Agreed!  Samsung should be refundng all who made a purchase based on this feature that is for the moment non existant.  When all of their company reps tell you that it will be avial bu the end of 2019 or the latest begin of 2020 it should be there.

Truly, I understand your health issue; yes serious. Being as you are have a two hours drive, and we do not know when nor if Samsung will actually be approved for their ECG/EKG, then in your situation I would not wait for Samsung. Especially that they are refusing refunds; a sad game they are playing.

 

Please, do not shoot the messenger: My priority is my health, as much as it will gaul me I would pruchase a Apple Watch, then when Samsung does provide EKG/ECG fully supported on their watch switch back. Your health your life is extremely important, it is not worth waiting.

How about if we bought direct from Samsung?

Bought this watch instead of an Apple Watch for my work phone. I hope It does come out soon. I love the watch anyway. I wish the battery lasted longer though. 

Looking forward to the ECG working

How long is your battery lasting?  I have mine on continous heart beat reading and still get over 2 days, which I think is acceptable.  I have LTE and WIFI at auto on/off.

 

Maybe I turned off something you have on, though.

I agree, the watch has nothing to do with the carriers. Unless you have the LTE version. The update should come from Samsung.

If apple can do it.  I'm sure Samsung can make it happen.  The question is how long are we waiting after release.  This will be a great way to measure how the two companies manage relationships with customers.

I read an article that stated the most specific date I've come across this far (and lemme tell you,I've been looking everywhere!). Anyhow,although it's not down to the day,the article did state February of 2020 for the ECG and arrhythmias function, a bit later for the fall detection. 

Probably didnt help you a whole bunch but I know I was pretty psyched to at least see a month assigned to the update! Lol

Wasn't that article from June or July 2019?  Seems like would have some sort of update on the expectation.
