Samsung introduces the Hand Wash app for Galaxy watch to help users maintain hygiene, by reminding them about washing hands at a regular interval.
Samsung Research Institute-Bangalore or SRI-B’s UX and the wearable team, worked nonstop throughout the most recent 2 weeks, to think of an answer that helps people keep healthy and safe.
Accordingly, SRI-B employees, “Mostly working remotely from their homes, built the Hand Wash app, a wearable app for Galaxy Watch that prompts users to wash their hands, a key preventive attribute to remain safe.”
Samsung’s Hand Wash app on Galaxy Watch helps users maintain hand hygiene by periodically reminding them about it. And ensuring each wash is thorough for the duration of 20 seconds is in line with the WHO recommended best practices.
The app comes with preset reminders that users can customize further to support their needs and schedule. It also notifies users if they miss any of the scheduled pit stops to the washbasin. Additionally, it also allows users to trace their daily wash trends to create healthy habits over a period.
Moreover, the watch face also shows the time period since the last wash to alert users about their hygiene in real time.
A great initiative by the Samsung research team to halt the spread of COVID-19 along with maintaining good health and hygiene.
The Samsung Hand Wash App is available to download from Galaxy Store.
