Published

on


Samsung introduced the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy watch 5 Pro smartwatches in August 2022. But due to some reasons, only some features are locked in some countries, but after realizing the importance, the company has announced to enable these features, including Blood Pressure and ECG features, for Galaxy Watch 5 users in Malaysia.

Finally, Samsung unveiled a new feature on its Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro in Malaysia. This feature allows you to measure and track your blood pressure and heart rate and get an electrocardiogram (ECG) reading. This is a great way to keep track of your health and fitness and to make sure that you’re staying within a healthy range.

A new zoom feature added to Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5’s Camera Controller app

According to the information, the company said that the features have already started expanding in the watches from January 25 for Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Let’s discuss the features in detail.

Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch5 Pro ECG Monitor Feature

This feature is dedicated to testing your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity to detect irregular rhythms. Sensors are attached to the skin to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats and information is recorded on a graph, the same thing you can do with your Galaxy watch 5.

Here’s how you can use this feature 

  1. Pair your Galaxy Watch with the Galaxy smartphone.
  2. Wear the Galaxy Watch snugly on your wrist.
  3. Open the Samsung Health Monitor app on your Galaxy Watch.
  4. To take an ECG reading, rest your fingertip of the opposite hand lightly on the Galaxy Watch’s top button for 30 seconds.
  5. The ECG data is synced to the paired Galaxy smartphone, where a PDF report is created.

Blood Pressure Monitor for Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro

Galaxy Watch 5 series features the same monitor as you have experienced in traditional BP monitors. A blood pressure test measures the pressure in the arteries as the heart pumps and is done as a part of a routine health checkup or as a screening for hypertension, so it’s important to track your blood pressure readings regularly to take proactive steps and lifestyle modification to improve your blood pressure.

To use this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Set up Samsung Health Monitor on your Galaxy Watch and Galaxy smartphone.
  2. Calibrate your Galaxy Watch based on the instructions on the Samsung Health Monitor app.
  3. Wear your Galaxy Watch on the same wrist* as during the calibration and make sure the strap is snug, then measure your blood pressure.
  4. Review your blood pressure measurements.

Galaxy Watch Ultra

Samsung is quite close to launching the Galaxy Watch Ultra at the Galaxy Unpacked event next month. It’s the first Ultra-branded smartwatch from Samsung, so predicting the price is quite interesting. Now the new leak is revealing the price of the watch. 

Samsung is all set to hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris on July 10th to introduce a bunch of Galaxy products, including the Galaxy Watch Ultra. The new report reported that this watch would be priced at nearly $700 in the US, which would make it considerably more expensive than the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. 

However, here is a fact: If you were hoping that rumors would turn out to be wrong, you will be disappointed since the European prices are saying something else. The Galaxy Watch Ultra and Galaxy Buds 3 have leaked online, and they reveal that the Galaxy Watch Ultra will be priced just as expensive in Europe. 

Even before any official statement regarding the upcoming wearables, they have been spotted on various retail websites. It is also reported that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra could be priced nearly between €689 and €699; however, this appears close to what the Apple Watch Ultra retailed for when it launched in 2022. Jumping on the Galaxy Watch 7, which is listed as the 40mm Bluetooth variant with a €319 price tag whereas €349 for the 44mm Bluetooth variant. The upcoming Galaxy Buds 3 are also listed for €229, and the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro is listed for €319. 

For now, these prices are based on listings, but soon, within a month, the accurate prices for all of these products will go official.

The Korean firm ‘Samsung’ is looking forward to expanding its wearable smartwatch family by introducing a brand new watch named Galaxy Watch Ultra. This watch listed on the Samsung support website showcases the details. Let’s take a closer look at the listing. 

The listing on the Samsung support website confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra is officially coming to compete with the Apple Watch Ultra. This means that the watch will face tough competition in the market. According to a recent report, the Galaxy Watch Ultra was spotted on the Samsung support website in Canada. 

The official support page for the Galaxy Watch Ultra is no longer available online. However, it was confirmed that the Galaxy Watch Ultra will have LTE support and a 47mm size. It’s expected that this time the Korean giant could only offer the Galaxy Watch Ultra in one size. The watch was listed with the model number SM-L705F. The product is likely to come in two colors: white and dark gray, with an orange side key. 

Previously, it was also reported that the Galaxy Watch Ultra might cost 700 euros, which is approximately $750. It seems like a quiet price tag for the smartwatch. Although, as compared to the current Galaxy Watch 6 and upcoming Galaxy Watch 7, it’s more than double the price. The brand will power the upcoming Galaxy Watch trio with a new 3 nm Exynos processor. 

It is also reported that Samsung could offer a 20% increase in power efficiency and enhanced performance. Besides, the Galaxy Watch 7 series and Watch Ultra will arrive pre-installed with Wear OS 5-based One UI 6 Watch out of the box.
