About the Advanced Fitness Tracking feature

Advanced Fitness Tracking

Samsung wearables recognise all kinds of indoor and outdoor exercises and are able to track your progress in detail. On some devices, you can design a workout that suits you by combining activities such as swimming, and running. Record and check your vital stats like maximum speed, distance covered, calories burned, and more. 

Automatic workout detection exercises:

Once you have engaged in an activity for more than ten minutes while wearing a Gear or Galaxy Watch device, it automatically recognises that you are exercising and records exercise information such as the exercise type, duration and calories burned. When you stop exercising for more than one minute, it will recognise the exercise as having been completed.

You can check the list of exercises which are supported by the automatic exercise recognition feature by tapping  Samsung Health → Settings → Workout detection → Activities to detect. The automatic exercise recognition feature measures the distance travelled and calories burnt using the acceleration sensor. The measurements may not be accurate depending on your manner of walking, exercise routines, and lifestyle.


Depending on the specific wearable device, the exercises that can be automatically detected are:

Elliptical Trainer

Rowing Machine
