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.
Late to the party here, but I turn sleep mode on every night and mine intermittently will record. Most of the time I get no data.
You are absolutely correct! The Samsung Health app only detects snoring if you set it to once.
If you choose always, it doesn't work!
Geez, it's May, 2022; you think they would have fixed it by now!
Mine has been detecting snoring reliably all the time since 3 updates ago even when set to always detect. So make sure you have the most recent update.
Mine just updated a few days ago, but still won't work correctly unless set to "once". I just don't get it... This thing is so random for different owners.
My first watch 4 was defective and I had to send it back for a replacement. The face was rotated a few degrees counterclockwise. That watch worked reliably every night when set to always.
Maybe it does have something to do with the watch itself and not just the app.
Very frustrating to say the least.
Make sure your phone is charging, otherwise it will work only once. Samsung does not want to drain your battery while you sleep...
My phone is definitely charging and on bedtime mode when using snore detection.
I have to charge the phone every night. It is a brand new S22 Ultra. The battery life is horrible as compared to my S21 Ultra that I traded in on Samsung.com.
You should b able to make this choice yourself. I do not use the alarm on my phone. I don't care if the battery dies overnight. I care about leaving my phone on the charger for hours at a time when it only needs 30 minutes to charge. This is bad for the battery.
