Manage your health and well-being with advanced technologies from Samsung

Over the years, Samsung has developed a suite of hardware and software to help users gain better control of their lifestyles, by making it easy to maintain and monitor daily routines, or even kickstarting an all-new fitness routine.

Samsung Health, which is available as an app for selected Galaxy devices, provides users a simpler way to take charge of their overall wellbeing and maintain peak conditions. Users can set goals and track their daily progress on activity level, workout intensity, sleep quality, as well as calorie and water intake. The app also provides access to a full-service fitness studio featuring a library of more than 120 different workout videos so that it is easy to remain active even at home. Users can also have a peace of mind when it comes to security with all health data safely secured by Samsung Knox.

For those seeking to cultivate better health and well-being habits, the latest Samsung smartwatches, including Galaxy Watch3, combine smartphone-level productivity and cutting-edge technology in a premium, timeless device. Besides advanced running analytics, blood oxygen monitoring (SpO2)[1], and enhanced Together feature whereby users can challenge their fellow fitness buddies, the Galaxy Watch3 also features blood pressure (BP) monitoring[2], electrocardiogram (ECG) readings[3], as well as a new feature that detects falls and can send an SOS notification to your chosen contacts[4].

[1] This device or software is intended for use only for general wellbeing purposes or to encouraging or maintain a healthy lifestyle, and is not intended to be used for any medical purpose (such as the detection, diagnosis, monitoring, management or treatment of any medical condition or disease). Any health-related information provided by this device or software should not be treated as medical advice. Please consult a physician for any medical advice required. Feature not supported in Japan, Angola, South Africa, Thailand, Iran, Libya, France, Algeria, and Brazil. Availability may vary by country or region. SpO2 is defined as saturation of percutaneous oxygen. Normal levels in humans are measured at approximately 95-100%. Factors like vigorous exercise, the amount of oxygen in the air, your elevation, and various health conditions can all result in lower readings.

[2] To ensure accuracy, users should calibrate their device every four weeks with a traditional blood pressure cuff.

[3] Blood Pressure (BP) and Electrocardiogram (ECG) readings are not available in Singapore at the moment. Updates to be released in the future. Detailed disclaimers apply in respect of the features.

[4] Galaxy Watch3 can initiate Emergency call and message if you take a hard fall and do not seem to move. Galaxy Watch3 cannot detect all falls. The more physically active you are, the more likely you are to trigger Fall Detection due to high impact activity that can appear to be a fall. Sending SOS calls and messages requires network connection and smartphone pairing.
