Galaxy Watch Active 2 wearers will now also be able to enjoy the blood pressure monitoring function.
However, just like with the ECG sensor, Samsung rolled out the feature only in South Korea for the moment.
Both the ECG sensors and the blood pressure monitoring needed a green light from South Korea’s drug safety agency, which is why the features weren’t available in the Galaxy Watch Active 2 so far.
For the blood pressure monitor, watch wearers will have to calibrate it with a traditional blood pressure monitor in order to ensure accuracy, a calibration that will have to be repeated every four weeks.
The results will be synced with the Samsung Health app, allowing you to track health data over various intervals and share it with their physician if needed.
According to SamMobile, the new feature will be pushed out with the latest watch update.
