Samsung to launch ECG monitoring feature on a smartwatch for 32 more countries

Samsung smartwatch was among the very first ones to launch ever since the trend of smartwatches started in the market. Ever since that time, smartwatches have evolved in a large way, trying to add as many features and making them as feature-rich as possible. One of the most popular features currently in smartwatches has to be ECG and blood oxygen monitoring, something that both Samsung and Apple have pioneered in the smartwatch category. 

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch3 and Watch Active2 both have hardware support for ECG monitoring, but it is taking a long time to show up for everyone since the feature has to be approved by each country’s health agencies. The feature was previously only exclusive to South Korea till September 2020 and later it was enabled in the US as well. Now the company is all set to offer the same ECG monitoring feature in 32 more countries. The reports have been leaked by SamMobile which claims that the Samsung Health Monitor app, which is required for blood pressure and ECG measurement monitoring, is now officially available from the Galaxy Store in 32 more regions. 

Most of the countries on the list are from Europe and a few from the Middle Eastern and Asian regions. The list of countries that have been added in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. The only requirement to use this feature is a Samsung Phone that has been paired with Samsung Watch.
