Hi there. 

I have a Galaxy Watch 6.  I'm trying to find the V02 max setting, notification - in fact anything, to do with recording, viewing and nothing. It's not showing up anywhere.

I was on the treadmill for 4.8k this morning for 40 mins straight, go in Samsung Health and nothing. Not a mention of it. I can't find a single setting on the phone, in the app, that even mentions V02 max. 

This is very poorly designed and implemented. I mean, does the GW6 even have VO2 max setting?

Can someone tell me how to access the settings at least so I can see what's going on. Thank you very much.

Hi @SpencerK , I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble finding the VO2 Max feature on your Samsung Galaxy Watch 6. Here are a few steps you can try:

  1. Check Your Workout Screen Settings: Go to Settings -> Workout Screen -> Data Screen 1 (DS1). Make sure DS1 is enabled (switch is to the right - blue = enabled). Then, select a layout with multiple data cells. Scroll down, long press on the VO2 Max cell, and toggle Percent VO2 Max to enable .

  2. Ensure Proper Conditions for VO2 Max Measurement: For VO2 Max to work, you must run for at least 10 minutes on a flat path at a speed of at least 4km per hour, all while maintaining a good GPS signal .

I hope it will help. Good luck! 😊

Hello and thank you for the reply. Sorry, but where are these settings. I cannot find them on the watch or on Samsung Health. In the settings on the watch, I see the normal, profile, connections mode etc..  On the Health App, I just see the Configuration settings for the watch.

Thanks for your help.

OK, found it now. I did a test run, then ended the run, and found the settings button from there. Turned DS1 on and off, then the VO2 information appeared on the watch, hit send to phone - then for the first time, a running tab appeared at the top of the list in the Health App.

 

Thanks for your assistance!

Hey, would you mind explaining where did you get the settings? I have the same problem trying to find the "DS1" thing to turn on. Thanks!
