Is a female health/period tracker going to be added at any point, I can't even find one that is compatible. Anyone know of any?

Hi @Starseer

 

We’ve had an update from our Research and Development Team regarding the female health tracker. We can confirm that this is something we're looking into and we’d like to implement in the future, though as for now this feature will not be availble any time soon. We appreciate your suggestion though, do keep them coming! :smiling-face:

Yes, I have irregular period, really hope that female health tracking can be brought in REALLY soon. Thank you.

I don't need to track for fertility for I have had tubes tied, but need to track cause haven't had a cycle due to having been on birth control so long, and to watch for signs of early menopause.

What is the status on a period tracker in the Samsung Health App?

Hello Samsung,

I just bought my Samgung Galaxy watch last week. Not an easy decision to move from fitbit charge 2 which i loved... but HR sensor died and I did not want to purchase charge 3... so here I am with my new galaxy watch. it's simply beautiful. But I spent 2 hours trying to figure out where the hell is female health tracker... not even thinking about  that it does not exist... I just simply can not believe it... did not check it before purchase as was sure this would be in ... we are in 2019 hello ... wake up. This is the most important health tracker of any woman. after reading back on all answers from you for THE PAST YEAR!!! I simply think you just give s*** for women in general. I'm just so dissappointed... have no words.

Technically I love the product, but app just sucks. It's outdated, basic graphic, not interesting at all. I'm sorry I can not track the data in fitbit app...

I 1000% agree with DobraVila. The same exact thing happened to me except I had the Fitbit Alta HR previously. It's sad Samsung can't compete with Fitbit on an APP....even after being called out for the last year.

Are there only male users of the actve watch ? Or only male engineers.... This is ridiculus. Luckily I havent bought the watch yet.

I completely agree. Samsung cannot even come close to fitbit until they up their App game and female health tracker. Surely someone in R & D is listening to their female colleagues or perhaps even their girlfriends?? It seems like this should be an easy fix. Come on guys.

It's been a year now since my original post and it's extremely disappointing that there  still hasn't been a period tracker added despite the fact that there are now several pages of requests. 

 

The question now isn't when but why exactly hasn't one been added?

 

I can track pretty much everything else in the app, even my caffeine consumption as pointed out by an earlier poster, it's long overdue and would be a very welcome addition....and it doesn't even have to be pink!

Just moved over to Samsung from Apple and I am gobsmacked that there is no female health tracker on the health app! A year of Samsung saying they are "looking in to it" but still nothing. I don't care how much water I drink in the day, I just want an idea when my period is due! Any update when this might happen?

I have switched to a samsung galaxy watch from fitbit as well and am now totally disappointed by the app lacking a period tracker. How is this even possible at this day and age?

We are in 2020 and Samsung still doesnt have a widget to track the menstrual cycle. Years behind other providers. I think i will change my watch due to this. Is very important to track our health, completely ignoring menstrual health is a sign of misoginy and patriarchy on the company. Big dissapointment, so much is being developed but this keeps to be overlooked.

Could not have said that better.
I'm going back to my fitbit as samsung is not even responding to us.
Literally taking a ***** on us.

Well it’s now 2020 (more than a year since this post) and there is still no solution. I don’t believe Samsung are doing anything. I’ve emailed them directly and received no reply. My “half the price”  previous fitness watch was more useful!

Hi all!

 

Just a quick update on this from our R&D team, who have just given us the following information:

 

"We've received some news regarding this suggestion. The developers claim that the feauture for women to help them track their menstrual cycle will probably be implemented this year".

 

No further info at this stage but we'll keep you updated just as soon as we have any further news.

HAHAHAHAHA.... i'm loughing... like crazy...

If developers would be serious with this intention your message would say it will be in with next update.

No kidding anymore and honestly I'm now writing to Fitbit for some time to please notch up the design 

so I can go back to them. Do not think that women are stupid... and should not be treated as such.
