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 groundbreaking 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.
