I just got the Galaxy watch 6 and the Samsung Health monitor is just for ECG. I tried everything and cannot have that feature 😕

Blood pressure monitoring has yet to receive FDA approval for any Galaxy Watch, therefore this feature is not available in the U.S. Some other countries do have this option, however.

Not really, but you could try calling the FDA to see if they have a timetable, or what the hold-up is. They would be the ones to know.

They must be, yes. Many countries in Europe have governmental clearance for this feature.

It all depends on the government.

There are YouTube videos on how to enable "developer mode" on your watch and side-load the version of Samsung Health that has the blood pressure monitor. I did it on my Galaxy Watch 4.
