    Very temperamental... frustrating at times. I so want this to work. The area where you enter your own data is fine - eg how many glasses of water, sleep, food etc. But the pulse, oxygenation reader makes me give this app 2* as it takes ages to make a reading. I mean, trying for 30+mins - does that sound OK to you? And then it still doesn't do a reading. I don't know how many times I've read 'check that your figure is on the sensor'..... it definitely doesn't do well if your extremities are cold.

    monitor app First, why the ads when I've already paid for the watch. Second, the app stopped showing me how many flights of stairs. And now, it hasn't given me any insight on sleep. I doubt this app could be any less functional. I can't wait till I get enough money to buy another fitbit. Updated: latest update does not give any new features, just locks you out of your health data unless you agree to new terms of service. Give less and take more is Samsung's new motto

    app In response to the developer: Optimal experience is still ZERO reason to need access to contacts & phone calls. In this age of endless hacks, no one else sees it today, but tomorrow is a different story. So my work around for now, was to grant permission to get back into the app and then revoke permission. Might be time to look around for a new fitness app.

    monitor I enjoyed this app at the beginning when I started using it. However when they changed it and added two step verification I decided not to use it anymore. The app wants to much access to my phone and that is a not happening. The app does not need access to make calls to track my weight loss. If I can't delete this app from my phone I will definitely be blocking all access now.

    login Used this app for years and loved it, would have give 5 stars. Even have the watch. Now after last upgrade it wants to manage phone calls and have access to my contacts. I can't open the app unless I give that permission to all of the options. Extremely disappointed. It feels like you have crossed a line with the requested permission requirements.

    watch For a workout app that has been around for 6 years, you'd think something as basic and essential as user-defined max heart rate was implemented. The 220 minus your age thing is not valid for the majority of people. Until this is fixed, get a workout app that takes itself and its users seriously. Also, stay away from any Samsung peripheral like watches, as you'll have the same issue there unless you use a third party app, for which support is very lacking on Tizen.

    care discount Loved it until recent update. I cannot use it anymore as I have denied access to my calls. I see no reason why it should have access. Would have given no stars if that was an option. I have not just installed it I have been using it for over a year withot issues and it now will not run without additional permissions. Your response does not make sense.

    monitor app download The new update renders this app completely useless. It's like being held hostage. It won't work at all unless you give it total access to your contacts, which is a huge invasion of privacy. The Together workout challenges won't work unless you connect to all your contacts. I don't want that! It's feels like a virus, phishing malware, and a Trojan horse all rolled into one! I loved it. Now I hate it and am dumping it.

    apk Been using this app for over 2 years now and finally deciding to call it quits and delete it. The app used to be simple and worked nicely but with recent updates, it now blocks you from using it and viewing your own data unless you allow permissions like letting the app make phone calls (which I don't want to) and make a samsung account (you weren't required to make an account before). Wish it would go back to the way it was before...

    monitor apk Was good until the recent update which now asks for permission to access my contacts & calls. If you don't grant it access to your contacts it won't let you access global challenges anymore - there's absolutely no need for Samsung to be able to access my contacts' personal details for that feature. This is nothing short of an invasion of privacy.

    The app has changed so much in recent mths with updates that it is now no longer a health tracker! I can't see how I will benefit from the new layout as it is nowhere near encouraging, it just frustrates me, certain platforms have been removed which has made the layout much harder to read and understand. The watch is fab but that is all it is now a smart watch that you can make and recieve call & text on. Change it back to how it was! Please!

    You used to be able to track your stress and you blood oxygen levels, now you cant. I read many of the other concerns with needing access to contacts as well as microphone. You have definitely killed this app. Don't give me a generic apology like you have everyone else. I will be looking to buy and use a fitbit I'm the next couple of months, the Samsung watches now are useless. Very sad for Samsung, I know you will loose lots of business from this.

    Pretty decent, although despite turning off all power saving features, the interval notifications stop playing when the screen is off (except when on charger) on Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android 8.0). Edit: As the developer noted, the permission to manage and make phone calls is only used if one uses the "Together" feature - however, I can't get into the app if I don't grant that permission. I'd prefer it if the app just didn't let me use that feature if I denied permission.

