I just upgraded from the Galaxy Watch to the GW3 to gain the blood pressure feature. I have managed to get the ECG feature working, but for the life of me, I cannot get the blood pressure feature working. There is no widget on the watch for blood pressure. I am 70 years old and reading these posts, I can see that I am out of my league with most of this software. I build computers for children/grandchildren, but pretty stupid on software/firmware. Can someone tell me what I need to do to get the BP feature working? The watch is the SM-845 model. My smart phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8+. Thanks for any assistance you may be able to provide. Please, just keep in mind that you need to keep it simple for a 70 year old.

Dear Sir. :cool:

I am from Germany so excuse my bad English...

If you mean with SM-R845 the US Variant... aka SM-R845U...
And you maybe live in USA...

Then Samsung blocked/removed/disabled Blood Pressure feature for US...


You can bypass this Limitation... BUT this is not 1 click solution...
So it take time and you have to do funny things with Software Tools on PC...

Better Windows Machine instead Apple MAC stuff...

I hope this info helps you little bit...

Best Regards

Samsung is still waiting on FDA clearance for BP. I found a work around that is pretty simple and doesn't require loading any firmware. There's a BP study that is compatible with the GW3 that enables BP on the watch. You need to install the "My BP Lab" Apps on your phone and watch then you will need any BP cuff to calibrate it. Phone app: https://apps.samsung.com/appquery/appDetail.as?appId=org.sagebionetworks.research.bp
Watch app: https://apps.samsung.com/gear/appDetail.as?appId=org.sagebionetworks.bp-lab

Danke mein Freund. Du hast Recht. Ich lebe in den Vereinigten Staaten, Florida, um genau zu sein. Ich habe 3 Jahre in Spangdahlem, Deutschland gelebt und war begeistert. Könnten Sie bitte eine IP posten, die zeigt, wie Sie das GW3 in die Lage versetzen, Blutdruck zu liefern? Ich könnte es versuchen, solange ich meine Uhr nicht ziegele. Danke noch einmal.

Don't worry you can't brick your watch installing the app, it's pretty simple just register for the study then install the apps and follow the instructions. https://mybplab.com/

@jlabit

I have no experience with mybplab... because my SM-G920F is too old and Android Version is too low...
But this could be the easiest way... for Blood Pressure.

Samsungs Variant of Blood Pressure in this Samsung Health Monitor App thingie require "heavy" action...
To bypass the Security Limitations... IMHO.

Suggestion try first MyBPLab app...
Here are no "Hacking" activities required.

Sorry for late answer... but this is not really easy... and GW3 LTE makes it not really easier... for my tiny brain.

Best Regards

Sorry.
I have limited time and energy and my English...

You can look here:

I have solved all my problems with Rooting Firmware...

So I can install with SDB Tool... uninstall with SDB Tool... modify and other things tralala...

But this seems not "beloved" solution for other users...

Additional problem... Rooting method I am using... require available Firmware files...
This seems heavy problem to get latest leaked files for netOdin...

+ Root method not tested yet on GW3... because I have NO tester(s).


Best Regards

Edit 1.
My fault...
R845USQU1BTH4 is available as netOdin files...
So I could root...
Also BTK1 for SM-R840 and SM-R850 leaked...

I have also few alternate ideas... how to remove preinstalled ECG SHM from US devices...
Still Root... but for instance with help of Combination firmware...

In main it is "only" needed to nuke files from CSC partition... or edit them...

You're saying the watch came with ECG but no BP...? And that you have the Samsung Health Monitor...?

Yes, my watch is a Galaxy Watch 3, U.S. Version, Model SM-R845. The smart phone is a Samsung Galaxy 8+. The watch currently has an ECG widget, which is functional. There is also a functional SPO2 feature available on it. However, there is no available widget for blood pressure. The Samsung Health Monitor App is installed on the phone. I have attempted to use the MY BP Lab 2 app on the phone, but have been unable to find the app for the watch in the watches Galaxy Store. I have Stage 3 Kidney Disease, and the Blood Pressure Monitor feature on the watch would be extremely helpful. Thanks for your, and everyone above's response. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to everyone on here.

Hope you get better, please bump into my thread, try to use the BP installer and see if it actually installs (praying it works)...
Happy Holidays to you and your beloved ones...

I also found the MY BP Lab app. Below is a little more information regarding the BP/Stress study and the app.
For those of you waiting for the Samsung BP module you can consider the My BP Lab app available in the Google Play Store. The app is sponsored by the University of California, San Francisco (https://www.stressmeasurement.org/). The focus is on how stress impacts blood pressure. I've been using it for several months on my Watch 3 and my Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra. For several weeks I also used my cuff BP meter to compare to the app reading on my Watch 3 and it correlates surprisingly well. The only downside is that it asks for some personal information. I've kept it to a minimum and the app does allow you to skip questions you don't want to answer, e.g. "did you have sex last night"? This is one you can skip - or not!
