Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 and newer smartwatches have built-in ECG electrocardiograms, but the company has not activated this feature in most markets around the world. The same goes for its latest smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro. Samsung has now announced that it has activated ECG and blood pressure monitoring features for these models in the Malaysian market.
Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro users in Malaysia can now use the Samsung Health Monitor app on their smartphones to check their EKG and blood pressure. This can help users diagnose heart-related problems early, and then consult a doctor for possible rescue measures. This feature is only available on the 5 series when the smartwatch is paired with a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
To measure blood pressure, Galaxy Watch 5 series users must set up the Samsung Health Monitor app on their Galaxy smartphone, make sure the watch fits snugly on the wrist, calibrate the watch with a dedicated blood pressure measurement device, and then complete the operation.
Measuring an ECG is simpler. Simply pair your Galaxy Watch 5 series smartwatch with your Galaxy smartphone, open the Samsung Health Monitor app on the smartwatch, and place your finger of the other hand on the top button of the smartwatch for 30 seconds to start taking an ECG.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series China has previously used some methods to enable the ECG function, but it has not yet been officially launched.
