Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 get ECG readings

FDA-Cleared Electrocardiogram Monitoring App is Available Starting Today

Electrocardiogram (ECG) readings came to Galaxy Watch3 and Galaxy Watch Active2 in the US today, as Samsung’s Electrocardiogram Monitoring App recently gained U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Clearance.

ECG readings will be be available through the Samsung Health Monitor app when connected to a compatible Galaxy smartphone. The new ECG Monitor app allows users to monitor their heart rhythm for irregularities, scanning for signs of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib).

To use the ECG Monitor app, simply take a seat, open up the new Samsung Health Monitor app, and ensure your watch is snug your wrist. Rest your arm on a flat surface, place your fingertip on the top button, and your watch will record an ECG and classify it as either Sinus Rhythm, or AFib.

Once the reading is complete, users can record relevant symptoms like fatigue or dizziness, and send a PDF report of their ECG recording with their healthcare provider using the Samsung Health Monitor app on a compatible Galaxy smartphone.

In addition to ECG monitoring, you can also conveniently track oxygen saturation on Galaxy Watch3. This feature can help users get a sense of how well their respiratory system is transferring oxygen into the bloodstream for fitness or other general wellness purposes.

Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner, or just looking to get back into shape, this device also features tools for taking your training to the next level. A new digital running coach offers real-time feedback on pace and form, as well as detailed post-workout reports to improve performance and reduce injury.

Post-workout VO2 max reports also allow users to effortlessly track their cardio fitness progress, measuring the amount of oxygen your body can utilise when running outside.

To help improve your sleep so you can recover better, Galaxy Watch3 also comes with advanced sleep tracking features, which measure breathing, vitals, and REM cycles throughout the night, then use an algorithm to score your rest for the evening. Each morning, users can view a detailed report and receive tips on how to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.

Galaxy Watch3 merges timeless design with a cutting-edge suite of wellness features—and for users seeking a more modern, minimalist look, Galaxy Watch Active2 now also supports new tools like Running Analysis, VO2 Max, and Trip Detection.

Together, these two devices ensure that no matter your style preference, you can find a powerful companion for managing your routines, smashing your fitness goals, and taking ownership over your health with a smartwatch that meets your needs.
