Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app, but some of its bugs make it unusable
I just wanna say I do not hate this app whatsoever I love this app very much and I’ve been using it for a couple of months now. I use it primarily to track my eating habits and to track my cycling and mountain biking progress. I normally go on biking trips for up to two hours and track from start to finish. recently when I finish my trip and I look back on my progress the app crashes and all of my progress is gone. this is extremely disappointing. i’ve also recently encountered a glitch where when I add my food The nutrition score stays at zero and does not rise. and that’s not because I eat non-nutritious food, my eating habits havent changed much and it used to actually show a score a couple of months back. I would totally give you guys a five star review with these two issues can be addressed and fixed. this app is incredible and it is help me lose weight in the past but these recent issues make this app unusable.

Missing the running coach metrics
I have loved the Samsung Health app on my Samsung phone paired to my Samsung smartwatch. Recently I switched to an iPhone but kept my Samsung watch and still use the Samsung Health app for my workouts. A few questions/issues I have come across since I switched phones though. 1) After I record a run on my watch, there is no longer a way I can view my running metrics like symmetry, stiffness, air time, etc. Is that a function that is not available though the iOS version of Samsung Health? 2) On a bike ride with my Samsung phone and watch, I used to get the audio coach to my Bluetooth headphones (non Samsung or Apple) every mile. The coach still comes across my watch speaker but no longer through my headphones. Do I have a wrong setting or is that not supported? The headphones will receive music and phone calls like they did with the all Samsung setup. 3) Lastly, on my Samsung device I was able to pair MyFitnessPal (MFP) app to the Samsung Health app. It would allow me to record my weight in MFP and record workouts on Samsung Health. Then all of my steps and workouts would show up in MFP from my Samsung Health activities. Now I can’t seem to figure out a way for the two apps to talk on my Apple device. Is that feature unavailable? Thanks for your time and thanks for making an overall great app.

Hello there! we are sorry for any inconvenience. The Samsung Health app in iOS is still relatively new compared to its Android counterpart. We will implement more features and functions as we go along. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Thank you.
Much improved, but still buggy
The app largely does what you want from a health tracker, though the interface isn't entirely intuitive. You can view and enter data from selecting in the goals display or by clicking on a tracker item added to the grid. What I don't understand is why those take you to different interfaces for the same data. It's like the developers couldn't decide on an approach so they gave us both, but both are incomplete without the other view.
Syncing is much improved with the latest version of the software, plus a firmware update on my G3 watch. Biggest problem for me is a date/time bug which affects entering "dinner" details. Looks like it doesn't correctly account for your local timezone (I'm on EDT) so entries will disappear for today and show up instead for tomorrow. Sometimes it doesn't happen immediately, so you briefly see the totals you expect only to have them change. Super frustrating as it seems there's no good way for the user to correct it and force the date, and you can't delete the data for tomorrow until, well tomorrow. I've even seen it happen trying to correct data for the previous day despite having the date and time explicitly set.
