I'd like to turn off the heart rate monitor on my Samsung Galaxy Watch Active during exercise to save battery - does anyone know how to do this? I switched it via the heart rate app to manual measurement, but it still starts tracking my heart rate when I'm running.
Thanks, that's a shame. Are there any other tips for improving battery performance during exercise? I bought the watch because I'll be running my first marathon in the new year, and it was close to running out of battery when I ran a half-marathon a few weeks ago. I'm not bothered about my heart rate, hence why I thought to switch this off, I only want the GPS, pace tracking and music.
Hi, this was what I tried to start with ("I switched it via the heart rate app to manual measurement, but it still starts tracking my heart rate when I'm running") and it still starts tracking when I select an exercise. Would be helpful to know if this is a bug so I can send it back to the manufacturer