    I've used this app for many years and track steps, sleep, calories, and water intake, and join the step challenges. But with this update I block access to phone as a matter of principle. It is sad, because I will miss using the app. I would give it 5 star otherwise, and with this update I'm so upset that I want to give it 1 star, but figure I will rate it in the middle.

    Took me two days of messing with this app to get it to work again. Having to go just shy of a complete reset. I still think the new permissions (contacts, phone, camera) are overreaching for a health app. I find it creepy samsung wants all my contacts and has "marketing" checked by default. Also while the help desk person was friendly and tried to help this time, they sadly weren't much help at all.

    I absolutely would have given this app a five stars 6mo ago. I switched my phone & the app no longer works. I was kind waiting for an update that made it work. Still had a Galaxy and Samsung The app itself it doesn't record anything except steps. It doesn't read for heart rate blood O² and stress. It did. Now it doesn't do what it was designed for. I've even upgraded my phone to a 21+ in Jan. Still waiting for an upgrade to make it work.

    This is a really good app for tracking food, exercise and over all health. The only thing I would add to it, is the option to take a picture of ingredients on foods and supplements that are not listed in the search bar. This would allow more accurate meals and supplements added as well as adding more foods and supplements to the search options for every user.

    So I'd been using the app for several years and was generally happy with it. Now it is asking to for permission to make a receive calls which is unacceptable for a health app. I see a lot of Samsung responses to reviews saying that they only use the info to make the app better. If you actually read their privacy policy you find that they can give the information to pretty much whoever they like and for whatever reason. That's pretty much expected from apps today, but having a PR response trying to suggest otherwise pushed me over into writing this review.

    I love this app but it shouldn't need access to make phone calls or access my phone app. There is nothing in the updated privacy notice about this permission and when I pull up the information for this permission, it's vague. Just another thing for this app to run in the background. Its the only health app I use so I guess I'll be looking for another...

    Update: I had a problem with logging in due to verification codes never actually reaching my phone despite several attempts during the day. After mentioning the issue, customer service were able to send me an email with steps to follow through, afterwhich I was able to log in. Kudos for the fairy immediate service! Now, in terms of utilization, the app is amazing! It has several features, my favourite of which are the challenges where you can have virtual runs and races with your friends.

    Used to work fine. The app is now intentionally broken by Samsung with the latest update unless you give it an unnecessary amount of permission to steal your private data. Honestly, why does a fitness app need to collect personal data on who speak to on the phone? Talked to customer service, and they tried to give some BS excuses, but no answer as to why they are collecting this data, and no way to disable it. We are just supposed to trust them. Dont install the latest update. It is SPYWARE!

    Since the last update it's useless, it forces 2FA and makes you log in, then you can choose to not activate it and makes you log in again only to give you de error "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED". If you try sending an email good luck because you can't submit it and the FAQ doesn't address this. Update: as I said before, I can't send an email through the app, I press submit and nothing happens

    I love this app. Only problem I have is that workouts on fitness apps doesn't synchronize like it does on the Google Fit app. Or if you could atleast add a General workout under the excercise section where I can just insert time and the calories burned; it takes too much time selecting push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, etc and inserting all workout information individually. Please find a solution for this, I really enjoy this app.

    The functions and features are good, sleep/exercise/food etc and all generally work well. The sleep tracking appears to work but there's a distinct lack of detail about how much of each type of sleep you should be getting. The integration with other services however is surprisingly straightforward. My main issue is that the app recently updated to now make phone permissions mandatory. No idea why and the description on the store says optional. Plus their fo tact email isn't for contacting them.

    Great app; been using for about 2.5 years straight. The UI is super easy to understand and generally the app runs well. One thing I'd like to see is the weight management tile come back. That REALLY helped keep me on track. Another function I wish the app could have is scanning food barcodes like MyFitnessPal; with that function, I'd be able to just use Samsung Health exclusively.

