Hi, 

Does anyone know if its possible to view the map of my route i walked on my phone? I can see it on my galaxy watch just not in the Samsung health app on my phone.. But all the other data from my watch is there.

Thank you

You can track and save it in Google maps.

Thanks not sure that helps me or how to do that. 

Its this from my watch I want to see on my phone. As the rest of the data is shared with my phone. IMG_20200507_132133.jpg

In Samsung Health, if you "Exercise", and tap on "Recent Workouts", you should see your activity in there, if you actually started an exercise.  Tapping on the exercise in question, you should see your route in there.  If not there, I got nothing else.

OK, thanks so I guess the only way to 'share' the route I took for my excerise as seen in my photo. Is to as I did use my phone's camera.

Sorry I just thought it odd that my watch shares all data but GPS data with my phone. 

Thanks anyway

I don't know about route data, but you can do one better than using your camera: Take a screen shot on the watch, open Gallery and transfer the screenshot to your phone.

(I would expect that screenshot command is the same as Galaxy Watch: Press HOME button and swipe right at the same time.)

If indeed you did an activity/exercise and it shows up as an activity with the associated map and data, at the bottom of the page, scroll down, and you can "Export as GPX", which is your route data.  If you didn't do an exercise/activity, how did you get that map on your watch?

The map on my watch was cos I did an excerise...walking and it must use GPS automatically hence the map of my route. However the map wasn't exported with the rest of the data to my phone so only way to do it was a screenshot of the map.

 

Anyway I've looked everywhere for this "export as gpx" you mentioned but if it exists I can't find it on my galaxy watch or in Samsung health.  Thanks anyway

This may seem rather basic, but have you tried shutting down the watch, then shutting down the phone, turning both completely off, and leave them off for maybe 15-20 seconds.  Then turn on the phone, let it come completely up, then turn on your watch, and let it come completely up.  See if you're activity came through after that.  If not, I have no other ideas, short of a complete reinstall, or maybe try another short walk and see if it's a consistent problem.
