I have watch 5 and over the months I have noticed that my Vo2 max on Samsung health is decreasing every day when I brisk walk. It started off with vo2 max 42.7 now its 34.6. Anyone having this problem??

I also have the watch 5. Same problem,  same effect. 

I don't get it. There are no other changes to training sessions... or to other health data. Like heart rate, blood pressure or blood oxygenation.

Hi I have an S21 ultra and the problem I have is that the Vo2 max only reads now and then and never on my bike only walking.

Same problem. Watch 5. Brisk walking. Vo2 max has dropped from 40.2 to 37.1 over the months. Still in the good zone for my age, but gradually heading downwards.

Same problem. My resting heart rate is going down, but Vo2 rate has decreased over a number of weeks, and slipped into poor.

Not sure what is going on with this.  I'm in the best shape of my life and my score has gone from Excellent -> Fair.    Perhaps they changed the algorithm in one of the updates.   

I started running in 8/23 and had a vo2 max of 46 in my first few runs.  Now, I am up to running a 20 minute 5k and my vo2 max has DROPPED to 33.2 in 9/23 has stayed there.

They did change the algorithm. I just read an article where Samsung in collaboration with the University of Michigan revamped the VO2 max standards.

This collaboration took place in September 2023, so most likely you've noticed the decrease around this time.
