Galaxy Watch Active Heart Rate issues

Hi there..

For the past week, after some reset on my galaxy active, my hear rate monitor isn't working properly. Don't work automatically and when I send manually goes like 85% of the process, flashes the green light on the back of the watch and keep track of my heart rate on the screen but tells me that wasn't able to measure my heart rate and to try again later.

Tried almost everything on my smartphone and on my watch regarding configuration but it keeps having this issue.

Some help?

 

Thanks

Have you tried to do a Factory reset on the watch? You can find all the steps to do this here: https://www.samsung.com/ca/support/mobile-devices/galaxy-watch-factory-reset-your-watch-sm-r800-sm-r...

I've already done restore but don't know if is the same as factory reset. Done that both on Phone and watch. Since then this problem started.

Also following this link the method for restoring is not working on active.. The message rebooting appears but after that restart normally

My bad! You can do this on the Galaxy Watch Active by following these steps:

 

On the Apps screen, tap (Settings) → General → Reset. Before performing the Factory Data Reset, remember to make backup copies of all important data stored in the Galaxy Watch
Active.

I've already done that twice on watch. Nothing still. Something else?

If the issue still there after a Reset and everything is up to date, I will encourage you to get this examined by one of our engineers to see what is causing the issue. Locate your closest one from here: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/service-centre/
