BP and ECG monitoring features now available in the PH with the latest update of the Galaxy Watch5 Series
Filipino users can now monitor their blood pressure and heart rate with the Galaxy Watch5 Series. Here’s how:
The watch that knows your health best just got better as the Galaxy Watch5 Series can now help you track your blood pressure and heart rate with its latest update. Easily monitor these key health indicators through the powerful Samsung BioActive sensor on the Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro.
Accurate Health Monitoring, Made Easy
To enable the blood pressure monitoring feature, install the Samsung Health Monitor application onto your Galaxy smartphone and connect it to your compatible Galaxy Watch then calibrate with a traditional cuff. They will then be able to tap to “measure” the blood pressure anytime, anywhere.
The Galaxy Watch5 measures blood pressure through pulse wave analysis, which is tracked with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors. The program then records the relationship between the calibration value and the blood pressure change to determine the blood pressure. Once the calibration and set-up process are completed, users can access this information and export measurements to PDF.
Meanwhile, the electrocardiogram (ECG) function works by recording the heart’s electrical activity via a sensor on the compatible Galaxy Watch. All you need to do is open your Samsung Health Monitor app while seated comfortably, and ensure the watch is fitted firmly to your wrist. Next, rest your forearm on a flat surface and lightly place a fingertip from the opposite hand on the top button on the smartwatch for 30 seconds.
The app will then measure your heart rate and rhythm, which will be displayed as either a Sinus Rhythm (a normal, regular heartbeat) or AFib (when the heart beats irregularly). You can also export this data to PDF.
Aside from BP and ECG monitoring, the Galaxy Watch5 Series also has improved sleep tracking technology. Plan your bedtime, detect snoring, understand and track your sleep stages (awake, light, deep REM) via 8 animal sleep symbols representing your sleep type, and you’ll also receive nightly sleep reports so you can rest easy.
For fitness tracking, the Galaxy Watch5 Series counts your steps, calories, and even your routines. It even supports over 90 exercises that you can track from your watch. And if you’re a fitness enthusiast who needs a watch to keep up with you on your outdoor activities, consider the Watch5 Pro as it comes with GPS route tracking guides turn-by-turn directions for cyclists and hikers.
Longer & Stronger, Durable & Stylish
The Galaxy Watch5 series also delivers its most durable and powerful performance yet for the series. The Galaxy Watch5 comes with a 15% bigger battery for 20% faster charging – it only takes about 30 minutes to go from 0% up to 45% charge so you’re ready to go in no time! Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro comes with the biggest battery capacity among Samsung’s wearable series, lasting for 24 hours even with continuous GPS use and 80 hours on standby.
The Galaxy Watch5 series was also designed with durability in mind. Both are water resistant and crafted with premium Sapphire crystal to take those hard knocks. The Watch5 Pro even comes with a titanium body case – talk about tough!
And when it comes to style, the Galaxy Watch5 Series makes it easy to stay fit in style. The Galaxy Watch5 comes in fresh and trendy colors – the 40mm in Composite Gray, Iconic Gold and Silver, with straps in Gray, Pink Gold and Lavender, while the 44mm comes in Composite Gray, Navy Blue and Silver, with straps in Gray, New Blue and White. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro comes in Black Titanium and Gray Titanium – classics that go with any kind of outdoor ensemble.
