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.

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.

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.
