THE Galaxy Watch Active2, last Samsung smartwatch, finally received the ECG certification (electrocardiogram) of the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of South Korea. The company confirmed the release for use of the resource in a publication on its official blog. According to Samsung, the Galaxy Watch Active2 is finally certified for ECG in its country of origin and will begin send updates to your South Korean customers soon, in the third quarter of 2020.
Intel has not yet officially announced this line of CPUs
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 has the necessary hardware and system to take electrocardiogram readings on the user as well as the Apple Watch, from competitor Apple. Although the manufacturer has incorporated this feature into the wearable, some additional authorization or approval from government agencies is required for it to work.
This authorization depends a lot on the responsible bodies of each country, which is why the ECG update on Galaxy Watch Active2 should arrive only in South Korea, for now. The Apple smartwatch with this function, for example, also went through this process in several regions of the world and it took a long time before it released the feature in most markets.
The ECG feature is still undergoing approvals in the United States and in European and other Asian countries. Because of this, it is not possible to predict when the technology will be released to more users. Some experts even speculate that due to the new coronavirus pandemic, some bureaucracies related to the mobile industry may end up being delayed.
