Availability of selective features
As Samsung already noted on Wednesday, blood oxygen tests are intended to provide informative health information and are not precise enough to be classified as medical data. What legally constitutes “medical data” varies by country, which is probably why this feature is not available in all markets in which the Galaxy Watch 3 series has been released. Alphabetically: South Africa, Algeria, Angola, Canada, France, Iran, Japan, Libya and Thailand will not have access to this feature.
Galaxy Watch 3’s first update will likely take at least several days to fully roll out. It also won’t be the last big wave of feature additions to the new line of wearable products. For example, Samsung is still adjusting ECG support for the Galaxy Watch 3. This software strategy seems to mimic that seen last year with the Galaxy Watch Active 2, which also lacked ECG monitoring the first. day.
