I did an EKG with my watch. Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 updated

Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Watch 3 watches are equipped with components that allow blood pressure measurement and electrocardiography to be carried out, but their activation requires the consent of local market regulators. At the end of January, Samsung boasted that its watches have passed the EU certification process and will soon receive an update activating the long-awaited functions. The new version of the software has already appeared in Poland.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3: How to Make an EKG?

After updating the software, a new application lands on the watch Samsung Health Monitor. Just turn it on and follow the instructions on the screen.

The whole process is very simple. It is enough to rest your hand on a flat surface and place the index finger of the other hand on the top button of the watch. The point is that both hands and the smartwatch should be a closed circuit.

Heart rate monitoring takes 30 seconds; after this time, information on whether the heart is working properly is displayed on the watch and smartphone. The recorded graph can be saved in PDF format, for example to send to a doctor.

Samsung emphasizes at every step that the watch function cannot be treated as a full-fledged alternative to professional research.

It looks a bit worse in the case of pressure measurement

EKG is a completely autonomous function, but blood pressure measurement is not. When using it for the first time, you should measure it simultaneously using a watch and a traditional blood pressure monitor and enter the recorded result in the application.

The smartwatch can only estimate blood pressure by analyzing deviations from the recorded norm. For more accurate results, Samsung recommends that you repeat the calibration at least once a month.

I don’t have a traditional blood pressure monitor, so I couldn’t check this function.
