Samsung is sharing its new health monitoring feature to 31 new countries that include 28 European counties and 3 other countries that already use Samsung Galaxy watch 2 with electrocardiogram (EKG) and blood pressure readings. Samsung says that the app received a CE marking in December that means it follows the regulations in Europe and can be offered in European economic area.

It is necessary to have a Samsung Health app installed on the Galaxy smartphone and on the Galaxy watch 3 or Galaxy Active 2 to be able to take an EKG or blood pressure measurement. According to Samsung, the app update that allows the features will be in action from February 4, 2021 though the company says that the availability might vary depending upon the market and the carrier.

The countries that will have the new updates and the availability of the new watch are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. It will also be available in Chile, United Arab Emirates, and Indonesia.  

Some features that are already present on smart devices might not be available for all countries and regions. For instance, the NFC feature, which is widely used in many countries, however not used in some. Thus, so this and other such features are also limited to a few regions.

Back in 2018, Apple introduced the EKG feature with the Apple Watch Series 4. Though Apple Watches have not really been successful in tracking one’s blood pressure, it will try to introduce more reliable features in the future.
