It won't be activated lah. If Samsung wants it to be activated long time back you should get it.

IMO, to qualify as a medical-grade watch the followings have to be met

1) Must be approved by the local health authority unless she simply approved the watch based on FDA and European certifications.

2) A license needs to be issued based on the model of the watch applied for as a medical-grade device.

3) The watch needs to be calibrated every year for its accuracy as it can provide false health info and endangering the life of the user if it's out of calibration. This is especially true of electronic devices which can suffer from electronic drift as time go by.

Based on the above ASUS & SAMSUNG might not want this feature to be made available to the users considering the small market here and the license won't be cheap too.

Secondly, the user is unlikely to foot that yearly watch calibration cost because smartwatches are just cheap items and new models with new/improved features are released every year or so.

It's not "thinking about that". Just go and ask Samsung store personnel and see when the features like BP and ECG will be available. Ask them to confirm and see.

Samsung Watch 4 will be releasing soon and the Watch 2 still don't have the features. You say lah

From article

The Galaxy Watch Active2 BT (40mm) gets a new colour to its stable. Technically, it's two colours, since the strap comes in Violet while the watch case comes in Rose Gold.

It's officially available now at S$398, over at the Samsung Online Store and Samsung Experience Stores.
