I am using 42mm galaxy watch. Previously swimming tracker seems to work correctly like length strokes and laps but now its not working. It stopped tracking activity and i dont know why, when i start swimming tracker it start waterlock mode but not tracking any activity.
thanks for your feedback.
after the latest software update , the watch is very inconsistant in the pool.
only starts counting after the 12 th lap (saying 12 lenghts).
then stops counting after 56 lengths.
even if I swam 120 ...
I'll bring it to the samsung store in Brussels tomorrow with the details of this forum.
as swim.com is working perfectly , it's unbelieveble Samsung doesn't fix this faster.
I started this thread and wanted to give an update.
Last week I was in the pool and the watched worked-at first. But then it gave me THREE ADDITIONAL LAPS. I was like, no, I didn't do 17, I did 14.
So we'll see.
After 4 weeks of using the Swim.com app instead of Samsung Health it seems to be 99% accurate (counted 2 extra lengths once over 64 total).
Think I’ll stick with it over Samsung Health.
On a different matter after yet another Samsung Health Update the Manual Heart Rate, Floor Counting and Alti-Barometer have all stopped working. Along with the step count going haywire, counting 2000 steps whilst sat watching tv.....
If if it isn’t one problem it’s another... 🙄
The sim.com apps is a stand alone app that I use instead of theSamsung Health App.
It works more or less the same and can report on intervals, lengths, timings, average for 200 mtrs, etc.
The only thing Is is when swimming it lists metres swam instead of lengths but you soon get used to it.
For me it still struggles with type of stroke but I think that’s more to do with me crappy technique than the app 😀
The app is free so could be worth giving it a try.
Logged/downloaded swim.com on all devices. There's a nice article on why (I believe) I've been seeing inaccuracies, now that the watch is logging my swims: https://support.swim.com/hc/en-us/articles/360032952772-How-Does-the-Swim-com-App-Analyze-My-Swims-

I have the galaxy sport watch. Been working great for past few years. Then a few days ago. It stopped recording my swim data. It used to record:
How long I had been swimming
How many lengths I had done
Now it is just recording how long I have swum for and says 40kcals but.... ( whitch is wrong)
Can I reset this somehow to correct it as it was?
Or is this the sign of hardware failure?
I got my Galaxy watch last year early April and it has been absolutely perfect , up until today. The swimming tracking has stopped since I updated the wearable app on my phone due to the Spotify app not working. If it's not one thing, it's another. Does anyone have a fix for the swimming tracker ? I have tried all above methods and none work.
