How do the Samsung smartwatches monitor blood pressure?

The smartwatches measure blood pressure through pulse wave analysis. This is tracked with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors. The ECG feature, however, analyses the heart's electrical activity through a sensor.

In order to have the Samsung Health Monitor app, it must be installed on both the phone and smartwatch. When the firmware of the Galaxy Wearable app is updated, the features are automatically installed on the smartwatch.

The company says that the Samsung Health Monitor app will be coming out to users in these 31 new markets starting February 4.
