However, that being said, not every country that can purchase the Samsung Galaxy Watch right now has access to ECG monitoring. These countries, including Algeria, Angola, Canada, France, Iran, Japan, Libya, South Africa, and Thailand will have to wait for their respective countries to first approve the use of ECG monitoring.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Watch 3 in four variants.  Of the two 41mm variants, one features LTE while the other relies on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Similarly, one of the 45mm variants features LTE while the other supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Note that ECG will 0only be available in regions where the feature has been authorized. A running analysis will help you run better, improve form, and prevent injuries, while VO2 max follows your cardio progress to provide insight into oxygen consumption.
