Fitness apps like Samsung Health, and the health sensors on your phone are there to keep you healthy. But did you know that some apps can help contribute to health research too? Yep, the My BP Lab app records your stress level, blood pressure, and other factors, then sends the records to researchers at Sage Bioworks. In their study, they will analyze users’ data, so they can identify important triggers of stress. And don't worry, your identity will be anonymous.

Note: My BP Lab is not intended as a medical device or for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.

What phones can I use?

My BP Labs will only be available for certain phones. Some phones can track your blood pressure using their sensors, while others need to be connected to a Galaxy Watch Active or Galaxy Watch Active2. 

Phones that can use their sensor:

  • Galaxy S9 and S9+

  • Galaxy S10 and S10+

  • Galaxy Note9

Phones that need a Galaxy Watch Active or Galaxy Watch Active2:

  • Note10, Note10+, and Note10+ 5G

Use My BP Lab with your Galaxy Watch Active
