Samsung explained Galaxy Watch 5 Body Composition and Health features
Samsung offers one of the better ways to understand your overall health is in your body composition. On your Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, you can easily use the Body composition feature.
Knowing about your body composition can tell you whether your body fat percentage is within a healthy range. Through this, you’ll learn how to make the right changes to achieve your physical goals and reduce your risk of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol in the long run.
There are many ways to measure your body composition, but some can be expensive, not generally available to the public, or simply impractical, while others can be error-prone if done incorrectly. If you juggle a busy schedule and are always on the go, but want to maintain a healthy body, you may need options that fit your lifestyle.
So Samsung says hello to BIA. It stands for Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a method of estimating your body composition by sending small electric currents (completely painless) throughout your body to see how easily they pass through your tissues. The voltage is measured to calculate the impedance (resistance) of the body. Most body water is stored in muscles, so if a person is muscular, that person also has more water in their body, resulting in lower impedance.
This method is simple, cheap, fast, and non-invasive. No need to buy expensive devices as the BIA sensor is available in affordable devices like Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
With the Body Composition feature on Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series, you can take measurements on the go. Still, the company recommends regular visits to your doctor for standard health checks.
Not only that, but you can also log your results on the Samsung Health app. It’s great when you can track your progress toward sound health. The app also provides suggestions on how to improve your diet or exercise routine to achieve your physical goals. In addition, when you connect the watch to the Samsung Health app, it gives you even more value, like sleep, stress, blood pressure, ECG, and more.
Samsung shares solution for Internet connectivity issues
Are you also suddenly facing Internet or Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your Samsung smartphone? If this is the case, then let us tell you that many times some such functions are enabled in our smartphones due to which issues start occurring.
If you are also facing Internet connectivity issues in your Samsung smartphone, one of the reasons could be the private DNS function. If you enter and use a specific Private DNS provider hostname, the Internet/Data/Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi) connection may become unavailable or slow, depending on the location of the DNS servers.
The network error occurs if you have installed the app and entered a private DNS provider host to block ads. The problem can be rectified by disabling the previously set private DNS.
