So there is no way to measure heart rate, stress or blood oxygen with the note 20 now? Send like a big step back from the note 8. Disappointed.

The S20 does away with Samsung's heart rate sensor, a feature that's been with the S series for a long time. Many people use this feature a pulse oximeter with Samsung's Health app, so you may be surprised to find the S20 no longer supports the feature. If you don't have a fitness band or smartwatch with this functionality and absolutely need a phone that can check your pulse, the S10 and S10+ are the way to go.

Hi,

Thanks for your post, I was struggling to find a way to measure my oxygen level in the Note 20 Ultra, but couldn't do that until I read this post.

The Samsung galaxy watch doesn't show the oxygen level, only messure the heart rate and the stress level.

Gladly I still have the Note 8, I will keep using it for that purpose.

Wait!!! The gear s3 classic and frontie measure the same as the s10 and below... and I believe the gear active does as well...  so don't give up on samsung watches... I use them to monitor my o² levels.... and my heart rate... seems to be doing just fine

Yes you must have the watch to do so. As expensive as this phone is you would think it would have all the features previously in prior flagship plus more.

That's how they get you to buy accessories. I was super disappointed to find this feature was taken away. More expensive phone that has features taken away that older phones still have... super bummed. I'll use my old fashioned oximeter after I exercise I guess.

This is a phone, with a built-in heart rate sensor.

 

What was the point of Samsung including the heart sensor on the newer devices if they were disabling the feature. We as customers have the right to be confused and frustrated with Samsung deleting features we've come to rely on.

The Note 10+ does not have the sensor either.
