    My local T-Mobile store had a working model of the Note 9, and were nice enough to let me play with it for a few minutes. I was able to install and confirm that the My BP Lab app works on the Note 9.

    For those who do not know, with the release of the the Galaxy S9; the built in heart monitor now also has the ability to measure blood pressure. Currently there is only one app that I know of that works with that feature
    "My BP Lab" and to use it you have to agree to take part in a University study on daily stress.

    I have been using it on the S9 Plus since launch (one of the reasons I switched from the Note 8) and wanted to confirm it working as I move back to the Note family.

    Thank you for this information. I too use "my BP lab" app on my S9+ and was curious if the Note 9 would have the updated abilities. Awesome!!!!

    My Pleasure. I am hoping to have more reports like this as I get back into the Note using groove after the 24th. Glad to know this info was helpful to others.

    I was not able to confirm scientifically if it was "better", my impression was that it worked on the first attempt without having to fidget like I do on the S9 plus. But that may well be my desire for it to work influencing how I handled the phone.

    Jumping back in on this. I signed up in the My BP Lab app, but once I finished signing up, it said my Note 9 didn't have the correct sensor. I tried that about 3 weeks ago. I then just reinstalled it today seeing that the app is now version 2.0 and it's working just fine!

    Do you hold it against some part of your anatomy?
    Does it measure O2 saturation as well? That would seem easier for a phone than bp.

    Samsung Health has been able to measure O2 saturation for awhile now using the heart rate sensor.

    That's only for Oxygen Saturation, Heart Rate and stress. Not Blood Pressure.

    It's the first thing on the back of the phone in the row with the camera lens. It looks like a vertical rectangle.

    Sorry I misunderstood. I thought they were looking for Blood Pressure since that's what the OP was talking about.
