Monitoring Your Heart Rate Using Your Samsung Gear S2

Measure your heart rate with the heart rate monitor sensor located on the back of your Gear S2. Record heart rate levels before, during, and after exercise. Heart rate information is stored in the S Health application.

• The Heart Rate features are intended for leisure, well-being, and fitness purposes only and are not intended for medical use.
• Before using these features, read the instructions carefully.

Heart Rate Widget

  1. From the Watch screen, rotate the bezel to the right until you reach the Heart Rate widget.

    You can also access the heart rate monitor via S Health.

                                          

                                                 

  2. Touch the screen to start the heart rate monitor.

                                                                         

                                                         

  3. The built-in sensor on the back of the device detects your heart rate.

    If the monitor has trouble reading your heart rate, clean the sensor on the back of the Gear S2. Attach the device snugly to the topside or underside of your wrist—not against the wristbone.

                                                                    

                                                      

Your history is stored in the S Health application on your Gear S2 and on your mobile device (if S Health is installed on your mobile device). Rotate the bezel to the right and then touch Heart rate to view your history.

For Best Results

To measure your heart rate more accurately with the Gear S2:

  1. Wear the Gear S2 firmly around your lower arm, just above the wrist. Do not fasten the Gear S2 too tightly or too loosely. If you have thin wrists, wearing the Gear S2 too loosely may cause light to reflect unevenly and result in an inaccurate measurement.

                                             

  2. Be seated and relaxed, and stay still while taking resting heart rate measurements. Do not talk, yawn, or change your breathing, as these behaviors may skew your results.

                                                

  3. Smoking or consuming alcohol before taking measurements may cause your heart rate to be different than it is normally.

                                                

  4. If the heart rate sensor on the back of the Gear S2 is dirty, wipe the sensor with a clean, soft cloth. Body hair, dirt, and other obstructions can interfere with the operation of the sensor.
