The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 will get ECG support, but it will be delayed
The ability to generate electrocardiograms (ECGs) is one of the most sought-after features in newer smartwatches. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 was the first Samsung wearable to support this function. However, the OEM was not in a position to activate it at its launch, saying that it would become available by 1Q2020.
Unfortunately, this quarter has now nearly passed, and there is still no ECG on this Watch Active variant. Needless to say, this has left many of its owners quite disgruntled. Now, a member of a community forum who describes themselves as "in charge of the operation of Samsung Health Service" on this website has stated that it is on the way.
This individual claims that, while ECG for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is in the works, it will take some time before a stable version of its support will be available. Therefore, the watch's users may have to wait until later in 2020 before this next-gen form of heart-rate monitoring arrives.
