The self-possessed Galaxy Watch 5, is doing much well in controversy with reference to the temperature sensors… Although the recent Unpacked has unveiled Galaxy Watch 5 with some packed features which also compiles it as superior fitness tracking wearable. Why this is so? The reason is it is furnished with a temperature sensor for health measurement in any context. It is yet not fortunate with some efficient features which could characterize it more scenic.
Watch 5 is a couple of steps forward from than Galaxy Watch 4 series. It features an improved BioActive sensor that can take more precise ECG (electrocardiogram) measurements. As well as your blood pressure, so long as you live in the approved regions. But in some regions where these features are not allowed, the Galaxy Watch 5 cannot serve. But notably, this can be done in the Galaxy Watch 4 series, when it comes to health tracking. Might, this flaw will fix in the future.
Are you using a temperature sensor in the Galaxy Watch 5?
Talking about the health features, one that isn’t often noted is the built-in temperature sensor. When the new wearable was announced, Samsung touted the temperature sensor among other new features, though there was a small catch – it will not work further on release.
You can’t activate it like you can heart tracking, nor can you head into the Samsung Health app and see your temperature patterns throughout the day. The sensor itself is meant to be used for sleep tracking to help monitor patterns during rest. Other than that, there is no other use for the sensor inside the Galaxy Watch 5. It seems odd to include a sensor and not feature it beyond a promised-use case.
Surprisingly, the excellent thing is that Apple’s new Apple Watch Series 8. It is set to make use of a temperature sensor for menstrual cycle tracking. Far off, the sensor could expand into more situations and provide a greater understanding of health patterns day in and out.
Might we see more uses in the future?
Presently, the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro don’t really recruit the temperature sensor in an effective way. There’s a chance we could see more uses appear over time, with the possibility of third-party developers being able to incorporate that data into apps. Of course, the huge wall Samsung has to scale is health regulation and guidelines among various regions.
The United States has yet to see blood pressure monitoring from the Galaxy Watch 5 due to health restrictions. Being able to take temperature data at any given point is a sensitive feature that may require a hard fight to gain approval.
I expect that the temperature sensor will soon be back with more intensive features and fix the flaws. For now, it seems the sensor will have to live inactive inside an activity-tracking wearable.
