Old phone: Oneplus 6T
New phone: Oneplus 7 Pro
I have set up my Galaxy Watch with the new phone through the wearable app, and this works with no issues.
However when I try to sign in to Samsung Health app on the new phone after I enter my credentials, it just go in to the loading spinner screen and dosent move past that.
I have tried to clear cache and local data and uninstall/reinstall the app, but it dosent help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I actually managed to do it now. What I did was to start S Health without signing in, then go in to settings and sign in from there.
Apparently the skip button is gone in the new update, but there is a workaround where you download an older version as @AT15 has described here:
Thanks for this. Did it today and all worked. Perhaps admin could put this solution up as approved way of synching a Galaxy Watch to non-Samsung phone. Ta.
The issue is with the current version of Samsung Health App (6.15.0.091 - Jan 2021).
1. Download and install an older version.
2. This version (6.8.5.009 Jan 2020) worked for me: https://apkpure.com/samsung-health/com.sec.android.app.shealth/download/6085009-APK?from=versions%2F...
3. Sign in option is working on this previous version.
4. Once you sign in, and go past the page that loads forever, you are all set.
5. You can now even upgrade the app to the current version and it works fine.
Hope this helps.
Does anyone know if the Samsung health app is going to be fixed for non-samsung phones?
Am having the issue which appears to be widely reported for non-samsung phones, i.e. after inputting login details it just loads.
Advice from Support is clear cache etc which doesn't work.. and then call the Samsung Health support line which seems a bit stupid for the sake of a potential app issues.
A few people have said to download an old version of Samsung health.. but this doesn't feel like a long term fix.
Big big thanks for this solution. Since the last update I've just had an absolute nightmare with the Health app, not being able to log on to my Samsung account I followed your advice but used an earlier version. I had to reset my Active watch but not really a problem. I'll ensure I don't automatically upgrade the App from now on. I do wonder how much testing the App developers really undertake.
I downloaded the December version of Samsung health that I found online. This one had the skip button. Then I signed in once I was in the app. Once signed in, I went back to the app store to update with the new version and it worked. I spent hours trying to clear cache and reinstall the app but my problem was solved in 2 minutes with the download of the previous version. I think it is an .apk file format. Let me know if it works for you.
I am facing the same issue. I tried skipping the logon screen and go into the settings and try sign in. However it doesnt work.
Do note i am able to sign in using galaxy wear app. I am also able to back up my data. Not sure if its saving all my tracking information especially the historical trends.
By not signing in, i am unable to see my historical data ,sign into together etc. I keep getting a message "Something is wrong with the server. Please try again later.". Tried all options, like reinstalling the apps, reset my mobile. The issue is pertaining only on the mobile app.
I've had the exact same problem for two weeks. Did you find a solution? I've been emailing Samsung since then but I haven't gotten a concrete response from them. Nothing they've suggested me to try works. Is your phone a Oneplus by any chance?
Hi Louellen, Yes my phone is a one Plus 6. For me it's been over a month that I am unable to sign in. This is definitely a shealth bug that it can't sign in through the app and all features like shealth together , previous trends are are not usable at all . The samsung wear app allows me to sign in and backup settings but I am pretty sure my data on shealth is no longer getting synched . No help whatsoever from Samsung unfortunately 😞
