Customisable Run/Interval Training

Hi,

 

I am using the Galaxy Watch (linked to my Galaxy S8). I do lots of different types of runs with just my watch and would like to set up customised training sessions.

 

Most information i have found directs you to use either the dedicated workout schedule programs OR use the pace-setter option under the workouts. However, I've found neither to be customisable enough to set up the training im after. The pace-setter is still limiting to what you can set.

 

As an example, I would like to set up interval training as:

- Run 400m 

- 75 second rest

(repeat the above 8 times)

 

My friends using other brand watches can set these customisable runs before we go, I've found I have to watch the distance and time and keep hitting the manual lap. Am i missing something or is this not possible currently in S Health?

 

EDIT: Alternatively, is it possible to create our own programs and add them to S Health?

I am looking for the same option. Unfortunately, it's not available on SGA2. I tried to find app to download but can't find anything that would be as simple as setting up training pattern, such as 10 min run 2 min rest for 5 times. How difficult is it? I am thinking to buy Garmin instead.

I agree. It's not too far off 2 months and still no reply from Samsung. Hopefully we get something soon.

This is a pretty big deal. I look forward to whatever the solution here is. 

I would love to get a Galaxy Active 2, but the one thing holding me back is the inability to make your own intervals on the watch. It's a big deal!  I'd like to plan my run (e.g. Sprint 400m, jog 1mi...) then just get on the road and let my watch do the coaching. 

Currently I'm using a Garmin Vivoactive Music. It's inferior in every way to the Active 2... EXCEPT that I can create custom run and cardio intervals. I'm sticking with my inferior watch because it's actually superior in the ONE area it actually counts: customisable workout intervals. 

You're too good for this, Samsung. Get this feature now! Or get seamless integration with a developer who can.

I just got mine today and find myself here.  This is embarrassing that they can't come up with such a simple functionality.

Same here. I would love to have the customisable intervals. This is one thing i miss in the watch, if samsung is still not providing the functionality then its time for us to switch to Garmin.

me too. 

Has anybody already tested  the custom app Interval Sport Timer? I hate to pay for something that should be of course on a sportwatch...

Quite annoying. This should be a basic function on every sports app. I hope this will be fixed very soon.
