    I just updated my gs5 to lollipop 5.0 ( stock sprint) and noticed that whenever I put the phone on a table with the screen on the red heart rate light starts. Also it appears that the proximity sensor on the back is constantly on too ( if my finger goes near it, it turns on). In addition the heart rate process is using a lot of battery.

    Is there any way to turn this off or fix it??? I've done a hard and soft reset so far to no avail.

    Having the same issue on a Verizon gs5. Not seeing many mentions elsewhere on the Web.

    It's happening more frequently now than after the update. Quick fix is just to open S Health and measure heart rate, which resets the sensor.

    But it's a very annoying bug, and it'd be much harder to spot if I didn't have a clear case.

    Found a solution over at xda forums. Uninstalling Google Fit resolves the issue:

    Hmm I don't have Google fit.. It may be my android wear watch that's doing it then?
