Comprising state-of-the-art health and wellness features that ensure the product serves as a perfect lifestyle partner, the Galaxy Watch3 LTE is a must-have for health and fitness enthusiasts and those seeking to be more productive personally and professionally. In addition to faster speeds, lower latency, and greater efficiency, Galaxy Watch3 LTE users can utilize blood pressure and electrocardiogram tracking benefits via the Samsung Health Monitor app, meaning they can stay informed about their health wherever they go, and whenever they wish.

Blood Pressure Measurement 

High blood pressure is commonly linked to brain, kidney and heart diseases, and if left untreated, it can lead to stroke and coronary heart disease. Galaxy smartwatches are able to measure blood pressure via the Samsung Health Monitor app, which provides users with deeper insight into health and allows them to make more informed decisions about their wellness.

Once your Galaxy Watch3 LTE has been calibrated with a traditional cuff, you can simply tap to “Measure” your blood pressure anytime, anywhere. The device measures blood pressure through pulse wave analysis, which is tracked with the Heart Rate Monitoring sensors. The program then analyzes the relationship between the calibration value and the blood pressure change to determine the blood pressure. 

Electrocardiogram Monitoring 

It is estimated that around 33.5 million people worldwide are affected by Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), a common form of abnormal heart rhythm. AFib is often the cause of heart complications, including blood clots, failure and stroke. 

The electrocardiogram function works by analyzing the heart’s electrical activity via a sensor on the Galaxy Watch3 LTE. Simply open the Samsung Health Monitor app when you are seated comfortably, and ensure the watch is fitted firmly to your wrist. Next, rest your forearm on a flat surface and lightly place a fingertip from the opposite hand on the top button on the smartwatch for 30 seconds. The app will then measure your heart rate and rhythm, which will be classified as either a Sinus Rhythm (a normal, regular heartbeat) or AFib (when the heart beats irregularly).

The perfect fitness companion

Beginning a fitness routine can be difficult, but Samsung’s running form tool is here to help. Running analysis will be able to offers real-time feedback during your runs, as well as six-factor post-workout reports, which help improve form, boost performance, and reduce injury. To track your cardio progress as you go, you will soon be able to easily access VO2 max readings, which offer insight into your oxygen uptake. 

Even when you’re at home, you have access to a full-service fitness studio with Samsung Health, which features a library of more than 120 different video workouts. Simply select a workout routine on your Galaxy smartphone, cast it onto your Samsung Smart TV, and your Galaxy Watch3 will take care of the rest and automatically track the workout. Because recovery is just as important as the exercise, Samsung has been developing its sleep management offering since it was first introduced back in 2014. Now, Galaxy Watch3 offers brand new sleep score and insights to help you get better rest.

Comfort and craftsmanship brought together

The Galaxy Watch3 boasts all the craftsmanship of a luxury timepiece, while being comfortable enough to wear all day. Sporting a timeless design, this watch is built with premium materials like stainless steel and high-quality leather and is also available in a titanium model this is both durable and elegant. Galaxy Watch3 also features the popular rotating bezel from previous watch models, which merges form with function. With just a turn of the bezel, you can easily toggle between widgets, open apps and scroll through notifications. 

New meaning to personal style 

The device is also 14 percent thinner, 8 percent smaller and 15 percent lighter — combined with a larger display. You can also customize your watch face to perfectly reflect your personal style. You can choose from over 80,000 watch faces in the Galaxy Store, or design your own. A library of 40 different complications allows you to personalize your watch face with the information that’s most important to you.


To take blood pressure and electrocardiogram measurements, users must have the Samsung Health Monitor app installed on the Galaxy Watch3 LTE and their Galaxy smartphone. The Samsung Health Monitor app is automatically installed when users update their Galaxy smartwatch to the latest version via the Galaxy Wearable app. The smartwatch app will then open a link, which will direct users to the smartphone app download page in the Galaxy Store app.
