Samsung Health snore detection not working with Watch 4 classic and Galaxy Note 10

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.

You need to go into the Samsung health app on your phone and turn on snore detection you can have it always on or just toggle it when you want to use it .It works really good you can listen to your snoring in the Samsung health app in the sleep stages I could not believe I snored for 3 hours and I sound terrible lol 🤣

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.

Mine worked straight away my phone is on the table next to my bed not near my head and I have a fan on and it still works as you can hear the fan when you listen back to your snoring

Have the same as I also read on other fora: it only works for one cycle, then stops.

There is a brand new update to the watch 4 software released today and hopefully this resolves the issue.
