Samsung is boosting its mHealth features across its lineup with the watch, fitness bands, and wireless ear buds.
With smartwatch features comprising “the full smartwatch experience,” the Galaxy Watch Active auto-detects when the wearer begins certain common workouts like running or biking, and can manually track dozens of others with daily goals and progress monitoring. And, in addition to the heart rate and stress tracking, the smart watch will be updated on March 15 in five countries with a blood pressure monitoring feature thanks to a research app developed jointly with the University of California, San Francisco, according to a release from the company.
