 For all who suffer from Watch 4 and 5 series not reading heart rate and giving notifications on your watch if you have tattoos, This solution works 100%. Attach one of these to back of sensor and all issues solved. It raises the watch from tattooed skin but can read through the transparent disc

Sensors have been touted as a possible fix for Tattoo issues with Smart Watches for a little while, not sure the Random Twitter user is a sage.

The evidence  (as far as has been covered) would suggest that this is not full proof though may well help many , a look at various options in this article but none pf them likely to be 100% effective.https://www.theverge.com/23567992/wearable-tech-tattoos-fitness-tracking-how-to 

Cannot test myself though as do not have tattoos.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Do you have to remove the sticker to charge it?

A Samsung tech just lied to me about this problem then immediately reversed the answer and directly confirmed that tattoos are an issue.

I had the same issue, they couldn't grasp the idea, or when I asked if it's being looked at in the late July update (I read about that it was) they said they didn't know and basically you can hope.

That is not good enough. I've just got this watch and if I have to chance it working with some stickers I have to replace everytime I charge it, that isnt a fix. It's a stop gap, but not a fix.

Its so annoying as it fails to wake on raising and if you do the members app diagnostics it just says not detected and all my measurements and reading arev WAY off. It HAS to be fixed.

Hello, unfortunately yes... someone else's galaxy watch 4 apparently burned out, not entirely sure if it's true but it's better not to take chances, better to put a new sticker on every day
