When it comes to the health of yourself or a loved one, it's important to know that mobile devices can assist in monitoring health issues. Today's mobile devices, along with health and wellness apps, can help simplify and enhance our lives. As February is American Heart Month, it is a great time to familiarize yourself with what your mobile device can do for you and your health.

With the appropriate smartphone, users with a Samsung Galaxy S5, an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus can access critical medical data, monitor their heart rate, calories consumed and burned, as well as their steps taken throughout a day - all on one device. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 34 percent of smartphone users have used a phone to help lose weight or improve their health. Of those, 66 percent have used an app to keep track of exercise or other fitness activities.
