Samsung Health app does not connect to Virgin Pulse app

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I'm unable to connect Samsung Health app to Virgin Pulse app due to errors(please see photo attachments)  I've tried allowing permissions in the Samsung Health app, reinstalled both apps, rebooted my phone, but it just doesn't connect with an error.  This pretty much makes my Galaxy Watch Active useless as it can only use Samsung Health.  I'm currently having to use Google Fit alternatively but I have to have the phone in my pocket all the time for counting stepsScreenshot_20190831-052311_Samsung Health.jpgScreenshot_20190831-052316_Virgin Pulse.jpgScreenshot_20190831-052333_Package installer.jpg

 

My phone:

Galaxy S10 Plus(SM-G975U1)

Build number: G975U1UES2ASGF

Android version 9

Android security patch level: Aug 1, 2019

Developer mode fixed the problem.  Thanks!  I wish this solution would be moved to the beginning of the discussion so people could find it quickly.

I am having the same issues. I talked to Samsung support and made sure everything was turned on/rebooted. It still did not work. Samsung Support suggested that I call Virgin pulse. I will be calling them shortly to see what can be done to fix this.

This issue happened to me in the middle of the day, 8/29/2019.  I called Samsung support today and they told me there was not much they could do.  I see exactly the same screens as posted above.  I have a Galaxy S10+.  My wife has a Galaxy Note 9 and hers exhibits the same behavior.  Sounds like this may be a Virgin Pulse problem.

I would agree except Samsung health is also failing to connect to my fitness pal as well as virgin pulse. 

 

Uninstalling and reinstalling all apps has been fruitless and all permissions have otherwise been granted. 

 

 

Removing features to streamline the product was bad. This is worse.

I'm  having the same issue. I got a notification when I re downloaded the app that it is virgin pulse having  the problem with connectivity and hope to have it resolved soon..... so, there's that.  Until it's fixed I just manually  enter my steps and workouts on the app.

Samsung botched the permissions.  Turning on developer mode for S health will fix it. 

 

  • Open S-Health App.
  • Go to Settings (Menu)
  • In bottom of the screen you will find: About S-Health, Tap on it.
  • Now About S-Health Screen will open, and then tap 10 times on the version continuously.
  • Now you will see Developer mode on the version line (where you tap 10 times).
