Samsung’s Galaxy Watch to Introduce Groundbreaking Sleep Apnea Detection Feature
Early Detection Aims to Improve Sleep Quality and Prevent Health Complications
Samsung is set to make a significant stride in health monitoring technology with the introduction of a sleep apnea detection feature in its Health Monitor app for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 6 series. The primary objective is to identify obstructive sleep apnea symptoms in their early stages, providing a vital opportunity for intervention.
The innovation hinges on the utilization of the “Galaxy Watch’s BioActive Sensor” to continuously monitor a person’s blood oxygen level during sleep. This monitoring is crucial for recognizing the severity of sleep apnea, a condition where individuals experience interruptions in their breathing while asleep, leading to a disruption in the body’s oxygen supply. Such interruptions not only result in lower sleep quality but can also lead to additional health complications, including but not limited to hypertension, cardiac disorders, and strokes.
