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?

Adding my voice to this very obvious request. I nearly said 'feature request' but it is actually a bug as far as I am concerned.

 

The most important functionality to add is a consistent list of activities between the phone and watch.

 

Secondly, there are other activities that we'd like  added to the list - in my case it's tai chi.

 

Please Samsung, at least get the first sorted asap.

Still no solution nearly a year later...

I hate to say this but this has been going on since Samsung came out with wareables.  I had original GearFit and last year bought the Galaxy Watch.  They are the only company that I am aware of that does not allow adding exercises from phone to watch.  Makes absolutely no sense at this point in the wearable market.  Truly unfortunate because they have nice wearables.  The unfortunate part is that no reviews that I have read mentioned this.  The only way you discover it is after purchase.  I just do not see them changing in the near future as long as people keep buying them and reviewers do not mention the fact that you cannont change or add any exerecises to the watch.

It is pretty sad that they don't do anything software wise. Software looks it is 10 years old, and probably is, I always remember it this way. No new features are added, they do not listen to clients, it seems stuck in time even if the hardware is ok. Was not expecting this from samsung

This is ridiculous. Why isn't this solved??? Please let there be syn between workouts in phone + galaxy active

It is a pity that even after so many reactions here on the forum, there is no statement from Samsung as to whether or when any adjustments could be made.

Completely agree, will pass on to Samsung, again!

I join to this request. This was the reason to get a galaxy watch to sync with S health. And now it seems it is useless...

Want to chime in that I want Aerobics and Dancing added to watch. This should be totally customizable. Please add to ticket.
