Your Samsung Watch can Soon Warn You of Irregular Heart Rhythms


There’s no doubt that Samsung’s galaxy Watch 5 series is the company’s most feature-packed wearable to date, providing users with handy features for fitness and health-tracking. With that in mind, Samsung has recently announced a new feature in the form of Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN), which will arrive for supported devices soon.

Once enabled, IHRN will work in tandem with the Samsung Health Monitor App’s ECG function, and will be able to proactively monitor and warn users should their heart rhythms show signs of atrial fibrillation. This is particularly useful in cases where AFib cases might not show immediate symptoms or warning signs.

According to Hon Pak, Vice President and Head of the Digital Health Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics:

“This is yet another example of how Samsung prioritizes proactive safety solutions and enables users to receive a more holistic understanding of their cardiovascular and overall health.”

The feature will need to be activated in the Samsung Health Monitor app, and will check for irregular heart rhythms using the watch’s BioActive Sensor. If a certain number of consecutive measurements are irregular, the device will send the user a notification of potential AFib activity.

The IHRN will be available when One UI 5 Watch drops for compatible Samsung devices, and will later roll-out to previous models.
