Using the Samsung Health Monitor app, Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 users can use blood pressure and electrocardiogram monitoring benefits to remain updated about their health everywhere they go and whenever they want.
In December 2020, the Samsung Health Monitor app received a CE labeling, which enabled the service to expand to 28 European countries. A CE branding is an administrative sign highlighting that a product meets the criteria of the EU for protection, health, and the environment.
This will now allow users in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom to benefit from advanced blood pressure and electrocardiogram monitoring in a simple and convenient way. In addition, Chile, Indonesia, and the UAE are all being added to the Samsung Health Monitor app, bringing the total to 31 new countries.
“Nearly one million people have used the Samsung Health Monitor app to manage their health since its initial launch in Korea last June,” said TaeJong Jay Yang, Corporate SVP and Head of Health Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We’re committed to bringing this innovative health service to more people across the world, and the latest expansion marks a major milestone in our mission.”
Blood Pressure Measurement
High blood pressure is usually associated with diseases of the brain, kidneys, and heart and can lead to stroke and coronary heart disease if left untreated. Via the Samsung Health Monitor app, Galaxy smartwatches are able to calculate blood pressure, which provides users with greater insight into health and encourages them to make more informed wellness decisions.
When a traditional cuff has been calibrated on your Galaxy Watch3 or Galaxy Watch Active2, you can simply tap “Measure” your blood pressure at any moment, anywhere. Via pulse wave analysis, which is monitored with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors, the system measures blood pressure. To assess blood pressure, the software then analyses the relationship between the calibration value and the change in blood pressure.
The function of the electrocardiogram works by measuring the electrical activity of the heart on the Galaxy Watch3 or Galaxy Watch Active2 through a sensor.
When you are comfortably seated, simply open the Samsung Health Monitor app and make sure the watch is securely attached to your wrist. Then, put your forearm on a flat surface and lightly place a fingertip on the top button on the smartwatch for 30 seconds from the opposite side. Your heart rate and rhythm will then be calculated by the app, which will be labeled as either Sinus Rhythm (a natural, daily heartbeat) or AFib.
Users can take blood pressure and electrocardiogram measurements, but first, they need to install the Samsung Galaxy health app on both the Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 and their smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy Health app will be installed automatically when the users update their Galaxy smartwatch software to the latest version via the Galaxy Wearable app. The smartwatch app then opens a connection that guides users to the Galaxy Store app’s smartphone app download page.
Starting on February 4th, the Samsung Health Monitor app update will gradually be available on Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2.
