Can Tech Really Help With Monitoring Your Blood Pressure?

Whether you’re awake or asleep, your heart is working all the time! (I hope). The heart is the hardest working muscle in the body. It beats more than 2.5 billion times during an average lifetime; that’s 100,000 times day.

Blood pressure, meanwhile, is a measure of the force that your heart uses to pump blood around your body. A healthy blood pressure range for adults is between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg.

Knowing these numbers can help make you more aware of your health and take the right steps to stay within the healthy blood pressure range.

The Measure

Oh Red means BAD. What is Hypertension?

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is when the pressure in your blood vessels is too high (140/90 mmHg or higher). It is common but can be serious if not treated. People with high blood pressure may not feel symptoms. The only way to know is to get your blood pressure checked.World Health Organization

At Age Should I Worry?

Hypertension can happen to anyone! and it all starts with a proper check. If you have the time, you should consult a doctor first-hand who would examine and monitor you.

What If I Don’t Have The Time?

It’s important to track your BP and ECG regularly to know your health situation, and so that you can make the lifestyle changes necessary to keep your heart healthy. Beyond going for regular check-ups through a medical professional, use the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro to check your BP and ECG readings daily at home or on the go!  

The Galaxy Watch5 | Galaxy Watch5 Pro are built with a PPG and ECG sensor to detect your systolic and diastolic pressure, pulse rate, and electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats. These readings can be stored in the Samsung Health Monitor Blood Pressure app[1] and Samsung Health Monitor ECG app[2], so that you can monitor your progress.

Besides, Samsung Health offers a bunch of other features that can make a positive impact on your BP and ECG – like Stress Monitoring, along with breathing exercises or mindfulness meditation to keep the pressure at bay. The app also offers workout programs so you get the exercise you need to get that heart pumping. Additionally, you can use the Galaxy Watch5 | Galaxy Watch5 Pro to track your sleep and get a personalised sleep coaching program. Follow the tips to improve your sleep quality, which will inadvertently improve your BP and ECG readings.

Well, are there any deals now?

Yes, and it’s even better if you can trade in your old Galaxy Watch. If you don’t have one, you can still enjoy up to RM 300 off a new Galaxy Watch5 series wearable, or even a pair of Galaxy Buds2 Pro if you’re more into that. I’d go for the Pro, and you should take my word on it :
