Workout app not working

New Member

When using the galaxy watch "arm curls" part of the workout app - this no longer detects arm movement. However the rest of the watch works fine, ie step count and display coming on when I move my arm to view it. The arm curls worked fine a few days ago. Any suggestions? I've tried over exaggerating movement but it still doesn't detect it.

I'm having the same problem,  in ARM CURL recording it states "get into position to start" but doesn't register arm movements.

The gyroscope seems a bit hit and miss on a few other items also e.g when doing hourly stretch exercises.

Can you help Samsung?

Ok so figured this out....

When you select ARM CURL  exercise it goes into "get into position to start next step" 

If you leave it there for sometime eventually it starts the rep count. 

You do the 10 reps and it returns to;

"get into position to start next step" for another few minutes and starts again. 

I DONT KNOW WHY THERE IS A DELAY SAMSUNG?

Also the gyroscope isn't great at picking up the reps, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't!

All in all it's very disappointing.

I am having the same problem with my Galaxy Watch. Software is up to date. This is a new issue as I have had great results up until yesterday.
