I bought this watch expecting these features to work pretty quickly, I would of purchased another brand if I knew what I know now.

Good luck... In France we have no BP, no ECG and no SPO2.

Samsung never communicate. Totally ***** customer support honestly.

Many watches even at a very low price offer spo2/vo2max. Xiaomi will release one in the next few months at 1/3rd of the price of GW3.

 

For any other brand, it takes 4-5 months to get an approval for this kind of feature.

But for samsung things seem to be different, Galaxy Active2  has been waiting forever.

Check youtube, it's really simple to sideload ecg & bp straight from an android phone. No rooting & literally takes 2 minutes. I'm in UK & now have full functionality.

well that's a bitter pill to Swallow i only bought this because i have heart problems and wanted to have a constant monitor on my wrist.... seriously considering sending it back...

update sent it back after support failing to get these working and not being able to provide a concrete date of activation in the UK.

decided it was better to wait until these were working features and stick with my Watch Active as they might well be releasing a newer model by the time this works

I bought the watch knowing it was capable and would be enabled after regulatory approval. The sensors are more advanced than the cheapo watches you can get and u understand Samsung's point of a careful approach. let's hope it will pass the regs soon. Don't regret my purchase all the same as its a very nice watch.

I definitely would have kept my Samsung Galaxy Watch. After all, it has best buttons.
