"We are proud to announce lark's new partnership with Samsung and our personal health & wellness coaching service that will run on their incredible new flagship phone," said Julia Hu. "The Samsung Galaxy S5 and lark's Personal Assistant for Health and Wellness will change the way the world views their smart phone.  It's no longer just a communication device but a highly personalized lifestyle companion powered with tools like lark to support users as they improve their everyday lives. Without any additional wearable sensor, the phone can coach people on how to live healthier.  Not only does it keep track of users' physical activity throughout the day, the lark service will start learning the users' physical activity patterns and behaviors and suggesting the easiest ways for each person to get fitter and healthier."

Health and Wellness is a multi-billion dollar business and Lark has created a multi-OS platform that allows device manufacturers to leverage the Lark technology to create a truly immersive experience that can help the user live a healthier life.

Lark capitalizes on the new low power sensor hub in next generation phones to capture and interpret data in real-time, when it's most contextually relevant.  With Lark's patent-pending advanced behavioral analysis, machine learning technology, and its cloud-based Expert Recommendation Engine, users will experience the most contextual and personalized health and wellness applications that were never before possible.
