When I open the Samsung Health app on my phone, I can select rowing (outdoors) as a workout. If I go into that exercise (still on phone app), it even shows my Galaxy Watch (42mm) as an accessory that is connected.
But when I try to select that activity as a workout directly on my watch (so that I don't need to have my phone with me on the water), it doesn't show up. Just about every other exercise that appears in the phone Samsung Health app can be accessed on my watch, but not that one. (I do have Rowing Machine, but that has no GPS functions for obvious reasons, so isn't useful to me).
Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or if just that activity is not a feature on the watch for whatever reason?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the quick reply! Unfortunately I'm not trying to enable "Rowing Machine" on my watch. I'm trying to enable "Rowing", which is an additional exercise that's available on the Samsung Health app on my phone and allows for GPS tracking and maping.
Rowing (NOT rowing machine) shows up on my phone, but not my watch. Rowing MACHINE shows up on both.
What is happening with this? I want to start aqua aerobics on my watch, but I cannot because it's not there. I obviously don't take my phone into the pool with me, so what are the options??
Same here!! I don't have a work out that consists only of, say, push-ups, I don't need this on my watch. But I am missing aerobics, boxing, martial arts etc. Like... trainings, not exercises!
I am also waiting for this. Would like to do rock climbing on watch, while it is currently only available on phone.
Also not sure how phone is supposed to even close to accuratly determine elevation climbed. Watch is the one with the barameter and phone only has GPS which is unreliable for elevation.
I'm adding my voice to the crowd. Please, make the watch experience full. Of course there is always the possibility of selecting 'other workout' on the watch and then editing it on the mobile, but I'm not sure the calories get recalculated. Plus, it is extra clicks. We don't like extra clicks
