To use the new watch full feature Samsung Health must be configured.  That requires give access to my phone so others who have my number in their contacts can find me.  I don't want any of that.  I want to monitor my health.  Can this be undone

Why you think that, if Samsung Health (SH) has your phone number, people can track you.

SH needs to access your contact list, so, should you decided to, you can create a friend list in Together.Screenshot_20230516_142130_Google Play Store.jpg

Go into Samsungs health app and disable contacts. 2 things won't work emergency contacts and together. If you want these functions it must have access as they are contact features. Otherwise everything else works.
