goes to this Galaxy S4 Wireless gaming controller. It’s still in the prototype stages but Samsung have confirmed it uses Bluetooth and will work with both the Note 2 and even possibly the Note 8.0.

 

Samsung S View Cover

The official case for the Galaxy S4 looks much like the old flip cover the S3. This time, a letterbox cut-out at the top of the case displays part of the screen when the case is closed, so to speak. The phone recognises when the cover is on, and it displays important info - time, notifications, that sort of thing - at the top of the screen, so it is viewable through the letterbox apps.
