Recently, Samsung included a skin temperature-based sensor to the Galaxy Watch 5 series’ menstrual health tracker for women.
According to reports, the tech giant is currently working on incorporating more skin-temperature-based health-tracking capabilities. However, there are currently no additional details available regarding the update. The menstrual cycle monitoring function, meanwhile, is already available in 32 nations, including those in Europe, the US, and Korea. To provide reliable information on menstrual cycles, it makes use of an infrared temperature sensor.
The Samsung community forum for Korea has received an announcement from a Samsung official in charge of the Samsung Health Service that the business will expand the use of the skin temperature sensor to further health-tracking functions.
According to the release, a future software update for the gadget will include the new temperature-based functionality. He hasn’t provided any other information, though, about the release date or the addition of the health tracking tools.
For the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, the skin temperature-based menstrual tracking sensor has already been released by Samsung. The function tracks variations in body temperature and provides a precise reading of the menstrual cycle using infrared technology. It can be reached through the Samsung Health app.
As previously reported, the functionality is presently being rolled out in 32 nations, including Korea, the US, and 30 European nations. However, there is currently no information on whether this feature is accessible in India. It’s interesting to note that, according to Samsung, the sensor’s data is encrypted and kept on the user’s smartphone.
In August 2022, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series debuted. Both the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are included. When it was first introduced, the Galaxy Watch 5 included a heart rate, SpO2, and stress level tracker in addition to ECG and blood pressure monitoring features.
