    Is anyone else experiencing the heart rate light coming on whenever the device is in your pocket or pressed against something that is not your finger? Even putting a pillow case against it is enough to make it come on. I've even tried slowly lifting my device up and I can see the red light as I pick it up...Maybe I never noticed before but every time I put in my pocket red light shines through...battery died fairly quick today and I want to say that's the culprit.

    Known issue with Google Fit and Samsung Heart Rate Monitor. Just uninstall Google Fit or disable it and the issue goes away.

    Is this after 5.0.1 update that this issue shows up? Like I said, I never recall seeing that light ever before and my battery always lasted all day. Guess I'll uninstall Google Fit then not that great anyway.

    edit:
    Just so there is no mystery that was the cause. Uninstalling Google fit is the solution.

    I was just going to looking into this, as I noticed this was going on and when I wear my phone on my hip or put it in my pocket or even on its back, the sensor stays on. I just changed batteries and reset my phone and it seems to have gone away. But if it comes back and remains an issue, I will do as you guys mentioned and rid of google fit... #bummer

    It is probably just checking that you are not an android. It seems to get over it when it sees you are human and quits searching after a day or so. Or so I have seen.

    lol

    Yup, it's a Lollipop issue. It wasn't there before.

    So did anyone look at your pocket and ask "Are you happy to see me?"

    lol

    I believe AT&T released 5.0.1 just to get it out, without regard for bugs commonly experienced with that version. That version has known issues that, along with 5.0.2, supposedly have been addressed with 5.1. Hopefully, my carrier, TMO, has delayed release in order to release 5.1. Notice I said "hopefully."

    It requires restart after uninstalling fit to resolve the problem.

    You don't have to uninstall fit, just turn off the activity detection in settings, then restart the phone.
