How can I get my GW3 to periodically take sp02 measurements throughout the night? 


The posted solution from the link above:

"Thank you for your interest in sharing your ideas with Samsung. We appreciate your feedback and will tag it on the forum so that it will appear with other feedback, ideas, and requests. This will allow your post to be more easily found in the event that Samsung product groups are seeking outside feedback/requests/ideas regarding our products."


is NOT a solution to the problem.

I received a notification in Health that if I turned on the feature, I'd be able to track my O2 during sleep. I turned it on, and then for a couple of weeks it showed no reading being taken. Now, the entire section of your oxygen levels throughout the night has simply vanished from the app. I don't understand why Samsung doesn't keep us better informed about why they tinker with these things. It's so disappointing. I own top of the line Samsung products, and I'd like to have the same features available that Apple users have. The only thing I can think of is that Samsung decided it would be a selling point if the GW4 were the only watch that allowed you to track O2 at night. There's simply no reason why my GW3 paired with my S21 shouldn't be able to do it. I plan on calling Samsung about the issue, though they probably won't be much help. I hope I'm wrong and Samsung writes the feature back into the code.

I can understand not having a feature can be frustrating. We don't have any way of knowing when a feature is being removed or added to a device. All we can do is suggest that you download the next software update and the feature you're looking for may be available.
