Samsung Health
Introduction
Samsung Health records and manages your 24-hour activity and sleep pattern to cultivate a
healthy habit. When connecting your Galaxy Watch Active to your mobile devices, you can
save and manage the health-related data on the Samsung Health app.
When the automatic exercise recognition feature is activated after you exercise for more than
10 minutes while wearing the Galaxy Watch Active, it will display an encouraging message.
When the Galaxy Watch Active recognises inactivity for more than one hour, it will notify you
and show you some stretching motions to follow. When your Galaxy Watch Active recognises
you are driving, it may not display an encouraging message or stretches.
Tap
(Samsung Health) on the Apps screen.
• Samsung Health features are intended only for leisure, well-being, and fitness
purposes. They are not intended for medical use. Before using these features, read
the instructions carefully.
• Any information that is obtained from use of the Galaxy Watch Active or the Fit
Software or any application preloaded within may not be suitable, accurate,
complete or reliable.
58
Apps and features
Wearing the Galaxy Watch Active correctly
• When you activate the auto heart rate tracking feature, or when the Galaxy Watch Active
recognises your exercise, the Galaxy Watch Active will automatically track your heart
rate. When measuring your heart rate, wear the Galaxy Watch Active snugly on your arm
above your wrist as shown in the figure below.
• If you fasten the Galaxy Watch Active too tightly, the skin irritation may occur and if you
fasten it too loosely, friction may occur.
<Rear>
Heart rate sensor
• The accuracy of the heart rate sensor may be diminished depending on
measurement conditions and surroundings.
• Use the HR feature only for measuring your heart rate.
• Do not look directly at the heart rate sensor’s lights. Doing so may impair your
vision. Make sure children do not look directly at the lights.
• Cold ambient temperatures may affect your measurement; during winter or cold
weather, keep yourself warm when checking your heart rate.
59
Apps and features
• Smoking or consuming alcohol before taking measurements may cause your heart
rate to be different from your normal heart rate.
• Do not talk, yawn, or breathe deeply while taking heart rate measurements. Doing
so may cause your heart rate to be recorded inaccurately.
• Because the heart rate sensor uses light to approximate heart rate, its accuracy
may vary due to physical factors that affect light absorption and reflection, such as
blood circulation/blood pressure, skin condition and location and concentration of
blood vessels. In addition, if your heart rate is extremely high or low, measurements
may be inaccurate.
• Users with thin wrists may receive inaccurate heart rate measurements when
the device is loose, causing the light to be reflected unevenly. If heart rate
measurement is not working properly, adjust the position of the device’s heart rate
sensor to the right, left, up, or down on your wrist, or wear the device on your inner
arm so that the sensor is in contact with your skin.
• If the heart rate sensor is dirty, wipe the sensor and try again. Obstructions
between the device’s band and your wrist, such as body hair, dirt, or other objects
may prevent the light from reflecting evenly. Please make sure you remove such
obstructions before use.
• If your device becomes hot to the touch, please remove it until it cools. Exposing
skin to a hot surface of the device for a long time may cause skin burn.