    I really enjoyed this app until the latest update requiring additional, unreasonable permissions like access to phone and contacts. Since I can't access the app now w/o allowing the new permissions, which I will never allow, it's basically useless and will be uninstalled as soon as I finish this review. Nice job developers! Watch the one star review bar grow! More importantly, my Samsung Active 2 watch also just became far less useful without this app, so I'll be looking for a different brand.

    It's ridiculous to be presented with a choice to allow or deny a permission but to only allow access if the 'correct' option is selected. I understand this allows for use of certain features in the app and I have no concern that you are stealing information. So fine, disable those features until I decide to use them and grant permission. You do not need access to my phone calls to count my steps and log my walks when I do not participate globally/together and dont want 2 factor verification.

    After the new update, I'm no longer able to log in. It forces me to set up two step verification, which I do and then it gives me an error code. Whoever coded this totally messed up because you get an error when you select the "not now" option for the two step verification AND you get an error code when you do set up two step verification. So now I'm logged out of my account and can't access it regardless of what option I choose. Hire better coders please.

    The health app works well. Easy to use. But, to get the full potential from the app you must have a samsung phone with the samsung watch. Have a samsung watch 3 and am disappointed that the ecg feature - key reason I purchased - does not work because I have a different brand phone. Samsung, it's time to release the ecg feature to all users. This is a major feature with that watch.

    App required me to sign in again for 2 step authentication, which for personal fitness for me, is totally over the top. I should be able to choose whether to use it, regardless the app would not open so reinstalled. It's just lost all of my workout data, except the last month. All of it. Follow up: Your response doesn't help me at all.

BUT... now after many years you want access to my camera, contacts, turn off and on my bluetooth, access phone calls in and out, etc.!!!!....NO NEED FOR SUCH AN INVASION OF PRIVACY!!!

    No possibility to sync steps between other apps and Samsung health. On the other hand Samsung allowes cheating and letting people have 1.5 million steps in 15 days. Very disappointing. EDIT: This application just become even worse (yes, that is also possible), not only missing support for synchronizing steps, but now it asks promission to make phone calls. Why application for tracking sport need to call someone? For that I use phone app, not health app. What will be next?

Even if it stays within the app which I doubt, I think we are due more detailed explanation of why this kind of access is specifically required now. Lame, I will not use until they update to remove this permission I have been waiting for an excuse to stop using this app and use a pro excercise app anyways, goodbye Samsung bloatware.

    I have used this app for several years, I can no longer use it because I won't give it permission to control my phone calls. Why in the world does a health app need to control my phone calls? Giving a 1 star, it was required to leave a review. Looks like it's time to find a new health app..😁 Edit- Dear Samsung, just because you're saying it's not being used, doesn't mean I believe it. I will not be using your app as long as it requires permission to control my phone calls! Sorry, not sorry!

    Ads ads and more ads. Now requiring two-factor which is enabled via SMS which means no limited protection if at all. And of course it's faulty. Had to let the code expire to generate a new one before it was accepted. No new features. No new functions. Just making it harder to use.

    Permissions required: none. "To use this feature, you need to allow permissions in settings." Um...those two things don't go together. The latest update essentially bricks the app unless calls permission is enabled and therefore by extention renders any samsung smart watch useless. Fix it! P.S. Don't reply with 'you can contact us via the Contact Us Menu: Samsung Health > Settings > Contact Us.', I can't contact you, I can't access the app!

    New update will not function unless you give it access to calls. Fix this Samsung. Response to developer update- The user experience is not optimal since I can't use the app without granting access, which it did not previously need. That means the user experience is non existent - zero. Fix the app so we are not required to grant permissions to features users do not wish to use.

    A fitness app doesn't need access to my phone to make or record calls to track the things that it does. There is no clear explanation anywhere on why and the replies to the reviews aren't answers but to call a number to get answers. Where people will need to sit on the phone for a long time to get to someone to read a sentence or two of nothing that doesn't explain anything.

    After the update with 2fa request, it is impossible to open the app, 2fa token can't be validated, and without 2fa a strange error. Horrible experience. update: could not open the app, so contact us menu was not an option. I live in Europe. But after trying several times, again and again, finally the validate 2fa token was no longer grayed out. Please add a support link on the 2fa page and make it more robust.

