    Default S Health

    So I started using the pedometer on my N3 this week. It's nice having a feature like that built into my phone. I just got my Gear Watch and it too has a pedometer. While some of the settings (weather, contacts) took a while to sync up I was wondering if the pedometer would as well. I've checked all the settings and for some reason I cannot get it to work. Anyone else out there trying this? Thanks in advance for your responses.

    I tested this out this morning when I walked my dogs. I started the pedometer from the Gear and stopped it when I got back. Then I went to that profile in the watch and synced it to the Note. It only took a few seconds so it seems to have worked just fine since I now see the exercise on the Note.

    After re-reading you post I'm not sure if you were expecting it to auto-sync. I had to go into the pedometer on the Gear, Menu, and then select Send to S-Health.

    I've tried that w/o success. Do I need to disable the pedometer on the phone? I'm wondering if they are conflicting somehow..

    I asked the same question earlier and got a reply that cleared things up.

    When you use the pedometer with the Gear Watch and sync to S Health on your phone, the steps are recorded under Exercise mate, not Walking mate.

    Walking mate only records steps taken by the phone itself, not the watch. People that dont have the watch can still record their steps with Walking mate.

    Kinda weird if you ask me.

    Does anyone use a heart rate monitor strap for the S health? Is this the compatible Timex strap? Flex Techâ„¢ Digital 2.4 Heart Rate Sensor | Global Timex
    Screenshot of the S health, compatibility menu View image: 2013 11 29 13 00 11
    More detailed data would have been nice :S I don't want to order a strap to find out that it's not working with my S4.
    Thanks!

    On the note 4, in s-health you go to the podometer main or start page, Upper right corner are three dots stacked. If you drop that down you will see selected devices, click on it, and you should be able to select your watch, or your phone to show on the face of the phone screen.

    Good luck hope this helps with your type phone as well.

    Hi - I have the Gear S watch and unfortunately have to load apps on the phone to use certain things. That aside, it's annoying to hear a notification on my phone, think that it's a text from a friend, and find out that it's only S Health. I keep getting notifs that read, "Tap here to unlock S Health and start using widgets..... blah, blah, blah."

    I've already created a profile and use S Health on the watch each day. How can I stop these stupid messages/top drop-down notifications from S Health on the phone??
