Unlocking new possibilities for preventative wellness with the new Galaxy Watch and BioActive sensor






Date


(MENAFN- Asdaa BCW) Samsung has been driving digital health innovation to help simplify health and wellness by combining insights and metrics to deliver a more impactful and optimized wellness experience. This approach starts by improving access to simple and accurate health tracking through Samsung’s BioActive sensor, giving you more comprehensive, personalized and precise health data.
To continue this mission, Samsung is once again raising the bar with the latest version of its BioActive sensor. Coming to the next Galaxy Watch, the new sensor will enable advanced predictive and preventative wellness features never before seen in a wearable, as well as more accurate health measurements.
Introducing Samsung’s new BioActive sensor
The new BioActive sensor is essential to bringing you better preventative health experiences on the next Galaxy Watch, with design improvements that enable even more accurate health insights. Samsung engineers focused on three improvements for the new sensor: enhancing the performance of the light-receiving photodiodes, adding additional colors to the light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and optimally arranging them across the sensor.
Samsung has more than doubled the performance of each photodiode, successfully reducing the number needed to maintain capacity from eight to four. This redesign freed up additional space for the integration of a greater number and variety of LEDs and ensured their optimal placement on the sensor. The new sensor now includes blue, yellow, violet, and ultraviolet LEDs, in addition to a greater number of green, red, and infrared LEDs. By integrating and arranging these LEDs, photodiodes, and specially designed photodiodes, Samsung is taking innovation one step further and can now explore unexplored aspects of health monitoring in wearable devices.
Greater precision and new possibilities for preventive wellness
The optimal distribution of green, red and infrared LEDs sets new standards in wearable technology, improving accuracy and enabling exceptional performance across a wide range of health parameters. This allows the new BioActive sensor to more accurately measure health parameters such as heart rate, sleep quality, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels and stress levels. Even heart rate measurement during intensive workouts is 30% more accurate compared to its predecessor.
More diverse LED colors and newly designed photodiodes open up new possibilities and allow you to better predict trends and take proactive steps for preventative care. The first of these features will be an Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE) Index, an indicator of metabolic health and biological aging strongly influenced by overall lifestyle and dietary habits. Used as a telltale biomarker, this index provides a snapshot of your biological age to help you make more informed decisions about your wellness path and work toward a healthier future. The addition of an AGE Index is just one of many new advanced features planned for the next Galaxy Watch.
The next Galaxy Watch will bring more sophisticated and intelligent health and wellness tools to help you achieve your goals. We can’t wait to show you more!
