Samsung recommends that you repeat the calibration process once a month to ensure accurate readings. The convenience of being able to take measures wherever you are could be a huge boost for the Galaxy Watch series, especially for those worried about their blood pressure readings.
Samsung recommends using the Galaxy Watch Active2 – its latest model – for the best results. If you already own one, the ability to track blood pressure will be coming in a new software update. Once you’ve gone through the initial setup process, you’ll be able to select the “measure my blood pressure” setting from your Watch.
“The Samsung Health Monitor app has the potential to help millions of people around the world who are affected by high blood pressure,” said Taejong Jay Yang, Corporate SVP and Head of Health Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung in a statement. “This is one of many examples of how Samsung is integrating its best-in-class hardware with the latest software innovations to innovate mobile experiences.”
