Hey Samsung, kindly look in to this feature update, I have same issue with the watch. Workouts can be added on phone but those workouts won't be seen in watch thereafter.
I have found Samsung not to care about what customer needs!! So many people are having various issues but Samsung are just ignoring them! Not impressed with customer care, I must be honest
I bought Galaxy Active2 watch few weeks ago. I can't believe that I can't use it for sports like cross-country skiing, kayaking etc. Samsung, please add all sports profile from mobile S Health to smart watch S Health.
I completely agree and hope someone from the Samsung team will not only "read & skip" but also do something about this, as it's actually a deal-breaker...
Not having this function is something that will spread around and those who want the watch for it's sports function will notice this.
I just purchased the Active 2 and will be returning immediately! I am a muay thai style kickboxer and I am not going to have my phone on me to track a workout.😒 Even Fitbit allowed me to start a kickboxing or martial arts exercise from my watch. Get with the program Samsung!
Just want to add my voice to this. It is ridiculous that the phone and watch do not have the same options when it comes to exercise type. My main exercise is boxing, and I cannot record it on my watch to get heart rate etc. The only option is "Other Workout" which records far less calories burned than boxing.
I was unable to transfer the badminton activity widget to my Watch Active 2 (44mm) from the S Health app. I purchased the galaxy fit 2 for a fraction of the cost and was able to transfer the badminton widget to the fit 2. I used it and it tracked my activity duration, HR with a chart, reported my ave HR and Max HR. Counted my steps, estimated calories burned, all reported back to, and recorded in S Health. Actually quite nicely.
This should be able to work on the Galaxy watch Actives also.
Hoping to find a work around I then tried running the badminton widget directly from my Galaxy phone SHealth app while connected to the Galaxy Watach Active 2 thinking it would capture the same data but it didnt. It only reported the duration and estimated the calories burned. No HR information, no steps counted. Very frustrating.
