I have the same problem.

Been using my Galaxy Watch 46mm for swim tracking 3 times a week for the last 9 months.

2 weeks ago it stopped tracking mid session and hasn't worked since.

Try soft reboot, hard reboot and factory reset twice.

Can anyone at Samsung help ?

A quick update on the Swim Tracking issue that I’ve been having.


Finally but the bullet and took the watch to the Samsung Service Centre (Manchester) expecting the old water damage excuse.


They Re-Flashed the software on the watch before booking in for repair.


Just  got back from the pool and the watch is finally Tracking again.  The accuracy is still a bit out but think that’s down to my lack of technique 😀


If you have a Samsung Service Centre locally then I’d recommend taking it to them for a Re-Flash.


Hopefully that will help with the problems that we are all having.  Fingers crossed...

But how do you set the swim settings? That's our issue, where do you set the switch settings after latest update??