    I like the app, but starting on March 12, 2021 my sleep isn't tracking from my Galaxy watch anymore. I now have to look at my watch to see when I slept and manually enter it into my phone. It still tracks everything else from my watch (heart rate, exercise, etc) just not sleep. I called the number you provided on other posts, but nothing we did helped. I would really like my sleep to communicate to my phone again. I find this feature very useful. *Update* on 4/8/2021 seems to have fixed issue 😊

    Unless they rollback the update it so people can use it without allowing access to calls and contacts that app is very invasive. I don't know what features and optimal experience they are implementing that needs access to calls. Regardless a user should have the option to use the app without those "optimizations" and protect their privacy. The "my way or the highway" approach of this app is disturbing and feels like blackmail. Everyone needs show them how unacceptable this is by uninstalling!

    Used for ages. Now Samsung wants to demand ridiculous and invasive permissions. Access ALL files and phone, ummm no. Plus, my watch is now pretty much useless. Why do you need to spy on your customers? It's creepy. Your explanation is absurd. If it was in any way sufficient, there would not have been additional complaints. You don't need access to our phone or files to track meals, weight or exercise. This is overreach.

    My latest feedback is that I will give 1 star instead of 2 as I did before. Why a health application refuses to open unless I give permission to the app to.manage my phone calls? My feedback in March 2020 said that some features got lost. If we look the pattern, this app over time is losing features and starts to dominate device asking definitely unneeded access and makes significant load to the device (Xiaomi). Now, my Galaxy watch becomes absolute. Was that point of Samsung?

    This app is now GARBAGE. It updated itself, and I couldn't use the app at all w/o setting up 2F authentication - no customer notice, no recourse to set it up later. Supposedly to protect my data. 2FA is horribly buggy so it would not recognise the Sms code, I had to go around in circles for 2 HOURS on my phone and computer! Whoever is heading this apps development, FIRE them now. I will never buy Samsung ever again. You ruined one of the few Samsung apps I was actually using everyday.

    This WAS a great app, until Samsung decided they need more access to your privacy. Too many proprietary apps want to much control, this will be a big mistake and Samsung users will suffer first, then Samsung will lose more customers. If major electronics corporations can't figure out people do not want them intruding in every aspect their lives, I guess the day Samsung stocks tanks for invasion of privacy, they will know why.

    I really love this app. I've been using it for years and it's my favourite all in one health app and I have to commend the developers for that. However I'm giving it a 3 star rating in hopes one of my complaints is heard. EVERY SINGLE time I use the new fitness program features. The workout stops midway or bugs out or my Galaxy watch active disconnects and I'd love for that to be patched as I have a rewards program on my medical aid and the inconsistent data tracking doesn't help.

    It was a decent app until it asked for more permissions especially making calls and looking through your contacts. Time to say goodbye to the bloatware on this phone. Developer says, "implementing and providing an optimal experience" yet they do not answer why it's necessary to have permissions to your calls and contacts.

    There's absolutely ZERO reason this app needs to make and answer calls, ZERO. So I will not be using this anymore, I'll find something trustworthy! To be honest, you owe all these good people who asked about needing these permissions; when there really isn't need for it, a REAL answer, a REAL reason besides your cookie cutter response, or a generic explanation of "to access all features". No one should have to call a stupid number, maybe you should put in the description EXACTLY why. Fix it!!

Food tracker was the best on the market, with a nutritional score which was genius and so effective in improving food habits. Why it was dropped and changed to below basic food tracker? Make it paid for and improve , why remove something so advanced ?Very disappointed and now looking for a new all in app

It would be nice if there were more sexual health options available. For instance, I'd like to be able to mark when I have had sex. There are likely LGBTQ health initiatives that could be included. Also, syncing up with a mental health app would be cool.

Does not allow me to acces the app unless it is setup and the setup does not complete as the verify button is disable after entering the code. Please have this fixed at the earliest. I can contact you via the app if it opens. It does not allow me to do anything apart from accepting the terms and enable 2FA. If I go back, it closes the app. Please let me know what are the other options to contact you?

