Samsung Galaxy Watch Announces Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN) – Samsung announced the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN) feature of the Samsung Health Monitor application, helping users track abnormal heart rhythms.

Together with the Electrocardiogram (EKG) function, the IHRN feature proactively monitors heart rhythms indicating atrial fibrillation (AFib), right from their wrist.

“We are excited to announce that Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification, designed to help millions of people around the world who may not be aware of potential heart risks, has been approved by the FDA,” said Hon Pak, vice president and head of the Digital Health Team, MX. Business at Samsung Electronics.

Cardiovascular disease remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide and AFib — a type of arrhythmia — is widely considered a warning sign for major cardiovascular problems that can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other cardiovascular complications.

Additionally, some cases of AFib are asymptomatic or even silent, leaving people unaware of the risks.

Once activated in the Samsung Health Monitor app, this feature will check for irregular heart rhythms in the background via the Galaxy Watch’s BioActive Sensor.

If a number of consecutive measurements are irregular, the Galaxy Watch alerts the user to potential AFib activity, prompting them to take an ECG using their watch for a more accurate measurement.

The Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification feature will be available as part of the One UI 5 Watch, which will be available to the Galaxy Watch series.
