Just an idea I had as someone who actually does not use any of the Samsung Health features, yet still loves his Galaxy Watch Active 2 very much!

 

Why not an option to stop the watch from tracking everything; steps, heart rate, sleep, exc.

 

It would be a incredibly great battery saving adjustment I could make!

 

I know I can turn off the notifications, which I do.

But the watch is still using plenty of battery keeping track of it all still.

Thank you for reaching out. You can set the heart rate to monitor manually. Give this link a try to see how to automatic heart rate reading on and off on the watch: samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00083511/

Oh, my mistake!

It appears you can turn off step tracking and much more in there too!

 

Fantastic!

I like the suggestion @John79x 

 

Personally I use a Galaxy Fit for all that good stuff, and don't want my watch doing any of that. So I agree, it would be great to have few more settings on that front.
