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?

Hello,

 

Has this problem been figured out yet? I also have more then 2 workouts that I would like to add to my watch, and not have to pick up my phone. 

 

Sincerely, Val.

Same here for Martial Arts.

I tested and the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 works fine for Muay Thai. I am also considering trying an Apple Watch Series 5. I think that Samsung just wants to sell ignoring the customer's needs.

Wow this has been going on for so long with no resolution! Maybe we all need to start a new thread for the Samsung guys to actually take notice....who's in?

I am in. Been asking for this feature for 4 years. Hard to believe this one feature is never mentioned in any of the reviews. Always gets mentioned in Apple, Garmin or Fitbit reviews.

Yes, I am in. But it seems Samsung just dont care a hoot. I've asked many questions, nothing! Seriously thinking of Apple for my next change.

I'm in too. The problem is that they just ignore the messages so I don't think a new thread will tease them to solve the issue. I'm already thinking about getting a smart watch of another brand. Which ones do you know that have such feature? Thanks!

Samsung needs to fix this.

I am having the same issue with Tennis. I starred it as a favorite on my phone, but it doesn't show up on my watch as a favorite or in the list of workouts at all. I would love so see a fix for this issue as well. Love the watch otherwise.
