I have a Samsung Gear 2 and it counts floor and I use that daily. Since I updated the Samsung Health App however the floor count is dropped. Why is this done. User should be able to track this and it comes from a Samsung fitness tracker.
I just noticed this recently after snowboarding with my Gear S3 Frontier. I went to look at floors" data and couldn't find it on my SH app. The watch still measures altitude which through math SH equates to approximate floors. Turned out the whole altimeter app had to be re-authorized on my watch and I still can't find floors history on SH. It's unfortunate that they removed it altogether and didn't just put in an "elevation change" widget in SH in its place. Plenty of complaining on here about floors not being accurate when people don't really understand that the watch (and Samsung) have no idea if you are going up stairs, or walking up a hill. I'd like to see the elevation gain tracking return to SH but I won't get my hopes up.
