Aiming to Advance Health and Wellness Innovation

Samsung Privileged Health SDK

Samsung Privileged Health SDK

It is our goal to ensure people have access to health and wellness features which help them reach their wellness goals. More importantly, it is our vision to provide deeper insights and data that can guide users during their health & wellness journey.

The Samsung Privileged Health SDK is a software platform that enables the medical community and digital health solution providers to harness the power of Galaxy Watch’s advanced sensors to develop powerful health-sensing capabilities in their applications. The health data collected by our Galaxy Watch can uncover new and meaningful insights about the user’s health.

Leveraging Galaxy Watch’s Advanced Health Sensors

As the result of our relentless experiments and research, our Galaxy Watches now host powerful sensors to detect and monitor user’s mobility metrics and biometrics. The BioActive sensor first introduced on the Galaxy Watch4 uses a single unique chip that combines three health sensors: optical heart sensor, electrode sensor, and bioelectrical impedance analysis. The Samsung Privileged Health SDK uses our sophisticated BioActive sensor and accelerometer to provide tracking APIs for raw signals like photoplethysmography (PPG), electrocardiogram (ECG), and three-axis motion metrics. It also provides processed data like body impedance analysis (BIA), heart rate with inter-beat interval (IBI), blood oxygen level (SpO2), and more. The tracking APIs provided by the Samsung Privileged Health SDK enable you to build solutions and algorithms to get an in-depth view of a user’s health.
* These features are intended for general wellness and fitness purposes only. Not intended for use in detection, diagnosis, or treatment of any medical condition or disease. Availability of these features may vary by market or device.
* The ECG tracking is only available in select markets.
*The ECG tracking is not intended for users with known arrhythmias other than atrial fibrillation or users under 22 years old. Users should not interpret or take clinical action based on the device output without consultation of a qualified healthcare professional.
*The BIA measurement is not intended for users who have an implanted cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator, or other electronic medical devices are inside of their body.
* Do not measure BIA if user is pregnant.
* The BIA measurement results may not be accurate if user under 20 years old.

Get deeper health insights to open new possibilities

The possible applications of the health data by Samsung Privileged Health SDK are numerous, ranging from remote patient monitoring to digital therapeutics. In particular, the raw sensor signals and processed data can lead to the discovery of new digital biomarkers for detecting signs of certain health conditions. For example, Galaxy Watch can notify a user if it detects a high heart rate or low heart rate while the user is at rest. There are boundless possibilities of what we can do by combining this data to get deeper insights.

Creating the Future of Health and Wellness with Partners

For example, Tobii, a global leader in eye tracking and pioneer in attention computing, has created smartwatch-based drowsiness detection software that monitors drawsiness from the heart rate. This software aims to prevent fatigue-related accidents.
