Its pretty fustrating that the sensors dont work. I tried every solution offered on the forums and still nothing. How is it that samsung can basically kill all ther watches and not care. Awaiting a solution, but till then I guess i have to use my trusty Garmin to work out.
@SamsungAdam none of the sensors are working. The heart rate is not blinking, the acclerometer is not working, and the altitude/Baro is also not working. Did a *#0*# sensor test and they all failed. Wake up gesture also stopped working. Plus now the battery only lasts like 12-16 hours.
Model Number: SM-R760
I was having this issue since the beginning of this year. After a lot of research and trying everything I've found on Internet last month I sent my watch to a Samsung service center.
They replaced a circuit board and now my watch is working perfectly, but it costed one third of the price of a new one.
I still think this problem was caused by one of the software updates, probably overloaded some circuit.
Honestly I don't think I'll trust Samsung again when looking for a new one...
Hope this can help other users!!
