Gurugram, 3rd August 2022: Samsung Electronics will showcase new technologies and products during the Galaxy Unpacked on August 10, 2022. Ahead of the marquee event, Tae Jong Jay Yang, EVP & Head of Health R&D Team at Mobile Experience Business, Samsung Electronics, deliberates on the brand’s focus on holistic wellness and healthy habits and on setting new standards for health experiences through the upcoming Galaxy Watch series. He added, “For holistic wellness and healthy habits, it is important to understand themselves better. And it starts from Samsung’s ground breaking Bioactive sensor.”

Many people worldwide have adopted new habits and interests in the last few years. For many, these include greater physical, mental and sleep health awareness. To meet this demand, Samsung is excited to continue expanding the Galaxy Watch lineup to better cater to the many unique needs of its users — especially those with a passion for the outdoors. 

Samsung is focused on setting new standards for health experiences through the Galaxy Watch series and across the broader product portfolio. The brand has established three key pillars to help people reach their goals: sensor innovation, connected wellness and industry collaboration.

Advanced Sensors for More Meaningful Insights

To create healthier habits and reach goals, we must know ourselves better, and this journey starts with Samsung’s groundbreaking BioActive Sensor. The BioActive Sensor delivers accurate and comprehensive health data and provides actionable insights and guidance that users can leverage during their health and wellness journey.

First introduced with the Galaxy Watch4, the BioActive Sensor uses a unique single chip that combines three powerful health sensors — Optical Heart Rate (PPG), Electrical Heart Signal (ECG) and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) — into one compact unit. Its streamlined design enhances performance and fits comfortably for increased accuracy and 24/7 usage. This helps users deepen their understanding, encourages action and strengthens good habits to help them achieve their goals.

The BioActive Sensor also measures body composition, which deepens users’ knowledge of their physical health, far beyond merely losing weight. The sensor sends microcurrents to measure weight maintained, skeletal muscle gained, body fat loss and body water levels relative to the goals set, helping users hit targets and keep track of what matters to them.

Wellness That Spans All Devices

Samsung provides tools that allow consumers to track overall health and wellness — at home, in the gym, or on the road. The Samsung Health app, with more than 200 million active global users, is at the centre of Samsung’s health experience across an extensive range of devices, from smartwatches to smartphones to tablets and even TVs. The app is a holistic health hub that consolidates fitness, wellness and health data and presents them intuitively for the user to leverage and maximize results. The collected information is comprehensive, easy to understand and encourages positive action.

Open Collaboration Means Better Health Experiences

To give users the best experience possible, Samsung has partnered with other leaders in technology and wellness. We have built a strong foundation with our technology, and we welcome collaboration on our open ecosystem — one that often serves as an incubator for exciting new applications, services and features. In collaboration with Google, we co-developed Wear OS and Health Connect so that more users can join the unified platform and take advantage of new services and solutions to meet everyone’s needs.

Samsung is also working extensively with third-party experts, research centres and universities to further advance wearable tracking and insight capabilities, including the National Sleep Foundation for sleep, the University of California San Diego Sleep Laboratory and the University of California, San Francisco Hypoxia Research Laboratory for sleep and blood oxygen research and Louisiana State University, Pennington Biomedical Research Center and the University of Hawaii Cancer Center for BIA research, to name a few.
