Rotating bezel is one of the most useful features offered by the Samsung smartwatches. While Samsung is going to introduce the next-gen Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro smartwatches, there’s still a lot of confusion on whether the top variant will feature a rotating bezel or not.

Meanwhile, Samsung insider IceUniverse now comes up with new information that could disappoint you, in case you are wondering to buy a rotating bezel smartwatch.

Earlier reports revealed that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be equipped with a big 580mAh battery. Therefore, the battery upgrade could be a possible reason why the Korean tech giant is ditching the iconic rotating bezel from the upcoming smartwatch lineup.

Samsung makes the most excellent smartwatches in the industry which introduce wonderful features. All the Galaxy Watch features are not available in certain regions due to legal limitations. However, Samsung is apparently preparing to roll out Blood Pressure feature to Galaxy Watch users in Malaysia.

According to the information, the Malaysian Medical Device Authority approved the usage of the Samsung Blood Pressure app in Malaysia. The company got approval from the authority in mid-November and is now ready to let users use the Blood Pressure app through a compatible Samsung Watch.

As mentioned in the document approved by the Malaysian authority, Samsung’s Blood Pressure App is a software-only, mobile medical application intended for use with a compatible Samsung Galaxy Watch and Phone to create, record, store and display blood pressure information.

Moreover, the Blood Pressure app determines the systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as pulse rate, and provides values and history charts following calibration with an upper-arm, cuff-based blood pressure monitor. Notably, The BP App is intended for over-the-counter (OTC) use in adults 22 years and older.

It’s worth mentioning that there is no mention of the Samsung ECG app in the database, which means, it may release later. However, it’s most likely that the company may introduce both ECG and Blood Pressure features for Malaysian consumers at the same time.

Samsung’s Blood Pressure monitoring feature works through the calibration process. As part of monitoring blood pressure, the user having a compatible Galaxy Watch must have to enter the reading from an actual blood pressure monitor in the app three times.

Since the application was registered by Samsung itself, we assume that the application is already developed and tested internally. Notably, Huawei and Apple also did the same for their smart wearables to introduce such kinds of features in Malaysia.
