I just got a Watch 4 classic and almost everything works fine. It tracks my sleep and oxygen levels while sleeping, but the snore detection is not working.
I have my phone plugged in and it is on a flat surface near my head. My watch knows I am sleeping, so why doesn't the snore detection work? I tried changing permissions, turned them all on for a couple nights even, but still it doesn't work.
How close to my head does my phone need to be? Does it matter if it is a few inches lower than my head? Do I have to be facing it all night? Does the room need to be silent? Any suggestions on getting snore detection to work would be appreciated. Thanks!
edit: I plug in my phone and put it near my head when I sleep. I have it set to check for snoring every night. It works sometimes. One night I had tons of recordings, one night only 1, but mostly it is 0 because it doesn't work. I think it has something to do with where the phone is, how close to my head it is, because my watch/phone records my sleep just fine; if it knows I am asleep, it should be checking for snoring.
Anyway, I am giving up on this. I know I snore and it should work and has worked, but it's unreliable. I'm just glad the oxygen levels record while sleeping, that's more important than snoring.
I have it on and set to always. It still isn't working.
I'm having exactly the same issue (did not test the blood oxygen while sleeping though, I have it disabled). The snore detection is not working and tried many things (Samsung health is enabled). I'm using a non Samsung phone though, don't know if that is a limitation.
I have a Samsung Note 10 and it's not working, though.
I have the same issue here and I am using a Samsung S21 Ultra. Tried for a few nights but it did not work😥
Have the same as I also read on other fora: it only works for one cycle, then stops.
