Samsung announced its much-awaited flagship smartphones Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra at its Unpacked event that took place the day before yesterday.

Taking on Apple Watch that is now the best health wearable in the market, the newly-launched Samsung Galaxy Watch3 offers blood oxygen (SpO2) and fall detection tools, and would include blood pressure (BP) monitoring and ECG readings in markets where these features have been authorised. The OTA update is 80MB in size and can be installed from the Galaxy Wearable application, accepting that it's now accessible for download in your domain.

As Samsung already noted on Wednesday, blood oxygen analytics are meant to provide informative insights into one's health and aren't accurate enough to be classified as medical data.

Exactly who can and can't cross the Qld border
From Saturday, 8 August, at 1am Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced the border with New South Wales will close. There are some circumstances that allow a person to enter Queensland even after having been in a hotspot.

If you're looking for a new smartwatch, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is getting a $40.99 discount, leaving it at $239. In a alphabetical order: Algeria, Angola, Canada, France, Iran, Japan, Libya, South Africa, and Thailand won't gain admittance to this feature. This won't be the last significant wave of feature increments to the new wearable lineup, either.

Even though the ECG feature on Galaxy Watch Active2 in South Korea is now active, it's still unclear when it will be enabled on the smartwatch in other markets.

ECG Monitoring is not live yet in a lot of countries including the US.
