Samsung’s preparing to discuss new Health advancements at Unpacked


Last updated: August 3rd, 2022 at 14:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung is building hype around its next major unveiling event. And with just one week left until Unpacked 2022, the company decided to look back at some of its recent achievements and reflect upon its philosophy concerning Samsung Health. The Galaxy Watch 5 series is just around the corner, so, in a way, Samsung is reassuring its fans that it is fully committed to its Health platform.

Today, Samsung talked about the three pillars that make its Health platform what it is: sensor innovation, connected wellness, and industry collaboration.

Health sensor innovation

The Health platform is only as good as the hardware allows it to be. Samsung’s most advanced health sensor yet, the BioActive Sensor, was introduced with the Galaxy Watch 4. It combines three powerful health sensors into a single chip. It’s capable of taking PPG readings (Optical Heart Rate), ECG (Electrical Heart Signal), and BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis).

This groundbreaking sensor pushed the Galaxy Watch 4 to a new level as a health device. The smartwatch was recognized by health experts for the accuracy of its SPo2 sensor, which is comparable to a medical device.

Accessibility and open collaboration

Samsung’s Health platform is available on several devices and device types, from smartwatches to smartphones, tablets, and even smart TVs.

Through open collaboration, Samsung’s Health app gets smarter every day. And now, the Galaxy Watch can recognize when the user falls asleep and automatically dims lights and turns off air conditioners.

Open collaboration is key to IoT devices, and inter-connectivity is improving. Furthermore, Samsung is now working alongside more partners than ever. It helped Google develop Wear OS and Health Connect, and it is now working extensively with third-party experts and universities to advance wearable tracking and insight capabilities.

Samsung’s work isn’t stopping here. The company took the chance to remind us today that Unpacked is scheduled for August 10, and Health fans should tune in to see what’s coming next. Will Samsung announce a new sensor along with the Galaxy Watch 5 series? New Health capabilities and partners? Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
