Blood pressure data obtained with the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic can be synced through the Samsung Health app, even if you have a smartphone from another brand. How? Following step by step is the procedure that we are about to describe below.
How to Sync Blood Pressure Data with Samsung Health and Galaxy Watch4
As you know, Samsung Galaxy Watch4 offers many features related to health and fitness, but some of these are limited to certain regions or can only be used and exploited in combination with Samsung smartphones. One of the latter concerns blood pressure.
Thanks to the method we unveiled to you last year, you can download a modified version of the Samsung Health Monitor developed by an XDA member to get around the limitation and be able to use ECG and blood pressure even when pairing the smartwatch with non-Samsung devices. but there is a drawback: the lack of the ability to synchronize blood pressure data.
This limit can now be circumvented by following a specific procedure, which we are about to show you. The developer and Senior Member XDA Dante63 have in fact found a solution for this too. So here’s what you need to do to enable blood pressure synchronization with Galaxy Watch4, Samsung Health, and a device from another brand.
Note: Make sure you don’t delete this folder, or the BP sync feature will stop working.
Having the aforementioned modified version of Samsung Health Monitor on board, first, you need to download the SamsungHealth.zip file through this link to Google Drive, then extract the folder called SamsungHealth and copy it into the Download folder of your smartphone. You should then find it in a path similar to ” / Internal Storage / Download / SamsungHealth / FeatureManagerOn ” or ” / storage / emulated / 0 / Download / SamsungHealth / FeatureManagerOn “.
At this point you have to forcefully terminate the Samsung Health app: to do this you need to get to the application information, accessible either from the system settings or by holding down the icon, and select “ Forced shutdown “. After doing so you can open the app itself, go to the settings (passing from the three dots at the top right), scroll down, select “ About Samsung Health ” and press several times on the version number. This should bring up two new sections: ” Set features ” and ” Developer mode “.
Select the first, ” Set features “, then ” Health Analytics ” (as shown in the screenshots) and go to the ” DEV ” option. Now scroll down to the “DataPlatform” menu, search for ” Developer mode ” and select ” On “. Now close the Samsung Health app using the recent apps menu, go back to the app information menu and force quit the app again, this time also clearing the cache.
Now verify that the permissions are in place within the modified version of Samsung Health Monitor by selecting “ Data ” in the drop-down menu and enabling what is needed. At this point, if you have followed the entire procedure correctly, you should be able to sync your blood pressure data with Samsung Health.
