Samsung announced its new Samsung Health Monitor app for its Galaxy Watch and now the app has released in South Korea.
The app is available for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 in South Korea and it can be used to monitor blood pressure. Samsung has also said that the app will support Electrocardiogram (ECG) tracking in Q3.
To monitor blood pressure on the Galaxy Watch Active2, users will need to first calibrate with a traditional cuff. They will then be able to tap to “Measure” the blood pressure, anywhere through pulse wave analysis via the Galaxy Watch Active2 wrist sensors. The Samsung Health Monitor app examines the relationship between the calibration value and the blood pressure change to learn the blood pressure.
When you take your blood pressure with the Galaxy Watch Active2, the measurement outcomes can be synced to the Samsung Health Monitor app on your Galaxy phone. You can track your blood pressure by days, weeks, or months and choose to share this information with your doctor for evaluation or consultation.
