Next week, Samsung will unveil its latest line of innovative products designed to improve users’ daily activities, including updates that make fitness and wellness routines easier. Prior to the presentation, we would like to review our philosophy, our accomplishments and the progress we have made as we approach the final stage of our journey to health.
The world has entered a new era of wellness, where there is a growing desire to understand health in a different way. In the past, health was a simple concept with a single definition. Now everyone defines health and wellness by what it means to them. To meet everyone’s health goals, Samsung is committed to ensuring that all of its users have access to the resources they need, so they can strive to be the best version of themselves.
To that end, we are focused on setting new standards for health experiences across the Galaxy Watch series and across our product portfolio. We have established three key pillars to help people achieve their own goals: sensor innovation, connected well-being and industrial collaboration.
Advanced sensors for more meaningful insights
To create healthy habits and achieve goals, it is important that we get to know ourselves better. For our users, this journey begins with Samsung’s innovative BioActive sensor. The BioActive sensor provides accurate and comprehensive health data and provides actionable insights and guidance that users can take advantage of on their health and wellness journey.
First introduced with the Galaxy Watch4, the BioActive sensor uses a single unique chip that combines three powerful health sensors – optical heart rate (PPG), electrocardiogram (ECG) and muscle mass analysis (BIA) – into one. compact unit. . Its streamlined design improves performance and fits comfortably for greater accuracy and 24/7 use. This helps users deepen their understanding, encourage action, and develop good habits to help them achieve their goals.
Our sensor provides information on all aspects of health, but we would like to highlight two key areas: sleep and body composition. Sleep is a last-minute detail when establishing a solid wellness routine, but it’s essential for overall health. At Samsung, we’re committed to helping our community sleep better. We’ve introduced several sleep quality tracking tools and launched a tailored sleep training program, all with the aim of helping users get a more restful night’s sleep.
When it comes to fitness, in particular, everyone’s goals are different. That’s why the BioActive sensor also measures body composition, deepening users’ understanding of their physical health far beyond just weight loss. The sensor sends microcurrents to measure weight maintained, skeletal muscle gained, body fat loss, and body water levels, against set goals, helping users achieve goals and track what’s best for them.
With these advancements, we remain firmly committed to secure and private data collection to provide our users with peace of mind during their wellness journeys. All health data is encrypted and protected on the device itself and guarded by Knox, ensuring that user information remains isolated from unauthorized sources.
Well-being on all devices
We also provide tools that allow consumers to track their overall health and wellbeing, whether at home, at the gym, or on the go. The Samsung Health app, with over 200 million active users worldwide, is at the heart of the Samsung health experience across a wide range of devices, from smartwatches to smartphones, tablets and even TVs. The app, a global health center that consolidates fitness, wellness and health monitoring capabilities, records and collects all kinds of health data and activity information, presents it in intuitive way and provides guidance on how to leverage this data to maximize results. The information collected is complete, easy to understand and encourages positive action.
More connected devices means a smoother and better user experience. Mientras el usuario sigue programas de entrenamiento guiado o meditation en su casa través de Samsung Smart TV o Galaxy Tabs, por ejemplo, su recuento de calories y frecuencia heartíaca rastrean en sur Galaxy Watch, pero se ven en la pantalla más grande para facilitar access. Galaxy Watch also recognizes when you fall asleep and automatically dims the lights and turns off the air conditioning in response.
Open collaboration means better healthcare experiences
To provide our users with the best possible experience, we partner with other technology and wellness leaders. We’ve built a solid foundation with our technology and welcome collaboration in its open ecosystem, which often serves as an incubator for exciting new apps, services and features. Together with Google, we co-developed Wear OS and Health Connect so that more users can join the unified platform and enjoy new services and solutions to meet everyone’s needs.
Samsung is working closely with third-party experts, research centers and universities to advance wearable device tracking and analytics capabilities, including the National Sleep Foundation for Sleep, the University of California at San Diego and the University of California, San Francisco Hypoxia Research. for sleep and blood oxygen research and Louisiana State University, Pennington Biomedical Research Center and University of Hawaii Cancer Center for BIA research, among others. We are also committed to finding new ways to use our health solutions in the medical field. In the coming months, we are focused on developing more tools and resources that support the medical community and give our users a more holistic view of their health records.
The bright future of health and wellness
In recent years, many people around the world have adopted new habits and new interests. For many, this includes increased awareness of physical, mental and sleep health. To meet this demand, Samsung is excited to continue to expand its lineup of Galaxy Watches to better meet the many unique needs of our users, especially those who are passionate about the outdoors.
Our work, however, does not end there. We are constantly innovating and investing in research and development and exploring new ways of working with our trusted partners. Through open collaboration and focused innovation, we will ensure our users are equipped with cutting-edge technologies that allow them to better understand their own mind and body for a truly integrated and holistic health and wellness experience. .
We really want you to know what awaits you. For that, don’t miss the Galaxy Unpacked on August 10 at 3:00 p.m., in samsung.com.
