Few days ago I've noticed that my watch is randomly tracking swim during the day... Even I'm doing different things. This night I've noticed that's happening during the sleep also. When I've checked the exercise autotracking history I had multiple swim sessions covering whole duration of my sleep - as per attached screenshot.
This is causing 2 major issues:
- exercise tracking is useless... As the results are faked by the fake swim sessions,
- battery is drained quicker.
It started happening just few days ago, before everything was fine. Not sure if any SW upgrade caused it. My Watch detailed are:
- model: SM-R800,
- tinzen very: 126.96.36.199,
- SW ver: R800XXU1DSL1.
Does anyone encounter the same issue? How to solve it?

Hi, yes, I do have the exact same issue. Unfortenately I did not find your post through search function before opening this one: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/Wearables/Galaxy-Smartwatch-automatically-reports-swimming-exers...

Yes, I have exactly the same issue, which started yesterday. I went onto the Health app on my phone to delete those exercise sessions, but it's starting to get annoying. Every time I'm just sitting down, not moving at all.

Same problem started yesterday and now constantly goes into swim mode even if on charger. I see a lot of comments starting to stack up would be nice if Samsung could start answering.

Just started getting the same random swimming activity a week ago on my SM-R800. I wondered if it was an update gone wrong as I hardly even get my watch wet and it's only a bit over a year old! A couple of times wasn't that big an issue but now it's starting to drive me crazy. It was perfect before this :(. I hope they do something about it.
