Calibrate Blood Pressure App – How it works

You need a blood pressure monitor in the household like for example such devices on Amazon. If you have such a blood pressure monitor, you can get started.

Opens the My BP Lab app on the Samsung Galaxy S9. Now select "Recalibrate with using a cuff". Then select "Other Cuff". Use your other blood pressure monitor to measure your blood pressure and enter the values into the app.

If this calibration measurement was successful, the values "systolic" and "diastolic" will be displayed in the app from now on. You now know how to measure your blood pressure with the Samsung Galaxy S9.
