Blood Pressure Reliability & Accuracy

Anyone else disappointed with the reliability & accuracy of the blood pressure app on their Galaxy Watch 3?

Mine always gets to 98% then fails with a weak signal error! I have to have wear the watch tight to the point it hurts after a while or press it against my wrist with my other hand when taking a measurement. 😕

Having calibrated my watch using an Omron M7 Blood Pressure Monitor i'm getting the following results when comparing them both:

Watch result: 112sys / 79dia / 60bpm

Omron M7 result: 123sys / 86dia / 70bpm

I also don't like the fact that there is no way to read your last result on the watch, you have to use your phone to view a previous result.

Not good!

 


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.

  • Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

I recalibrated my watch and my results are better.

Watch result: 124sys / 88dia / 66bpm

Omron M7: 121sys / 86dia / 65bpm

I ran the watch test first and once complete the Omron M7.

I have done multiple measurements this afternoon after doing calibration against my home monitor...

the results have been pretty consistent and within one or two points of my proper BP kit. I am suitably impressed from my usage.

hello @WelshPaul,

mine Watch 3 after calibration measure quite precise and accurate. I am getting the difference of +-3 at maximum, and I would say it is because the watch is on the opposite arm to the blood pressure meter. so, I am very happy with this function. 

The ECG I have no problem there when taking the measure the watch should be worn a little tighter, but not so tight that it hurts. the ECG graph can be found inside the Samsung Health Monitor, you can also export it to a PDF file and share it. Also this feature is working great!

I have exactly the same problem. The blood pressure monitor does not work properly and that's one of the main reasons I brought it

me too, same problem, I have recalibrated many times, doing exactly as per instruction, waiting 5 minutes sit down, correct fixing on my arm  etc. etc.  and after all expecially the dyastolic has 10 points difference. 

I have bought gaxalxy wath 4 exclusive for blood pressure. I understand it's not a medical equipment but I would like to have something that arrive at least to similar M7 OMRON that I use for my monitoring.
