Samsung Galaxy Watch can now track your blood pressure

June 18, 2020


This feature is only available in South Korea at the moment.

Samsung has released its new Health Monitor App in South Korea. The groundbreaking new software makes it possible for wearers of the Galaxy Watch to use the device to track their blood pressure levels. Although this feature won’t replace traditional blood pressure measurement cups, it does make keeping track of blood pressure while on the fly easier. You still need to use a traditional measurement device every 4 weeks to calibrate the Galaxy Watch Active 2 – the only device that offers this functionality. Samsung has said that ECG capabilities will hit the new app and Galaxy Watch Active 2 later this year. Thus far, no plans have been announced to roll out these features outside of South Korea.
