The tech giant is now reportedly working on adding more health-tracking features based on skin temperature. However, there are no further details available about the update yet. Meanwhile, the menstrual cycle tracking feature is currently accessible across 32 countries including Korea, the US, and European regions. It uses an infrared temperature sensor to provide accurate data on menstrual cycles.

A Samsung official, who is in charge of Samsung Health Service, has announced via the Samsung community forum for Korea that the company will expand the usage of the skin temperature sensor to more health-tracking features. The new features using temperature sensors will be available in a future software update for the device, as per the announcement.

As mentioned above, the feature is currently rolling out across 32 countries including Korea, the US and 30 European countries. However, there is no information yet on the availability of this feature in India. Interestingly, the data collected by the sensor are encrypted and stored on the user's device, according to Samsung.
