Samsung blood pressure monitoring apps for Galaxy Watch Active 2 now rolling out

19 June 2020 0

Samsung has begun rolling out the blood pressure monitoring app for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 in South Korea. Samsung announced the app in April and promised to make it available in the third quarter of this year, but interestingly, the app has come early to delight its users.

The update to the Watch Active 2 was announced in the Samsung community forum. The functionality lets you track your blood pressure without the need for special equipment. But it requires the cuff at the time of setting up the functionality for once.


To monitor the blood pressure app on the Galaxy Watch Active 2, users will need to first calibrate the smartwatch and the app with a traditional cuff. Once the functionality is set, users will be able to measure the blood pressure anytime, anywhere through pulse wave analysis. The app does so with the help of wrist sensors on the wearable.

The Samsung Health Monitor app will then determine the blood pressure by analyzing the relationship between the calibration value and blood pressure change.

In related news, Samsung is yet to enable the ECG support on the Galaxy Watch Active 2. The feature had already received clearance in South Korea so its launch is also imminent and Samsung had promised to make it available in Q3 this year. Currently, it is unknown if Samsung has any plans to bring both the features to other regions outside of South Korea.
