I'm new to the community and have a question about my Galaxy Watch (SM-R800). Does anyone know if it is possible to disable the 3 second countdown timer when I have selected an exercise? I would find it more useful to be able to start the time of the exercise on the watch manually to coincide when I start my exercise on a cross-trainer etc.

@Galaxy27: Are you enabling the workouts manually? If not, please open the Samsung Health app > Rotate the bezel clockwise to access the tracker screen > Select 'Workout' and choose your exercise type > Set any targets, then tap the Play button on the right side of the screen to manually start the tracker. Does the countdown occur after following these steps?

Thank-you for your reply. I have followed the instructions you posted but unfortunately report that the countdown timer is still active with this method of selecting / starting an exercise.
