Do you actually use the heart rate sensor?

Now, don't hate me because my daily is an LG G4, but I've got an interesting question to ask.

Do you use the HRM on the back of your S6? If so, how many times and for what? S Health? Camera?

(Also, not sure if you guys know this, but from what I've heard, the camera on the S6 utilizes the HRM in order to calibrate white balance, working in exactly the same way as the color spectrum sensor on the G4. Works pretty well from my experience.)

Nope, hardly ever do I use it...maybe once a month. I much preferred the method of my smart watch or band checking every so often, especially with working out as I don't carry my phone.

I use the heart rate sensor everyday to check my rate while I'm walking at a constant pace and up some big hills. It seems to work fairly accurately. I use the S Health spp to take my measurement.

I did for a while on twice a day basis but now I don't really bother with it. Since it's been 90+° @ 90+% humidity last 2 months almost now, I've quit running.
