Samsung Galaxy Watch ECG Feature Proves Life-Saving



The South Korean tech conglomerate Samsung has plenty of health-related features in its Galaxy Watch lineup, of which the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5’s features seem to be the most useful and beneficial ones. Recently, many testimonials have said that their Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5’s health features and sensors saved their lives. Out of all these features, the ECG functionality of Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the most effective one. 

Informatively, the Galaxy Watch’s health feature informs the user about his heart condition and other health-related things. Consequently, if they find anything problematic in the watch’s report, he/she can get checked before anything major happens. 

User’s experience with the Galaxy Watch’s health features

  • A Galaxy Watch 5 Pro user has recently shared that his watch’s ECG feature convinced him to get clinical tests which resulted that the user is having symptoms of pathological cardiac arrhythmia. It is a dangerous disease that causes severe or fatal consequences, also known as atrial fibrillation. The user is currently getting treatment to cure this health issue.
  • Another user, who is a Galaxy Watch 4 owner, said that he regularly checks his heart rate, and the result encourages him to get a health checkup. His checkup diagnosed a severe condition, ventricular tachycardia, which leads to serious illnesses like a heart attack. 

The Galaxy Watch’s ECG feature is surely a lifesaver, but it is currently limited to a few regions only. It would be helpful if the company expanded its availability in other markets as well.

    When your angry the Watch 4 tells You to calm down, take a break and breath 😅 the ECG is very useful. The features are not 100% exact but You can use them to go immediately to a Dr if You have some sort of a problem. When I had Covid-19 I knew I had it, the Galaxy Watch 46mm (Gen 1) show Me a high heartbeat rate.

    It would also be helpful if they wouldn’t limit the EKG to Samsung phones

Galaxy Watch 7 Could Powered By Exynos W1000 chip



Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 is in an actively developing phase and is expected to introduce a new naming system for Galaxy smartwatch processors. 

Initially, Samsung switched to WearOS with the Galaxy Watch 4, powered by the Exynos W920 chip. Since then, the giant has also changed the naming scheme for their smartwatch processors. The same chipset, ‘Exynos W920, carried over to the next Galaxy Watch 5 lineup. 

The current Galaxy Watch 6 is powered by an upgraded chipset named the Exynos W930, and it is expected that this will carry over to the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 series as well. Recent reports suggest that an Exynos chip, likely to be named W1000, will power the Galaxy Watch 7. Although this naming scheme could be suitable, the key point is that it would better convince consumers that the new chip is a major upgrade as compared to the previous chip. 

Although the model number for this new iteration is yet to come into existence, and usually the simple word is just not a part of the Korean giant, it will be interesting to see what turn this report will take in the future.. 

On the other hand, previous leaks already revealed the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 could offer three variants, including standard, classic, and pro, with hints at monster battery life and more. It is also supposed to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in early July 2024.

Île-de-France Mobilités & Samsung Expand Transport Tickets On Galaxy Watches




Île-de-France Mobilités is in the phase of modernizing transport tickets and is stepping up its efforts to dematerialize them. 

This includes new ticket options, pricing, effortless ways to buy tickets online or directly by phone, and updating station equipment to make using these new options smoother. Île-de-France Mobilités dematerialized ticketing solutions are used more and more every month and are now the majority in use. 

The aim behind this is just the dematerialization of ticketing and the generalization of this use, which has less environmental impact as compared to magnetic tickets. 

Regarding this president of Île-de-France Mobilités and the Île-de-France Region, Valérie Pécresse stated, “The generalization of this service, in partnership with Samsung, is in line with our dematerialization policy initiated in 2016: making the lives of Ile-de-France users simpler, more practical, and more in tune with our times. We will continue to invest and increase our efforts in this direction.” 

Back in November 2023, a few testers were able, during a developing phase, to use their Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 lineup as well as newer models to validate their transport tickets. The feedback was positive, highlighting simplicity, fluidity, and the speed of using the service. 

Although, since 2019, the Korean giant has been a partner of Île-de-France Mobilités to provide solutions for dematerializing transport tickets to all Ile-de-France residents on their smartphones. Now users can use their Galaxy smartphone for public transport in Île-de-France; this includes validating tickets on a terminal and buying or even reloading them with Samsung Pay. 

The two players are going further with this new deployment, which will permit you to buy tickets from a smartphone and validate them just with a flick of the wrist with a connected watch, even in the scenario where it is turned off. This step appears as a move forward to the modernization of Ile-de-France ticketing in a simple way, especially for scenarios when you get late.
