    Exclamation Oxygen saturation sensor

    I'm just wandering with all what's going on wolrdwide with Coronavirus, why Samsung does not bring back SpO2 control on his phones/watches via s-health..
    Sensors are already there and they where working till a few months ago, so it should not really be a big problem.
    Would be a very useful feature to have right now.
    I don't konw how to submit a request directly to Samsung, if somebody knows please pass me the info.

    In my Note 10 + galaxy watch active 2 combo s-health shows only stress level, no SpO2
    I had it in my old S7.

    Hi there

    Ask Samsung directly in your Samsung Members app

    Well, for one, it would require putting utility ahead of profit. Removing it from the phones was probably an attempt to boost sales of watches as feeder devices. Glad I still have my S6 !!!!!

    But the problem is they removed it from S-Health! (How can you see it from your S6 BTW?)
    I have a watch that measures Stress (what serves me stress monitoring I don't know).
    To measure this so called stress they combine BPM and SpO2 measurements. I just want to be able to read the SpO2 measurements!

    After the fact .....

    H'mmm ............

    After all possible updates stopped, I did root the two S6 phones I still have, which blocks future automatic updates from Samsung, and make the necessary adjustment in build.prop to allow S-Health to launch. One of them finds the O2 sensor in "Stress" under Samsung Health. It began life in Hong Kong (9200). The other one still shows O2 saturation as a separate item. It began life in the EU (920F). Why the difference ? Who knows.?? NOTE:; rooting and related activities are unsupported on this site, for good reasons, so if you see this post, you are proceeding at your own risk into a potentially dark place. The risks often outweigh the potential rewards if one does not know what they are doing. Proceed with caution. XDA is (over)loaded with relevant information (as well as a lot of junk). Good Luck.
