Samsung Galaxy Watch3, Watch Active2 in the US get ECG Monitoring App
Samsung has recently announced the arrival of electrocardiogram (ECG) readings on the US versions of the Galaxy Watch3 and Watch Active2.
According to Samsung, the ECG monitoring app has recently received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The app monitors the user’s heart rhythm for irregularities and scans for signs of Atrial Fibrillation.
Galaxy Watch3 and Watch Active2 users in the US may access the app through the Samsung Health Monitor app. Before recording an ECG, they should wear the watch, rest their arm on a flat surface, and place their fingertip on the top button of the watch. The ECG record can be classified as either Sinus Rhythm or AFib.
Through the ECG Monitoring app, users can record relevant symptoms like fatigue or dizziness and send a PDF report of their ECG recording to their healthcare provider using the Samsung Health Monitor app.
The latest ECG Monitoring app is just another addition to the plethora of health features present on the Galaxy Watch3. Among its other features include tracking of oxygen saturation, new digital running coach, post-workout VO2 max reporting, and advanced sleep tracking. The Galaxy Active2 also supports new tools found on its successors like the Running Analysis, VO2 max, and Fall Detection.
The ECG Monitoring app is now available in the US.
