How exact is measurements using the HR sensor of Galaxy S5?

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2018

Galaxy S5’s heart rate measurement feature taken by S Health cannot be used for clinical or medical diagnosis. While the measurement is being taken, you do not move or talk , and wait until S Health has completed the measurement before taking your finger off the sensor.

If the measurement is very different from the expected heart rate, rest for 30 minutes and then measure it again


Place your index finger on the sensor at the back of the device. Wait while the Galaxy S5 measures your heart rate. Your heart rate appears on the screen when the measurement is complete. Do not wear gloves or a bandage on your finger while taking heart rate measurements.
