Samsung has launched the Samsung Health Monitor application in India, enabling the activation of blood pressure and ECG measurement features on all company smartwatches with compatible hardware. The Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 series are the first to receive these capabilities through a software update.
In India, the Galaxy Watch 5 series has received a 11.67 MB software update with firmware number R9xxFXXU1BWL1, while the Galaxy Watch 4 series will be updated with firmware number R8xxXXU1HWL1. These updates activate blood pressure and ECG measurement features on smartwatches from both lines.
Available in India via Samsung Health Monitor
Although these features provide users with the ability to measure blood pressure and ECG directly from their watches, it is important to note that devices like the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 should not be considered medical devices due to the lack of clinical accuracy in measurements. Users are recommended to calibrate their smartwatches with a suitable blood pressure monitor for more accurate readings.
These updates represent a significant step for Samsung in enabling blood pressure and ECG monitoring features on existing smartwatches in India.
