Samsung Canada Redefines Holistic Health + Wellness with New and Expanded Features
Available exclusively through the Samsung Health Monitor app
Samsung Canada is encouraging users to reach their wellness goals with advanced health monitoring tools, made available in Canada through the Samsung Health Monitor app. Designed to conquer better living every day, the Galaxy Watch4 Series is now equipped to help categorize and track a wide range of new and recently released health and wellness offerings.
Cutting-edge wellness features include BioActive Sensor technology and Advanced Sleep & Continuity SPO2, offering some of Samsung’s most advanced wellness capabilities to date. Insights from the BioActive sensor, which measures Optical Heart Rate and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, can be seen on the app— so users can monitor their heart rate and blood oxygen level.
Also, new blood pressure monitoring and electrocardiogram (ECG) features – which, together, are the first in Canada launched on a smartwatch, will be available to help complete an expansive suite of tools for monitoring fitness and overall wellness on the Samsung Health Monitor app through the Galaxy Watch4 Series.
“The needs of today’s smartwatch user is continuously evolving. With this new software update, Samsung is providing access to meaningful data and insights to support Canadians in advancing their health and wellness goals,” said Raj Doshi, Head of Mobile Business, Samsung Canada. “We are excited to introduce these new features and innovations as part of our wider commitment to redefining holistic wellness.”
This offering has been combined with previously released features, including the Body Composition measurement tool, which provides users with an understanding of their general wellness and fitness, with key measurements like skeletal muscle mass, basal metabolic rate, body water and body fat percentage. Whether a user is looking to get active, or is focusing on a unique improvement journey, data from the Samsung Health Monitor app and useful tips and reminders allows them to make informed decisions about their wellness.
With a suite of advanced features to fit you and your lifestyle, the Galaxy Watch4 Series is a powerful companion that’s built to keep your life on track while making a stylish statement wherever you go. In addition, Galaxy device continuity allows users to access their insights into their overall wellness across different devices including select Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
Blood Pressure Measurement
The Galaxy Watch4 Series measures blood pressure through pulse wave analysis, which is tracked with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors. Users can simply tap it to measure their blood pressure at their convenience and see results on their Galaxy smartphone Samsung Health Monitor app.
The new electrocardiogram feature on the Galaxy Watch4 Series works by analyzing the heart’s electrical activity, classifying it as either a Sinus Rhythm (a normal, regular heartbeat) or AFib (when the heart beats irregularly). Users who receive an AFib reading are encouraged to consult with their qualified health professional to address any questions or concerns. Being able to monitor heart health on a regular basis allows users to be more informed on their overall health.
Users must have the Samsung Health Monitor app installed on their Galaxy Watch4 Series device and their Galaxy smartphone to take blood pressure and electrocardiogram measurements. The Samsung Health Monitor app update will be available on the Galaxy Watch4 Series starting April 20, 2022.
