- Samsung Research India has debuted a new Hand Wash app for Galaxy Watch users.
- The app was built in two weeks by remote engineers from Samsung Research Institute-Bangalore.
- Its goal is to help users keep track of how long and how often they wash their hands amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Samsung researchers have created a new "Hand Wash" app for Galaxy Watch users, intended to help users wash their hands for the recommended amount of time and form a daily routine.
Samsung India explained:
Current health advice during the coronavirus pandemic includes a focus on regular handwashing and hand sanitizing. With life becoming more hectic for many, it's easy to lose sight of the smaller things.
Aside from reminders, Samsung's researchers intend the app to foster a healthy and consistent handwashing habit. It automatically tracks daily handwashes and shows the time since last wash on its watch face, nudging users towards regular intervals.
The app and watch face are available to download via Samsung's Galaxy Store.
Not a bad idea, but am I supposed to touch my watch after possibly having contaminated hands, then wash my hands? It would be better if the app could be voice activated.
App is not really an app. It's a watch face without voice activated support.
Yeah I'm not downloading it. Saw it last week, it's an ugly watch face
