In case you're located in one of these countries, you can use the Samsung Health Monitor app to download these two features. In addition, you will need to install a new software update for your watch before you can start using these apps. It has been added that the software update is currently being rolled out. However, it is not for sure in which countries it has already rolled out and what all countries are still left.

In case you want to check for the update, you can do it using the Galaxy Wearable app. It's worth mentioning that the blood pressure monitoring feature requires calibration before you start using it. In order to do that, you'll need to measure your blood pressure using both the watch and the dedicated blood pressure monitor three times. And then put the values into the app. Once that is done, you can use the app itself with your watch.
