Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Revolutionizes Running with University of Michigan Partnership
Thanks to Samsung’s research partnership, the Galaxy Watch 6 revolutionizes running with the University of Michigan Exercise & Sport Science Initiative. This collaboration is launched to help runners manage their health and physical activity by providing more reliable and accurate data.
The Michigan Performance Research Laboratory (MiPR) — ESSI’s core research lab — will oversee an eight-month study that uses the Galaxy Watch series to estimate the VO2 max and sweat loss of participants as they run.
The study will compare reference data against smartwatch data from both indoor (treadmill) and outdoor running trials of different distances, from 2.5km to 20km.
Runners at all levels grapple with sweat loss, dehydration and heat management, particularly during the summer months. Samsung and University of Michigan teams hope the study’s findings will further enhance smartwatch technology, giving runners more accurate measurements of their health metrics.
Galaxy Watch 6
Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic feature personalized fitness coaching, advanced sleep management, and health monitoring. For runners, the new Personalized Heart Rate Zone feature provides five optimal running intensity levels based on individual physical capabilities.
Additionally, Track Run helps runners record their runs while on a running track. During a run, Galaxy Watch provides in-depth analysis including asymmetry, regularity, and ground contact time to help improve performance and reduce injury.
