so it is not just because samsung choose this, the FDA specifically stated that it would only approve it if it was limited to samsung phones. Not only that but for the first smart watch to receive Federal approval to perform it, it makes sense that they would limit it to thier phones anyways. Samsung makes some of the best phones and I have yet to find another android phone that is better.
and as for the fit bit version it is not fda approved so feel free to use that but it is not accurate and has lead to misdiagnosis.

Where did you hear that FDA limited this feature to Samsung phones only?

Ok, give us an FDA or a Samsung link that says that. If it's there, I sure haven't seen it.

I purchased the Watch Active 2 because it was supposed to be getting ECG detection.  When that didn't come and they promised it on the Watch 3, I upgraded.  And now I'm seeing that this is only if you're using a Galaxy phone?  That was never specified in the advertising for this feature.  There's no reason the app shouldn't work on my Pixel 4 XL.  I'd like my money back unless this is available for other phones now.  False advertising is frowned upon by the Texas AG.

agreed, pretty angry myself, it's the ENTIRE REASON I bought the watch 3 (I have a heart condition I want to monitor more closely) and I only use a Samsung phone now and then but I happened to be using one when I got the watch so I didn't know and didn't find out until after the return period was up. Pretty ticked.

100% agree. I ordered this especially for ECG and I have a Pixel 4 XL also. If Samsung doesn't rectify this, I will never buy another Samsung product whether it be a TV or whatever.
