Galaxy Watch 5 series gets an important women's health feature: cycle tracking

The new feature will be available to users in 32 countries across Europe, North America, and Asia. It uses Samsung's sensor technology with Natural Cycles' innovative fertility tech so that users get detailed insights into their menstrual cycle.

Dr. Raoul Scherwitzl, co-founder and co-CEO of Natural Cycle, said:

Natural Cycles developed the world's first app powered by a proprietary algorithm that determines the user's fertility status based on body temperature and other key fertility indicators. This tech will now power the Cycle Tracking feature in the Samsung Health app for users of the Galaxy Watch 5 series.

The Galaxy Watch 5 will track skin temperature with its infrared sensor and that, coupled with menstrual cycle tracking, will help the timepiece find the best fertility window for each individual user.

 said Hon Pak, Vice President and Head of Digital Health Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics.

The feature will be available in 32 markets, including the U.S., in Q2 of 2023. It's already been approved by Korea's MFDS and listed with the FDA.
