Samsung unveils updated bioactive sensor with ‘AGES Index’ health indicator, expected to debut on Galaxy Watch 7 series


Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is set to take place on Wednesday and the next generation of the company’s Galaxy Watch series is expected to be unveiled during the event. With less than a day left for Samsung to launch the new wearable products, it has offered users a glimpse of its next-generation bioactive sensor that is expected to be available on the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra. The updated sensor is claimed to enable advanced predictive and preventive wellness features and provide accurate health measurements. Samsung also says it has added more LEDs and photodiodes to the sensor.

In a blog post, Samsung has shared details about the next-generation bioactive sensor that will come in the next Galaxy Watch series. The new sensor has a new design and Samsung says it has optimized the sensor placement to provide accurate readings. It is equipped with standard green and red LEDs as well as blue, yellow, purple, and ultraviolet LEDs.

Samsung says the new LEDs improve the accuracy of the updated bioactive sensor when measuring health metrics such as heart rate, sleep quality, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, and stress levels. The company claims that heart rate measurements during intense workouts are 30 percent more accurate than the sensor on its existing smartwatch.

One of the new functions enabled by the bioactive sensor will be the “Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) Index”. Samsung describes the AGEs index as an indicator of metabolic health and biological aging that is strongly influenced by overall lifestyle and dietary habits. The index gives a look at the wearer’s biological age to help them make informed decisions about their health journey and work towards a healthier future.

Samsung’s post suggests that the AGEs index could be introduced following the launch of new wearables at the Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10.
