    I'm interested in this topic too. I had to download a new Fitness for Gear app, and the Neo syncs with it, but I cannot get the Neo to sync with the S Health app that's native to the Note 3. The "share via" menu option that's supposed to enable this function is dark and not selectable. Grrrr!

    I've noticed that there are share buttons throughout the watches OS but none of them work. I wonder if it's poorly mapped or it just hasn't been implemented yet.

    The Fitness For Gear app is kinda a bridge. It helps you to sync all fitness info to your device. Then sync it to your S-Health app.

    So, S Health and Fitness with Gear dont sync, and button share with in Gear 2 Neo is not available to push, any idea?

    I'm confused too with how the older S-Health app integrates with the newer Fitness With Gear app.

    As near as I can tell, they are completely unaware of each other, despite sharing the same Samsung user account.

    S-Health, being the older app, seems to only work with the phone's step counter and the original Galaxy Gear watch. Of those two things, there is language in the app detailing how it will use the greater step count of the two for logging after they sync.

    The Fitness With Gear app seems specific to only the newer Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit watches.

    I don't get it either. I cannot share my fitness results to s health as the share button is grayed out. Maybe we need s health 3.0? Definitely makes no sense on why we need Fitness for Gear and S health..will the other phones get s health 3.0?

    I have discovered the source of my confusion. In s health, when viewing the pedometer, touch the 3 dots in the upper right and select 'phone data to view', it then lets you select the phone's measurement or the transferred data from the neo. Previously, on the s4 with a gear 1 the data was merged. Now its kept separate and selectable. If select the data from the neo, thats what appearas on the lock screen and startup screen when you open s health.

    I'm using a note 3 and do not have that option. I have a sneaker with 2 linked circles that brings me to the galaxy gear menu and tells me to update gear manager. Do you have a S5?

    Same here. Total mess up by Samsung. Add to that all the Apps demonstrated at the launch events are not yet available i.e. Runtastic, MapMyrun, Evernote... Where are they?

    Found this on the S-Health page on Samsungs website - in small print at the bottom of the screen!

    "As of April 2014, these S Health features are only available on the Galaxy S5.
    Soon they will also be available on other devices, via app updates."

    Can you post the web address where you saw that statement from Samsung about future update?

    I found this page informative for some health tracking details:

    I found a solution. Install the S5 S-health and health services apk. I don't know if posting the link goes against the rules but a quick Google search will work.

    Did you install the healthservices.apk on a note 3? When I try to open it I get an error that it could not parse the package.

    Did this really work for you? I tried a few days ago and could not get it to work. In fact, it broke all syncing.

    It worked but all the stats from my gear to the S health app were not accurate. Back to square one I guess.

    I have an S4 and am having the same problems. S Health says it is paired with the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo but refuses to sync with it. Says I have to update Gear Manager but I have the latest update

    I've called Samsung 6 times and live chatted with them once. Not one time did they admit that s health simply won't work correctly with anything but the S5. It's been over a month and the Note 3 and S4 still can not be totally integrated like the S5 with S Health.

    What we have here is a DIRTY marketing ploy to sell more S5s.

    No it doesn't - the gear fitness app is a scaled down version of S Health and does not integrate with it. At this time, the only phone that seems to be able to sync with the Gear Fit and S Health is the S5 - I have been round and round with Samsung support on Facebook who don't have a clue what their own devices can do. I have a Note 3 - so I am stuck until they update S Health for my phone to version 3, which is what is on the Samsung S5.
