I'm finding that my watch 6 classic takes up to 10 minutes to start recording my heart rate. This is not due to it being too loose, too tight or my wrist being too cold. 

It's annoying as I can't monitor my heart for first part of my spin class. After 5 to 10 minutes it starts and is then OK for rest of session.

Anyone else see this or know what I can do?

@blenky: This is likely to be due to having Automatic Workout Detection enabled, which will start to measure your stats after 10 minutes of activity. To avoid this, manually start your workout in the Samsung Health app, or head to the Samsung Health app > Heart rate > Settings > Measure continuously. I hope this helps.

No, that's not the issue. I have the heart rate monitor as continuous, and when i do a spin class this I start 'Bike Indoor' from the health app. I don't rely on workout detection.
