A new study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that the biometric readings that the Galaxy Watch series provides are 98% accurate.
The North American reference clinical publication goes further and states that the information from the Samsung smartwatch can be compared to the results provided by a laboratory.

Samsung couldn’t have received better news for its wearable series. A recent study published by the renowned American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that the biometric information provided by the South Korean giant’s smartwatch is equivalent to the information obtained by specialty laboratories.
According to the published study the Galaxy Watch has a 98% accuracy in some of your biometric information.
It is important to note that the model used in the study was the Galaxy Watch 4 and that the results recorded by this smartwatch were then compared with the results obtained by the laboratories of Louisiana State University, the Pennington Biomedical Research Center and the University of Hawaii Cancer Center.
The study considered, above all, five indicators of body composition:
Body mass without fatBody mass with the presence of fatSkeletal muscleBasic metabolic rateAmount of water in the body
But it’s not just by providing accurate information that the Galaxy Watch can be effective in combating obesity. Having this information, just a click away, available on the wrist not only avoids constant trips to the doctor for more tests, but also motivates users to practice more physical activity.
Do’s and Don’ts Before a Biometric Data Measurement
The same study, incidentally, makes some recommendations for using the Samsung smartwatch so that the biometric information obtained is as accurate as possible.
The study therefore suggests that measurements be taken on a regular basis and always at the same time of the day, are not made in fast or after a trip to the bathroom.
Plus: all measurements should not be taken after activities that increase body temperaturesuch as physical exercise and a warm bath, and the body should not be in contact with metal objects during biometric data collection. Lastly, women should avoid taking measurements during their period.
