So another promised date from Samsung is here, one of many that have come and gone for the current and prior generation watches and other functions.

Anyone received the ECG/BP/Sleep Apnea updates?

In the background your BP monitor has almost exactly the same as your watch ?   149 / 84.   It looks pretty close to me.  

I have done the calibrations myself over three measurements, and then done a couple of measurements this afternoon and the results are spot on.   I have also done a couple of ECG tests... again the results look similar.    I am fairly conversant with my ECG plots as I have a heart condition and have had some 8-10 ECG measurements done by my cardiologist over the past year or so.  Below are a couple of my screenshots.  I am liking this new functionality, and it seems to work quite well in my first testing today...

screenshot from BP show within 1 or 2 points of one another through this afternoon. ECG results look 'feasible'

140/80 I'd call that off, the other reading where also out.

I can't quite see the top of the screen of your BP monitor... I figured it was 148... it was 140 ?

I say try a recalibrate over three measures. of course blood pressure does go up and down... but I don't need to tell you that if you own a BP monitor and a health watch.

I have a low BP problem due to my heart arrhythmia and beta blocker medication. my results have been very consistent.

personally I wouldn't think a few points difference is significant between readings, as I see my BP fluctuate by at least that amount just getting up and sitting back down again.

However you know your own health and fluctuations... perhaps a recal when you are nice and calm and doing nothing else to preoccupy at the time.

I'm in the UK, have a Watch 3, when I install the app to my Note 9, I get the message "not available in your current location" any ideas?

Just to clarify, you have installed the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone? Next step is to use the Watch Software Update in the app to make sure you have the latest firmware.

Sorry if I am teaching you to suck eggs.

If that hasn't worked, is your watch definitely a UK model? When you first turned on the watch, it asked you to select the country. Did you have the option to select United Kingdom?

I hope these points help.

Hi, 

 That's a good question, the watch was bought in the UK from Amazon just before Xmas 2020. I've just carried out a full reset and was offered UK Ireland and UK, selected UK and re-paired to my phone, went through the whole setup. I can see the BP/ECG widgets on my watch, I select ECG, select open app in phone and the Health Monitor app launches and the message appears "not available in your region" after selecting "Accept".. am starting to wonder if it is my Note 9 that is the problem. I'll check it's region but that was set up in the UK and works fine on the 3 network.

I think you are narrowing the issue down. The watch is clearly ready and good to go, but the phone can't complete the next step.

I don't have any Samsung phones to know why the phone isn't cooperating. Hopefully a Samsung phone owner with better knowledge than mine can help you with the next step

I checked the codes and XEU is UK 3 and EE, so not sure why the app won't launch on the phone
