    Default Galaxy S5 Hart rate Monitor

    Ok I was chuffed about this as I have a Hart issue
    So I followed what it said then Nothing kept telling me to make sure my finger was over the middle
    after a lot of attempts with different fingers I got a reading
    I thought there may of been a issue so I tried my son's finger who is 12 and bingo worked every time
    His fingers are a lot smaller then mine
    but I must add its spot on, and surprised the hart nurses
    if this worked on all fingers then there would be a lot of medical staff using this

    Well I must say that mine works every time except when I was using a cover on the phone.....So the question is: are placing your finger in a vertical position ? and are you using any kind of cover that keeps your finger from getting all the way down to the sensor ?

    Mine works fine with both my cases. I place my finger vertically and horizontally

    You've got to make sure it's the very center of the TIP of your finger that's against the sensor. It feels slightly unnatural at first but it works every time. I too have a heart condition and I use the sensor probably 10 times per day without failure.

    Also make sure you aren't pressing too hard! It can't take a reading if you do. I often use mine before and after a workout and I find that I have to hold the phone in my left hand to steady it and then use my right index finger to take the reading.
