    Default S Health for Samsung Galaxy S5

    Hi, i have been having trouble with getting my samsung s health app to stay on whilst i am exercising, i have a road bike and i use the app to track where i have been etc and watch my pace on the screen.

    However after a while it just locks the screen and goes black!!! i have tried using the screen lock function that is on the app and this doesn't stop the screen from going black, i have also been into settings on the phone and changed it to other lengths of time but there doesn't seem to be an option for never which is frustrating. Obviously i want the phone to stay on whilst i ride my bike so i can track my pace etc but at the minute i cannot do that, the phone doesn't go off when looking at it option wont work either as i have to look at the road ahead.

    Is there a way to keep the screen from locking whilst i am on the app or an alternative i could use?

    Here is one possible solution.

    Install MacroDroid and create a macro that does the following:


    Trigger> Application Launched
    Select > Health (or whatever it is called)
    Action > Keep Device Awake ( I have not tried this yet but that says to me keep the screen unlocked )
    ..............There is also an Action Option to force Screen ON )
    ..............There is also an Action Option to force Screen Timeout to "Never"



    I personally use MacroDroid for a different purpose.
    For me, it turns the internet off when screen locked, and back on when screen unlocked.

    MacroDroid is extremely versatile and powerful. I am fully convinced you can resolve your problem with this app.

    I just stuck the screen on longest time out which is 10 minutes, all i had to do was tap the screen every so often whilst riding the bike and it stayed on so i will just stick to do this for the time being, thanks though.
