Samsung Galaxy Watch Gains FDA Approval for Sleep Apnea Detection in the USA

Samsung Galaxy watches have a lot of potential, and gradually Samsung is unlocking them. Earlier,  the company got approval for ECG and blood pressure monitoring in some countries, including India, and now it has got one more approval for detecting sleep apnea from the FDA.

For your information, sleep apnea is a disease where the patient gets less oxygen supply during sleep, so to make proper supply, their brain obstructs the sleep and makes them wake up many times. Due to this, the patient didn’t get proper sleep and had a lot of issues, including daytime fatigue.

When the disease goes untreated, it causes a lot more complications, which leads to more serious problems, including cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, and stroke.

Samsung has now taken the step to make this disease detectable early so consumers can start treatment in the initial stages. But this feature was under the approval stage for a long time, but now it has received approval for normal usage.

Don’t confuse this feature with the sleep coach, because that feature is only available for monitoring the sleep cycle, but now with the dedicated sleep apnea feature, the Galaxy watches will analyze the sleep of the user in two nights, which is detectable for users over 22 years of age.

According to the information, Samsung will provide this feature on the Galaxy Watch series in the US via the Samsung Health Monitors app in the second half of the year, while the availability of the feature may vary by market, carrier, smartwatch, or smartphone model.
