Galaxy Watch 4 users in Canada get ECG and BP monitoring

In this case, Galaxy Watch 4 owners in Canada haven’t had the ability to use the smartwatch’s ECG and blood pressure monitoring tools, that is, until now. . Users in Canada are finally reporting full ECG and BP capabilities on their devices.

Like most modern smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 4 is packed with essential health and wellness-focused features.

Because of this, the ECG monitor and blood pressure capabilities were nearly useless since the release of the Galaxy Watch 4.

According to a report by Sammobilea recent firmware update (R8xxXXU1FVC8) recently rolled out to users in Canada has unlocked ECG and BP monitoring. This update allows those using a Samsung Galaxy device running at least Android 7.0 to use the Samsung Health Monitor app to track these vital signs.

If you want to enable these features, it’s quite simple to do. Go to your Samsung Health Monitor app on your watch and follow the steps to set it up. After updating to the latest firmware, you may even be prompted to download the app and configure it. As long as your Galaxy Watch 4 is paired with a Galaxy phone, you should be perfectly able to run ECG and BP tests.