    There is no need for access to make calls. This is a fitness app not a phone calling app. This permission is not necessary and opens opportunities for security risks. Was a good app but good features were slowly being eroded. The developers cannot give any good reason on why it needs access to make calls especially when other apps that do the same do not need it. If this is not changed I will have no option but to uninstall and delete all my data with Samsung.

I appreciate the reply but some people got more then 1000 steps per hour 24 out of 24 dosen't raise a problem?

Keeps spinning when trying to access account with no 2FA, and with 2FA, I get the code and enter it, but the verify button won't proceed. I don't want to use 2FA as it makes your account less secure as it is too easy for someone to hack you by porting your phone number. If not sorted soon I will delete my Samsung account, as the data is Not yours to demand how I access it.

    This was a good app however rating now downgraded as it will no longer be used due to it now expecting access to phone calls. I've only ever used it to monitor the occasional walks and my sleep patterns. What a shame as this now makes my Samsung watch rather redundant too.

    Hi, I can't access the app today. I requires me to sign in into Samsung account after agreeing to the new privacy note, but there is no place to sign in... Shall I uninstall it and install again? Also, it's totally incomprehensible why the app needs access to my calls? Some other questions: - why doesn't the list of workouts in the app and in the watch (Samsung Gear Fit) match? E.g. there's no crosscountry skiing in the watch. - why doesn't app calculate steps etc. in a non-Samsung phone?

    Everything was pretty ok till this update. My sleep tracker is bugging with recording time, can't insert it manually, can't record it from my Fit 2, can't press OK on app's predicted sleeping time... I mean what's going on with the things that worked just normally, whay do you have to ruin it with every update?

    Too many ads. A banner telling me that I can save up to $700 on a trade-in on a new phone is in fact, an ad. The description of the app confirms that there are ads "placed by the developer" The latest update requires phone permissions?! Why does this app require this?

    Previously neutral experience, new update (as others have noted) forces 2 Factor Authentication. Forcing this is not a good step at all. Further, forcing approval of managing contacts and ability to make calls? No, thank you. Will be uninstalling this app after this review.

    Permission Creep - now won't start without phone permission. I don't use, nor wish to ever use the "feature" Samsung allegedly requires this for. I just want to see my own data...not share it. While Samsung may have totally honorable intentions...hacking and breaches are all over the news. Better to not enable permissions needlessly. Let the user decide what feature/risk profile is right for them.

    I have used this app for years but I don't want to give the app phone permission. It was never required before so I don't see why it is suddenly necessary for me to grant phone permission to even open the app. I don't intend to use whatever feature you need the phone call permission for so why should i be required to grant that permission. I will be uninstalling this unless you either take that permission out or make it so I can still use the rest of the app without granting phone permission.

    I used this app to track calories, sleep, and caffeine. After an update lost the caffeine tracker and got ads. Now the app wants to manage my calls when it was working decently before. New permissions means it is gathering more info it really doesn't need.

    I used to love this app, it had everything I needed in an easy to access app. Now you are enforcing 2 step verification, I can't access the app without setting it up "to protect my health data". Yeah because someone needs to hack my data to find out that I'm fat, they can't tell that just by looking at me. I refuse to set up 2 step verification on this app and you can shove it where the sun doesn't shine until you remove this forced feature. Why???

    New update won't let me open the app without allowing phone call permissions, which are not actually a required permission as per product details. The only way to contact the developer is through the app, which I can't do because it won't open until I allow the permissions which are not required.

Cya remove Update: now you have made changes to your agreement, no long says accept or deny phone calls. But when you dig deeper it does say something about phone and contacts.

Why does this app get more annoying and less user friendly with every update. It's not even a choice either it forces you to use it. Then when you do it, it says you need to change your password THEN it logs you out and says your credentials are wrong, and doesn't let you log in again! Yikes.

How can someone have completed 200,000 steps in one day and have it say they haven't had any steps today and it's only day 1? Edit: the claim that measures are in place to curb cheating is a fallacy. Dropped another star for blatant dishonesty.
