The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 series are currently receiving a minor update that includes the Samsung Health Monitor App. This update brings the highly anticipated ECG and Blood Pressure measurement features to more countries, with India being one of them.

This update is the second patch for December 2023, coming in at roughly 12 MB, and introduces the Samsung Health Monitor app — a powerful addition to the Samsung Health app. As reported by Android Sage, with this update users can now enjoy the convenience of ECG and Blood Pressure measurement right at their fingertips.

Note though, that in certain countries, the ECG and Blood Pressure hardware found in the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 series devices is currently disabled due to various health-related regulations and approvals. Samsung has recently obtained approval in India and several other countries.

The Blood Pressure and/or ECG app is now accessible in countries where it has received the necessary regulatory clearance or approval, as listed by Samsung here. The list of countries where the ECG feature is available is as follows:
