The typical Samsung Pay customer uses the app 3x more than those who just have an NFC payment app.
later in 2016, Samsung Pay will be expanding!
"Aren't you ready to get rid of your wallet now?"
It's expanding to the UK, spain, canada, australia and brazil.
(Samsung definitely still needs to step up its bank offerings, but the country expansion shows that they're committed to expansion)
Alright, moving from Samsung Pay to connected auto
how big is the connected car opportunity?
only 100 million are connected today
but in 2020 ... the possibilities are huge
Cars are one of the biggest hardware platforms after the smartphone
Samsung's "connect auto" hardware is an easy way to get your car connected for all sorts of applications
As much as you might crave a new car, you're probably keeping the car you own.
Connect Auto can bring connectivity to all of these cars
"We've essentially built a tiny smartphone plug-in for your car"
LTE, sensors, processors, memory ... all with one device
developers can build apps for the device, of course
how about an app that can help car owners lower insurance rates?
what if an ecommerce company can deliver items directly to the trunk of my car?
it takes a partnership with AT&T for the connectivity
but also car makers, insurance companies, and developers
And now the automotive portion is quickly over.
It's time to talk health, and of course that means the Gear S2 as well
"Sadly the current health care system falls short of needs"
"hospitals and insurance companies want to find lower-cost ways while providing even better care"
"here at samsung, we see opportunities"
having all of your data collected into one place is great
S Health has 150 million users in 130 countries
But it's not just about the numbers, it's about the individual users
they say that the app is a great motivator
people are achieving their health goals using S Health, which is the biggest thing
S Health is another tool to helping people build good habits
what does this mean for developers? Well S Health is a platform, of course
outside third-party services can tap into the S Health SDK
data isn't in a silo, it's moved safely between apps
KNOX is coming to Samsung phones to protect health data the same way anything else can be
samsung already has plenty of partnerships with health institutes and fitness companies
"Let's build the future of health together"
alright, moving onto Samsung's music software, Sound Camp
