Jumping rope workout on phone but not on watch

Hello, the jumping rope workout is available on the s health app on the phone but not available in the list of workouts on the samsung galaxy watch active. Can this be added on the watch so that we can be able to start the workout directly on the watch and therefore track heart rate data.

Hi all,

 

The developers have got back to us to say that they have no current plans to add the jumping rope workout to Samsung Health on the watch. 😞 Their reasoning appears to be to keep the watch as simple to use as possible, with only the basic and most popular workouts on it.

Hey @Kaol, thanks for the feedback! I will make sure to pass this on to the developers team and should we have any news about this, it will be posted on any of the Samsung social news pages :thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:.

I have this same issue as well as others that may be related. The workout order won't update the on the watch when edited from the phone when edites. When trying to open the watch app from the Galaxy Wearable app, the text "check your watch" appears, but nothing happens on the watch.  This functionality works with other apps,  however. It seems as though a new version of the phone app got created,  yet not the watch app making the two incompatible. Anyone else having these issues?

That doesnt make any sense at all. Jumping rope is one of the most popular and effective workouts to do. Basis for Crossfitters, all types of fighters, calistenics, general conditioning. Seriously.. could take leg raises out because you have leg extentions. Or stretching because yoga. Really any of the low heartrate exercises.
