As we could already suspect from the leaks of recent months, the new optical sensor of Samsung watches integrates many more LEDs for a better analysis not only of the heart rate, but also of the oxygen saturation in the blood:

[/quote]Samsung engineers focused on three improvements for the new sensor: improving the performance of the light-receiving diodes, adding additional LED colors, and optimally positioning them across the entire sensor.[/quote]

Concretely, in addition to green, red and infrared LEDs, the new sensor will add more colors with blue, violet, yellow and ultraviolet LEDs. With the integration and positioning of these LEDs and sensors, Samsung will innovate further and is now able to measure unexplored health monitoring data on smartwatches. “, says the manufacturer.

New health measures on the agenda for Samsung watches

Samsung also indicates that these diodes will allow the measurement of new data such as the index ” AGEs », pour « Advanced Glycation end products » (advanced glycation end products). The idea of ​​this new measurement is to take stock of the user’s metabolic health and estimate their biological age based on their lifestyle and eating habits.

The name AGEs also suggests that Samsung’s new BioActive sensor could eventually measure users’ blood sugar levels. This is a health measurement that major smartwatch manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are working hard on. With this new sensor, Samsung could therefore be able to offer it on these future watches.

We will learn more about the new Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked conference, which will be held this Wednesday in Paris, starting at 3 p.m.
