Workout in Samsung Health on phone, but can't find on Galaxy Watch?

Hi all-

 

When I open the Samsung Health app on my phone, I can select rowing (outdoors) as a workout. If I go into that exercise (still on phone app), it even shows my Galaxy Watch (42mm) as an accessory that is connected.

 

But when I try to select that activity as a workout directly on my watch (so that I don't need to have my phone with me on the water), it doesn't show up. Just about every other exercise that appears in the phone Samsung Health app can be accessed on my watch, but not that one. (I do have Rowing Machine, but that has no GPS functions for obvious reasons, so isn't useful to me). 

 

Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or if just that activity is not a feature on the watch for whatever reason?

This problem is not 'solved.' I got my watch 3 weeks ago and I love it except for the fact that I can't add cross country skiing, Nordic Track/ski machine or even a custom workout. That is a serious flaw and will keep me from recommending it to friends. Very disappointed that I can't add my most-often workout.

My be stupid question, is some difference between sport aktivity whitch Is directly defined in watch and the possibility to start 'other sport' and after this in the phone app add the right sport after??

If you select "other workout" on your watch and then go for a cross country ski, it won't track your distance, pace, elevation etc.. it will only track heart rate. I've also tried selecting "run" from my watch since it tracks the same data, but it won't let you edit a "run" to any other workout.

You are right, I think only about heart rate and time. No other function. Sorry.

By my racket sports I don't expect any other function.

Just wondering when this will be resolved? I am wondering why there are options for workouts on the app but not on the fitness watch?? I would like to add boxing and dancing but not an option on the watch. pretty irittating as these are things I do weekly. It's almost as if it's no point to the watch if I can't track my main fitness things on it.

Still not fixed. Not sure there will ever be a resolution.

I absolutely agree. I would like boxing to be added. It seems ridiculous that you can select this on the phone app but not the watch

Why has this not been fixed yet?
