Samsung has rolled out an important health feature for Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Series. The lineup includes two devices Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The users of the Samsung smartwatch may now better track their menstrual cycles while they sleep by using the temperature sensor. The new health tracker will be gradually rolled out starting today via upgrades to the Samsung Health app in Korea, the US, and 30 European markets.
According to Samsung’s latest announcement, it has added skin-based temperature measurement to its calendar-based cycle tracking feature. Both Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro can get even more detailed information to manage their menstrual cycles and overall health.
Hon Pak, Vice President and Head of the Digital Health Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics said, “Samsung’s holistic view of wellness has been further advanced by our sensor innovations, delivering in-depth health insights that empower users. The new infrared temperature sensor on Galaxy Watch5 broadens our whole health offerings, providing more convenient ways to track and understand personal health.”

The feature on the Galaxy watches will be accessible in 32 nations, including 30 different European regions, the US, and Korea. India presently lacks access to the Galaxy Watch 5’s new Menstrual Cycle tracker feature. According to the company, basal body temperature (BBT) varies by menstrual phase. So one needs to measure BBT immediately after waking and prior to any physical activity or impact from surroundings.
The company explained that it would be inconvenient and perhaps even forgotten to measure the BBT first thing in the morning to get accurate BBT readings. So the new feature on the smartwatch will now automate this procedure for the user’s convenience.
Natural Cycle is the software that will be doing the Menstrual cycle tracking function. It is integrated with Samsung’s sensor tech and is going to monitor variations in skin temperature during sleep right from the wrist, which is said to be a reliable indicator of basal body temperature. The Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro comes with infrared technology to provide readings that are more accurate even when environmental circumstances vary. Users may track ovulation with Cycle Tracking, which also improves period prediction.
