Last year, Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 and now reveals that the electrocardiogram (ECG) function of the Samsung Health Monitor app will also be available on the model.
The announcement comes after authorization from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of South Korea, with the application expected to be integrated from the third quarter of this year. However, the launch may vary from market to market.
The ECG functionality, already available on the Apple Watch, analyzes the electrical activity of the heart through an ECG sensor available on the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
If you open the Samsung Health Monitor app, place your forearm on a flat surface and place the fingertip of the opposite hand on the top button of the smartwatch for 30 seconds to access the results. The application will measure the heart rate rhythm, being classified as normal or irregular.
