New Galaxy Watch Active to have ECG and Fall Detection
Apple launched the Watch Series 4 with ECG and Fall Detection, which won it quite a few wearables fans. Now Samsung might be preparing a counter-attack with the upcoming Galaxy Watch Active 2, rumored to have the very same duo of features.
The Korean maker is bringing a direct answer to Apple's feature and its ECG (Electrocardiography) app. It measures the heart rhythm and lets you know when there are irregularities. Then it can be shared with medics for a more precise reading.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will also have Fall Detection - if the wearable detects falling to the floor, it would immediately nudge you with a vibration. If you are not able to respond - the watch will call the emergency services.
While the launch date for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is unknown, the watch could arrive alongside the Galaxy Note10 at the Unpacked event on August 7 or at IFA at the start of September.
One for the millenials then. If you fall for someone the watch will detect it...and then it calls emergency services...

Does anybody actually read the article? If you fall the watch gives an alert, only it you fail tl cancel it in a certain time will it call emergency.

I'd like this, but does anyone know if this will be approved in the USA, by the FDA? The apple is approved. I love my G3 Frontier, but would like this, if it had the feature, and, approved by the Food & Drug Administration.
