Share this story

Samsung is partnering with a number of services to provide free trials and subscriptions to owners of its latest Galaxy S5 flagship. While the usual 50GB of Dropbox storage is included, Samsung is also supplying between three and 12 months (dependant on country) of Evernote Premium, and a 12-month subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Most of the bundles are health-related services, as Samsung continues to focus on fitness tracking with the Galaxy S5. A year-long subscription to fitness tracking service RunKeeper is included, alongside six-month trials of pace-tracking service MapMyFitness and workout trainer Skimble. A 12-month subscription to Lark, another health service, is also included.

All offers come with the Galaxy S5, as long as carriers don't opt out

Samsung describes the offers as "lifestyle-focused," another clear sign of the company’s continued push into health and fitness. Most of the subscription services will compliment Samsung’s revamped S Health app, and a new heart-rate sensor on the Galaxy S5. Samsung has partnered with 16 companies in total for its "Galaxy gifts." As long as carriers don’t opt out of some of the promotions, all of the subscriptions and offers will come bundled with the Galaxy S5.
