SEOUL, May 23 (Korea Bizwire) —Samsung Electronics announced on Tuesday its commitment to further enrich the health management capabilities of its Galaxy Watch series, pinpointing sleep functionality as a key cornerstone of its future strategy in the health sector.
During a media briefing held at the company’s headquarters in Jung-gu, Seoul, Samsung unveiled its strategic vision for “Samsung Health,” the company’s widely embraced global health solution, which presently serves a staggering 64 million individuals worldwide on a monthly basis.
Hon Pak, the Head of Digital Health in the Mobile Experience (MX) Division, remarked, “Since its inception in 2012, Samsung Health has continuously evolved to empower users with comprehensive insights and tools to better comprehend and proactively manage their well-being alongside our Galaxy Watch.”
Samsung’s observations have revealed an escalating societal consciousness regarding the paramount significance of obtaining high-quality sleep.
Consequently, the percentage of Galaxy Watch users regularly engaging with the sleep function on a weekly basis nearly doubled last year compared to the year prior, encompassing a substantial half of all users.
Furthermore, an impressive 40 percent of these individuals consistently employ the sleep function at least three times a week, conscientiously monitoring and assessing their sleep health.
By leveraging cutting-edge sensors within the Galaxy Watch, including those capable of detecting nocturnal restlessness and an optical heart rate sensor attuned to heart rate and oxygen saturation levels, Samsung facilitates comprehensive analysis of sleep patterns and stages.
Notably, Samsung has pioneered the introduction of a distinctive sleep coaching program that categorizes users into eight distinct animal archetypes. Informed by a wealth of accumulated sleep data, this innovative feature judiciously recommends specific sleep approaches tailored to each user’s unique profile.
For instance, an individual prone to frequent awakenings may be advised to adopt strategies mirroring the protective behavior of a diligent guardian safeguarding its precious eggs.
As Samsung relentlessly pushes the boundaries of technological innovation, it remains resolute in its commitment to enhancing personal health management capabilities, thereby ensuring users can achieve and sustain optimal well-being through their reliance on Samsung Health and the Galaxy Watch.
