Should you find yourself without your phone, the accessory syncs with the S Health app via Bluetooth, so you’ll never miss out on recording your steps, calories burned and distance.

The S Band has the added bonus of measuring sleep efficiency as well as being waterproof up to a depth of 10 metres, which means the S Band can keep up with even the most adventurous smartphone owners!

As we become much more conscious of our health, tracking our progress in weight loss or muscle gain has become an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

To make it easier for you to keep track of your weight, Samsung have announced a body scale that will send the information straight to the S Health app via Bluetooth. This will allow you to keep a history of your weight while integrating this information with other health related information gathered by the S Health app, giving you a complete picture of your health in the palm of your hand.

Continuing on with expanding the capabilities of the S Health app, a Heart Rate Monitor will be released which will also sync via Bluetooth to the S Health app on the Galaxy S4. As the name implies, this accessory will gather details about your heart rate while you exercise so you can control the intensity of your workout, or if you just need to keep an eye on your heart rate throughout the day.

While covers for your smartphone are a great way of protecting the screen from scratches and offering some damage protection from drops, one fall back of a full cover is having to open it up to view any notifications you may have.

Samsung have designed a cover to give your phone full protection while also allowing you to get a sneak peek of any notifications. The S View Cover has a rectangular window at the top, which will show information like time, battery level, messages and caller ID information without having to open the cover.

The cover also automatically locks and unlocks the phone when it opens and closes.

If you’re an avid gamer, the game pad connects your S4 to a controller (similar in design to the Xbox’s controllers). It has a number of buttons, dual analog sticks, a traditional D-pad and shoulder buttons on the back. It also has NFC connectivity for quick Bluetooth pairing.

However, if your phone contract has locked you in with your current phone for while longer, Samsung says the Game Pad fits any smartphone with a screen size between 4in and 6.3in.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Wireless Charging Pad/ CoverWireless Charging Pad and Cover

One of the great features creeping into new smartphones is wireless charging, which will do away with the inconvenience of the always disappearing charger cable.

While the Galaxy S4 does not offer this functionality in-built, Samsung will offer a wireless charging pad and a special back battery cover as an optional accessory to bring wireless charging to the S4.

The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) said in a statement that “the new Samsung Galaxy S4 uses the Qi wireless charging standard in its optional back battery cover and wireless charging pad accessories, as demonstrated at Samsung Unpacked 2013″, which means that the accessories are fully compatible with all Qi chargers and Qi-compatible phones (of which there are plenty).

With all of the exciting and useful software features included in the S4, it would be no surprise to find that the battery may not last all that long. If you’re a frequent traveller, or you find yourself without a place to charge your phone, this could be an inconvenience.

That’s when an extra battery would come in very handy.

The extra battery kit from Samsung comes with a battery charger, to ensure that your spare battery is fully charged and ready to go when you need it. It also allows you to charge the phone and the spare battery all at once, adding another layer of convenience.

Even if you’re not prone to clumsiness, protective covers are always a good idea.

As indicated by the name, this cover is simply more durable than the flip covers, which will provide your S4 with better protection against drops and bumps.
