Hello,

I am happy to announce that ECG and Blood pressure monitor are finally officially available in 31 countries, including EU states and the UK. You will need to download just one app, Samsung Health Monitor, and the app will be available in Samsung Galaxy Store starting on Feb 4.

Stay tuned!

Certainly  seems good news, word that that Galaxy watch 4 may feature  an optical sensor for Diabetes monitoring.  Of course remains to be seen just how accurate this woud be compared to traditional methods but should nonetheless be a useful tool. https://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-news-samsung-tentatively-considers-blood-glucose-monitoring-dia...  Of course we need to stress the importance of medical advice.

Anyway a bit more on the technology here :  https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-researchers-non-invasive-blood-glucose-monitoring-method-fea...

Hello @Greeneyedgal , it is possible that the country also need to approve the app. That is why, it can be available a little bit later. For example, I am from Slovakia and officials said that these features will be available during March.  But the think I know, there is going to be a sw update that will automatically install the app to your watch. So, you do not need to worry :winking-face:

I do not think the app, but software updates. Go to Galaxy Wearable app > scroll down to software updates > click on it > click on Dowload and install/check for new updates
