Samsung Global Goals

In recent years, the use of Bluetooth headsets has raised significantly. Brands like Samsung also offer at least one and often two new earplugs each year. Earlier this year, the Galaxy Buds Pro was announced along with the Galaxy S21 series. The ears are constantly renewed and improved.

Adding to this, a new Samsung patent shared by LetsGoDigital suggests that the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Buds may come with a biometric sensor. These sensors help users track their workouts and other important health measures.

Samsung is set to launch its next year flagship Galaxy S22 series in February 2022, which is not far off. In addition to the hyped and exciting Galaxy S22 series, the company will also release the Galaxy Buds Pro 2 and Galaxy Buds Live 2 in the year 2022.

According to reports, Buds Pro 2 will launch in the second quarter of 2022. On the other hand, Buds Live 2 will launch in August. With these new earbuds, Samsung is expected to improve only the fit, finish and audio quality. The Biometric sensors are also expected to be brought in to track important health metrics.

According to a patent filed by Samsung, the next generation Galaxy Buds will be able to measure health metrics using a biometric sensor. These include heart rate, SpO2 and blood pressure.

In addition, it can measure blood sugar levels, your vascular status and your stress levels. All of these health standards are very important to those who wear these earbuds during workouts. There are some headphones that come with a sensor to measure the user’s heart rate.

However, earbuds that have the ability or sensor to measure blood sugar or stress levels are not currently on the market. This health measurement is achieved using a light receiver such as a light-emitting diode and a photodiode. The patent indicates that laser diode (LD) and infrared diode (IR) can also be used in the next-generation Samsung earbuds.

So, the next generation Galaxy Buds are definitely worth a look. It’s even more important for such people if you are really wearing wireless earbuds while exercising and working out. Samsung earbuds are known for their good sound quality and great build quality. Adding a health sensor makes the Galaxy Buds more suitable for workouts.
