Samsung's Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification Feature Comes to More Countries

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced that the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN) feature on the Samsung Health Monitor app will soon be available in 13 markets starting this summer. Combined with the app's Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring, the IHRN feature detects heart rhythms suggestive of atrial fibrillation (AFib), helping Galaxy Watch users understand their heart health more comprehensively.

Atrial fibrillation is a common heart rhythm disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by an irregular and often rapid heartbeat. AFib can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and other serious health problems.

The IHRN feature uses the Galaxy Watch's BioActive Sensor to continuously monitor the user's heart rhythm. If the feature detects an irregular heart rhythm, it will notify the user to take an ECG using the Samsung Health Monitor app. The ECG can then be reviewed by a doctor to confirm the diagnosis of AFib.

The IHRN feature is available on the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic. It will be available in the following markets starting this summer:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Korea
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

The IHRN feature is a valuable tool for Galaxy Watch users who want to keep track of their heart health. By monitoring their heart rhythm in the background, the feature can help users identify potential problems early on and seek medical attention as needed.

In addition to the IHRN feature, the Samsung Health Monitor app also offers ECG and Blood Pressure monitoring. These features can help users track their heart health more comprehensively and make informed decisions about their overall health and well-being.
