Yes, totally agree, playing squash, skiing, ski touring, windsurfing, sailing, rock climbing, dancing etc. All of these activities are available in Samsung Health mobile app, but none of these is available in the Galaxy watches. Even the newest Galaxy Watch 3 misses this basic function. It’s sad because such a great smartwatch cannot be used by a lot of activities for normal tracking. It has GPS, HRM, moreover a built-in barometer as well – all these information should be just recorded, and nothing else, no need for any difficult or complex development, no need for any new algorithm. Samsung please, make all the activities already exist in Samsung Health mobile app available in your watches, too.
Can't wait for a fix for this issue. I have the same problem with tennis. It's only available on phone and not on watch. If we're performing an activity while wearing the watch, it makes sense that it should be available on the watch.
I also really hope they solve this issue. I would really like having skiing and aerobic on the watch. And cant see the use of all the exercises like push ups and armcurl having separate workouts...
They are doing nothing. It is obviously designed by people who have never gone outdoors and done any physical sports. In my opinion it should be called Samsung Stupid watch. Two options exists - either one writes off the expense and buys something else...any other option will track the sports we are talking about. Or we raise a stink in open social media, in the hope that someone sensible will see it and get it fixed!
I have the same problem. I can't find inline skating on my watch3 even though I have it on my phone as favorite. It's disappointing and I might consider to move to the other brand if support for inline skating will not be fixed.
