Fitness apps like Samsung Health, and the health sensors on your phone are there to keep you healthy. But there is an app called as My BP Lab which can monitor your blood pressure level and stress level.
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. 

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 optical sensors:
  • Galaxy S9 series
  • Galaxy S10 series
  • Galaxy Note 9 series
Phone that need Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Watch Active 2
  • Note 10 series
  • S20 series
Please 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. It is to be used only as a reference.

To start using My BP Lab you need to register an account and complete the survey avout your health. The readings are a combination of algorithm and artificial intelligence so make sure that you fill it properly
