Samsung announced that its application for electrocardiogram monitoring or otherwise ECG, has been given the green light by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). So far, South Korea has been the only country where the operation has been approved monitoring electrocardiogram of the company.

The ECG feature is available to users of the company's devices through the Samsung Health Monitor app when connected to a compatible smartphone Galaxy. ECG monitoring can also be used to monitor a user's heart rate but also to scan for any signs of abnormality or to detect signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib).

The company made the long-awaited debut of ECG in the US with its new Galaxy Watch 3 and Watch Active 2 smartwatches.

"These pilot participants will help the organization develop a better and more flexible approach to digital health technology, focusing on software programming rather than a single product."
