Re: Galaxy Watch Active Blood Pressure - My BP Lab - Any News?

You are being exceedingly generous to Samsung. They announced that BP measurement and tracking is available on the Galaxy Watch Active. Then they said they will work and help them in making that happen and for all of us to wait and watch out for any news on a feature that they touted on stage and broadcasted to millions. There is a clear lack of regular updates and transparency on the issue.

Re: Galaxy Watch Active Blood Pressure - My BP Lab - Any News?

Glad Samsung's typical false advertising hasn't costed me much. Last Samsung phone I had was the s6 and I plan on keeping it that way now. What a shame, they make some good hardware.

 

It is interesting that Samsung representatives are so active in other topics however ignore this one. One wonders if they are worried about liability. 

 

In my opinion it would be a good idea to go over Samsung's marketing material for this watch with a lawyer.

Re: Galaxy Watch Active Blood Pressure - My BP Lab - Any News?

Well, the way it was hyped and pre-sold (and to some extent continues to be sold) it should have worked on other phone than high-end Samsung equipment.  That little detail was conveniently omitted from the marketing ads and press releases generating media hype.

 

Mine went back.

Re: Galaxy Watch Active Blood Pressure - My BP Lab - Any News?

https://news.samsung.com/us/samsung-wearable-galaxy-watch-active-galaxy-fit-galaxy-buds-unpacked-201... Here Samsung markets Blood Pressure Monitoring with "Available in beta in 5 countries including: U.S., Canada, Singapore, Australia, and Germany." being the only stipulation. This is patently false as has been observed in this thread as well as by Samsung corporate and the partner for the my bp lab study. Archives are available if Samsung changes the press release.

Has there been any updates about this?  Has anyone had any success sideloading the app on a non-S9/S10/Note9 phone and getting the watch to take measurements?

Anyone wonder why Samsung never replied? I get the feeling they've already gone through arbitration with many many users for their false advertising and would like the fire to die.
