The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ come with sound health tracking features. Apart from regular health stats, you can also use the phones to monitor your heart rate and blood pressure using sensors. While the heart rate sensor has been on Galaxy devices for several years, BP sensor is Galaxy S9 exclusive – making it the first commercial phone that can measure your blood pressure.

However, the BP sensor was inactive as it requires a separate app to function. Now, Samsung, in collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), has announced an app called My BP for blood pressure measurements. The app is available in Google Play Store, but only in the US for now.

You can still download My BP Lab app’s Apk file and test it on Galaxy S9 in India.

Hi all developers who has Samsung S9, S9+
If interesting - please, try the attached project to check if the HEART_RATE may work.
But, please, publish the result and maybe the fixed project.
