Wash one, wash another! Samsung announces Hand Wash app to help with hand hygiene

Samsung has launched a new application for smartwatches that promises to be providential in times of pandemic, which calls for extra care with personal hygiene. Washing your hands on a regular basis has become even more necessary, and with that in mind, Samsung decided to help with a new application for its smart watches: Hand Wash.

The app is available on the Galaxy Store and is compatible with some of the South Korean giant’s watches, such as Gear S3, Gear Sports, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active2, and its idea is to help users maintain a proper routine hand hygiene.

There may be disagreements about what it means to wash your hands frequently and carefully, but the app presents a clear guide on how and how regularly people should wash their hands, and uses a reminder to wash their hands and regular breaks during the day . To ensure a lower risk of infection, the ideal is that this number should be between six and ten times a day.

For this, Hand Wash includes an alarm function, and the user can select the “Reminders” button to add or modify the times when they will be reminded to wash their hands. This number will correspond to the goal in the application panel.

According to the WHO, a correct hand washing should last at least 20 seconds. To ensure the correct time, the app marks 25 seconds, that is, 5 seconds to apply the soap or soap, and another 20 to rub. The app allows users to touch and slide the clock between the alarm and the start of hand washing to start the counter. In addition to tactile feedback, there is also the possibility to see hand cleaning graphics.

Since all Galaxy Watches are water resistant, there is no need to take the watch off to wash your hands. It is also possible to monitor how much time has passed since the last hand washing and how many times the practice has been done throughout the day. If there is a need for a wash outside the schedule, just touch the Wash Now button, and this deactivates the next alarm.

Samsung also released a tutorial on how to wash your hands properly. Check it out below:
