Using the old version of Samsung Health is a good workaround for me, as I do not actually use Samsung Health for any fitness related tracking or analysis anyway. It is just a means for getting my content from the Galaxy Watch to RunKeeper (where i have almost ten years of fitness data). I would certainly give version 6 of Samsung Health a shot, if I could still synchronize my data. But, since I cannot, I will continue to keep version 5.17 on my Galaxy S9+.
Let me be the first to say
You b*****. Seriously. You'r lame!
Taking away functionality then hiding behind an obscure EULA is BS!
I wish I knew this before I bought this Samsung watch. I would have bought something else that was not purposefully gimped to send data and content only to your affiliates.
Very disappointed! 😡
This is extremely annoying. When buying my Gear S3, about a year and a half ago, the only thing I checked was if it would work with Runkeeper, which I have been using since 2011.
Even more infuriating was Samsung's response to my inquiries, after Runkeeper stopped syncing (for me it was around July). Their representative refused answering my direct question, whether they have dropped Runkeeper support.
Great way to lose costumers, Samsung!
I asked Samsung why synced data between Health and Strava gives different values. Response: we are going to drop Strava support too.
So no sync with anyone anymore...
Great way to lose customers!
I was about to buy a Galaxy Watch but without the option to sync my runs to Runkeeper, as I am doing it with various devices since years, I will not buy one and have to look for something else...
