Samsung Universe: We can really count on Galaxy Watch devices

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition according to a study published by , the suitable Galaxy Watch devices measure body composition with high accuracy, which was confirmed by the laboratory results of the Louisiana State University, the Pennington Biomedical Research Center and the Cancer Research Center of the University of Hawaii. The independent study confirms that Samsung’s wearable devices, as promised by the manufacturer, can indeed help prevent or treat obesity, thereby directly contributing to reducing the number of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases, of which obesity is responsible for 60%.



The researchers compared the data generated by Samsung watches with the results of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and clinically qualified, eight-point bioelectrical impedance analysis, based on which the study found that the results of the bioelectrical impedance analysis of Samsung watches suitable for measuring body mass composition were 97-98% they show a correlation with results measured with clinical reference instruments. In short, they are accurate.


Compared to BMI (body mass index), the BIA value, which contains data on skeletal muscle, basic metabolism, body water content and body fat percentage, can provide a significantly more accurate and comprehensive picture of the users’ physical condition. Knowing the measurements and the results, which can be carried out continuously and easily, can greatly contribute to awareness and provide motivation to take the appropriate steps, say specifically an extra 2,500.

Based on a meta-analysis of the effects of wearable activity monitors, it was observed that the number of steps increased by 2,500 per day due to the use of the devices, and a randomized control trial registered a 68-minute reduction in passive time, and the wearing of physiological data accessories generally resulted in 60% of users some level of increase in activity.

The first Samsung device that also measured body mass composition was the Galaxy Watch4.
The first Samsung device to measure body mass composition was the Galaxy Watch4.

Last year’s Galaxy Watch4 series was the first of Samsung’s watches to offer a three-point body weight composition measurement, and this year’s Watch5 models also provide the function. The measurement is extremely simple, all you have to do is touch the surface of the two physical buttons of the devices with your index finger and ring finger so that our hand does not touch the hand wearing the watch. The measurement takes a few seconds, you don’t even need the connected device and the companion application, the measurement can be started directly from the watch and the results will be available.

Based on the results of independent research, the suitable Galaxy Watch devices produce extremely accurate and reliable results regarding body weight composition, but with a few practical tricks we can optimize the consistency of the data. The measurements should be taken at roughly the same time every day, on an empty stomach (we skip the measurement during menstruation), preferably use the bathroom beforehand, try to avoid activities that increase body heat and remove jewelry before the measurement.
