Galaxy Watch’s Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification feature will arrive with One UI 5 Watch, starting from 13 countries

The Samsung Health Monitor app’s new Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification(IHRN) function will soon be accessible in 13 markets this summer. Along with the already-available Blood Pressure and Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring, the IHRN capability will provide Galaxy Watch customers with even more information about their cardiovascular health. As part of the new One UI 5 Watch, the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification function will initially debut on the next Galaxy Watch devices later this year.

According to Hon Pak, Vice President and Head of the Digital Health Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics, “Cardiovascular disease remains one of the main causes of death around the world, and we’re committed to empowering our users to stay informed about their heart health by providing monitoring tools, including blood pressure measurement and irregular heart rhythm notification. We’re constantly exploring new ways to help Galaxy Watch users obtain deeper insights on their health and wellness effortlessly, day and night.”

The IHRN function on Samsung devices received approval from both the American Food and Drug Administration(FDA) and the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) last week.

The function will also be introduced in Argentina, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Georgia, Panama, UAE, and also additionally in Korea, and the US, according to news from the reliable source, Devdiscourse. By continually monitoring for abnormal cardiac rhythms in the background and the warning of user probable atrial fibrillation(Afib) activity, the IHRN function goes beyond ECG tracking.

Users may learn more about their cardiovascular health by combining existing Blood Pressure and Heart rate monitoring. Samsung Bio Active, which incorporates features like ECG and HR Alert to give users insights about the heart rate pattern, is implemented in the Galaxy watches.
