So it's been a while since Samsung announced their watches are getting the blood pressure feature however we still do not have that option in the US.

 
The Galaxy Watch 4 was announced yesterday and it is supposed to have the blood pressure feature but not the the US. I don't understand why Samsung would say the feature is ready but in reality it is not. Many people bought the watch with anticipation of the blood pressure feature and they are now getting frustrated
 
@Samsung what is up here???

Blame the FDA. Samsung can't break the law and legally release the feature until they quit dragging their behind and say it's approved.

Such a lie. Who cares about FDA. I bought those watches from Samsung not FDA. It was Samsung not FDA that made promises about BP.

In the USA, the blood pressure feature is legally considered an electronic medical device.
Until the FDA clears it, Samsung is enjoined from turning on that particular feature.
