Please provide an option for Galaxy Watch 5 Pro to disable the heart rate sensor during physical activities.

The heart rate sensor is always active during hiking, and this drains the battery faster.

Please check.

Hey @Omid Gharaee 

You can disable the automatic option by heading into the Settings on your Watch5 > Samsung Health > Hear rate > Select 'Manual'.

By enabling this option, the heart rate sensor is still active during physical activities. This option only disables general monitoring, not specifically for sports activities.

There is no option to turn it off during activities, as it is the primary source of data for many other functions, such as calories burnt etc

Please Samsung allow user to disable the heart rate monitor during activities. It will save battery and it will avoid collecting useless inaccurate data.
