To predict the start date of the next menstruation, people rely on temperature measurement, as basal body temperature (BBT) varies according to the menstrual phase. BBT should be measured immediately after waking up and before any physical activity or interaction with surroundings. To obtain accurate basal body temperature readings it is necessary to measure it first thing in the morning, a process which can be impractical and which can sometimes be forgotten. Samsung’s new feature automates this process, making it easier and more convenient.
