Other than checking your blood pressure, you also can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) with your Galaxy Watch5. The ECG tracking feature helps you measure the electrical activity of the heart. ECG is currently the best way to detect your irregular rhythms and the information is recorded on the graph. It will also help to check whether atrial fibrillation or sinus rhythm is present. If atrial fibrillation is present, the smartwatch will indicate an irregular rhythm reading of 50-120 BPM. If sinus rhythm is present, the smartwatch will indicate a regular rhythm reading of 50-100 BPM. Best to consult the doctor if you receive Atrial Fibrillation as the result, or if you are not feeling well.
