This feature locking to galaxy phones is unacceptable and monopolistic behavior. This makes me never want to buy Samsung again. I am very upset now that I purchased this watch. Who knows what other features on other devices (TV's, appliances, laptops, tablets, phones, watches, etc) they will lock to only Samsung products. Please fix this ASAP and allow this on all android phones. If not I fear your brand will suffer major customer backlash for this.
EKG won't work on non-Samsung phones. So madright now.
New Samsung Galaxy Watch3 user (former Fitbit, Mac head with no Apple Watch [six different models, still stuck at 18 hours max battery time]), bought device in time for new ECG feature.
Unfortunately, it needs an app named "Samsung Health Monitor" (not "Samsung Health"), but I can't find it anywhere on the Galaxy app for IOS or within the watch's Galaxy Store (there was an update yesterday for the Watch3/Tizen OS software, but that didn't seem to be related to the Samsung Health Monitor app).
Any other users, Mac heads or not, that may have a solution?. Thanks in advance.
All I have to say on this is Samsung has now stepped into the territory as a garbage company. Watch 2 active buyers have been waiting for this feature for A YEAR and now it's be locked to Samsungs devices like this after promising it so long.
This a clear power move for the eco system to become like Apple, well sorry, I won't bite, my last Samsung device I will ever buy and I regret it.
