It will bring the ECG recording and blood pressure measurement features it offers for Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 to users in more countries. The update will be distributed in 31 countries on February 4, most of them in Europe. The UK, Chile, Indonesia and UAE are also covered by the update.
ECG and blood pressure measurement functions were initially made available in the US and Samsung’s home country, South Korea. Approval from the European Union and other countries will bring these features to more users.
These functions will be used through the Samsung Health Monitor application. The application can be used by Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch 2 Active owners. ECG function makes it possible to monitor abnormalities in the heart rhythm. The blood pressure sensor allows users to see if their blood pressure is high or low. This makes it easier to identify potential health problems.
It is also available on Apple Watch Series 4, 5 and 6. The blood pressure measurement function is available in Samsung’s smart watches. In short, it can easily be said that the feature that makes the difference for Galaxy Watch 3 and Watch 2 Active is blood pressure measurement instead of ECG.
