Skin-temperature-based cycle tracking is now rolling out for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro.
The feature will be available within the Samsung Health app in the US, UK, Korea, and other European markets.
The tech makes use of the infrared temperature sensor within the watch to provide better forecasts for menstrual cycles.

There are plenty of good smartwatches around for Android users, but two of the better options are the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Now, Samsung is making them even more useful by enabling skin temperature measurement for menstruators.

Samsung has just announced that the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro can now measure skin temperature, which then feeds into the Cycle Tracking feature. The company had previously announced that the feature would be coming soon, and now, roll out has finally begun for the US, Korea, UK, and 29 European markets.
