What I need?
If you already have a Galaxy Watch3 or a Galaxy Watch Active2, you will need to update the Samsung Health Monitor app for blood pressure monitoring and EKG functions to become available on both watches. At the end of this article we will tell you how to download the application.
Why is it coming now?
Everything has been a matter of permits. The European community has not extended the CE certificate to the application Samsung Health Monitor until recently, since it was in December 2020 when Samsung finally managed to obtain the necessary permits that guarantee that the application and the functions comply with the safety, health and environmental requirements of the EU.
Thanks to this certificate, a large list of countries in Europe can finally offer advanced monitoring functions for blood pressure and electrocardiograms, and are as follows: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, UK, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
How can I do an electrocardiogram?
Atrial fibrillation arrhythmias affect more than 33.5 million people worldwide, and they reproduce like an abnormal heart rhythm. This usually leads to heart complications, blood clots or heart failure, so many users are interested in being able to do a quick check-up that allows them to be alert to future heart problems.
That’s where the electrocardiogram functions come in, a function that finally comes to the Galaxy Watch and that is very easy to perform. Just open the Samsung Health Monitor app and select the ECG option to start the measurement. You must take into account the following details:
- Try to be seated and relaxed
- Rest the hand in which you are placing the watch on a table or flat surface
- Tap the pad of the index finger of the opposite hand on the top button for 30 seconds.
When the process is complete, you will obtain the heart rate and rhythm data, as well as a classification of sinus rhythm (normal rhythm) or AFib (irregular rhythm).
How can I measure my blood pressure?
In the case of blood pressure, a high or uncontrolled value can be related to brain, kidney and heart disease. With the help of smart watches we can measure blood pressure by analyzing the pulse wave of our wrist.
To start the blood pressure analysis we just have to start the Samsung Health Monitor application and start the Blood Pressure function. The system will take care of making a measurement and returning the resulting values analyzing calibration and change of blood pressure.
Where can I download the application?
To get the new version of the Samsung Smart Monitor application, you will only have to update your watch to the latest version (remember that the compatible models are the Watch3 and the Watch Active2), and also install the application on your phone so that everything works correctly .
But we will have to wait, since this update will not be available in UK until next February 22. It will be then when your watch receives the application and you can make your first reviews from the sofa at home.
