It seems really awful to have this function that was promised a year ago (for gear fit 2) become active BUT ONLY IF YOU ALSO HAVE A SAMSUNG PHONE. Really? REALLY?!?! I bought this watch because it works with my Pixel phone. All other features work well. But this on? This one is only for people who also bought a Samsung phone? I'm selling my watch immediately. This is so, so shady of you, Samsung. I'll never buy any of your products, ever again. Shame on you.
Do not forget you also need an additional app to Samsung Health called Samsung Health Monitor so your information is not all in the same app to share with your doctor.
And diabeties support was also discontinued!
Agreed, there is no reason why this feature should not be released to those of us with non-Samsung devices when all Galaxy Watches were marketed as this function will be available once cleared by FDA (or other country governing bodies). It said nothing to the extent that this major selling feature would be limited to Samsung-only phones.
This is false advertising at it's best and honestly, Samsung would be smart to release Samsung Health Monitor for all Android and iOS phones, or combine it into Samsung Health and include the ECG feature <edit>. You sold at least two watches now with the promise of ECG, and it's greedy to lock it down to sell more phones. Ridiculous.
