From today, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 users in South Korea can measure and track their blood pressure via the Samsung Health Monitor App. The company received the clearance by South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) earlier this year.
“The launch of the Samsung Health Monitor app demonstrates Samsung’s dedication to providing accessible and convenient healthcare for all by integrating advanced hardware and best-in-class software technology,” said TaeJong Jay Yang, Corporate SVP and Head of Health Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We’re delighted that Galaxy Watch Active2 users in Korea can now access the new app and receive insights to help them manage their health. We look forward to expanding the app to all future Galaxy Watch products.”

To measure blood pressure, you must have the Samsung Health Monitor app installed on both the Galaxy Watch Active 2 and the Galaxy smartphone. The Samsung Health Monitor app is automatically installed on the Galaxy Watch Active 2 by updating the Watch Software to the latest version via the Galaxy Wearable app. The smartwatch app will then open a link, which will direct users to the smartphone app download page in the Galaxy Store app.
In addition, Electrocardiogram (ECG) tracking will also be supported on the Samsung Health Monitor app in South Korea in Q3 this year.
