Having just got a Galaxy Watch, I don't like always viewing  my exercise,nutrition, and weight data and stats on a scrunched up phone screen. Is there any way to view a summary of all my samsung health data online, and enter information through a web-based interface like Google Fit, MyFitnessPal or other health-based apps?

It boggles my mind that Samsung still doesn't have the option to view Samsung Health data on your PC or any Web Interface.  What is the point of collecting all of that data and looking at health and workout trends while only having the option to stare of a small phone screen?  I purchased a Galaxy Watch earlier this year and am tempted to ditch it for something else.  At this point, all my watch does is give me reminders and text messages.

I totally agree. I went from a fitbit to the Galaxy active 2 watch and am disappointed in the tracking abilities. I could go online with my fitbit and see all my steps for a whole month, which is something we do at work. You could see so much more with the fitbit online. I really like my smartwatch, but kind of wishing I had just stayed with the fitbit because of the online experience.

FFS, for a $350 watch at the time of the purchase last year, it only lasts maybe 3 days at the most w/o having to charge it and have zero benefits from a health perspective.  If I could give a lower number than zero, I would.  Even if they do decide to make an online portal or feature/functionality available, at this point I am a little too miffed to stay with Samsung as a vendor.

 

The market is absolutely flooded with better products and with vendors that actually listen to the user base, unlike Samsung.  Besides this forum, either in user studies, surveys, etc... the fact that they blatantly ignore this basic feature is frustrating at best.

THIS ISN'T A FIX BY SAMSUNG, but is a workaround.  Download the Samsung Health data on your phone, compress it, and email it to yourself.  Then open the specific Excel file and make a pivot table or chart.

 

Again, this isn't a fix an way too much work just to simply view it on a computer monitor.

So while this is by no means a solution, I have found that it is easier to use the Dex app to view my samsung health info. Again, not a solution, but a workaround.

Well, I was using a workaround which involved exporting the GPX data from the workout and importing it into Endomondo. 

This worked quite well until...you've guessed it...Samsung inexplicably removed this feature.

This moderator screw you over.

 

Samsung does not offer the data outside of your phone and that is a good thing.

But it also offers any app on your phone or watch to access the data.

 

You can share with third parties as you want, this includes Fit and others.

I will not post links to solutions, but they are in the play store.

 

It would be a great ide to have Samsung Health more accessible. That is the only thing moderator said well.

I had a Fitbit prior to the Samsung. I also loved the dashboard with the Fitbit. That being said, to say the apps available for the Fitbit watch were subpar would be the understatement of the year. Next to no decent apps and half of them looked like they were put together by someone learning coding, they looked like apps from 10 years ago the graphics were so bad. That and the fact that I couldn't use my bank with fitbit pay made my decision easy. I don't know if that has expanded in the last year or so or not. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible to have the best of both. I upload my workouts to Strava but I'd still love an everyday dashboard that could access my samsung health info. I'll have to bop over to Fitbit and see if anything has improved enough to make me switch back but I'm doubting it.
