Why was this removed from the app? I had a lot of data I was keeping for my doctor and it was the most useful thing in the app for me. They remove a function without notifying customers beforehand. Makes me want to switch to Apple. 

 

How do we contact Samsung support about this?

Hi there. I just read this & wanted to let you know I ended up here as I was told that you can check your O2 levels with a Samsung phone. I am gutted to find out this may not be the case. I too was diagnosed with Pleurisy back in Feb. I am still struggling with my breathing beyond belief. I have been given antibiotics, steroids, put on inhalers for suspected Asthma. Now the Drs believe both me and my little girl had Covid. We both ended up in Urgent Care. She is responding well to the inhalers but nothing works for me. Maybe that was the case with you too. How are you doing now? I was curious when I saw your post. I too really need this feature. As I'm sure many others do right now.

Samsung's response is rubbish. Combining it with the Stress test doesn't work. You cant see any history of your SpO2 now.

This is a shame. This is also the last Samsung phone I will own. I use the monitor as a self check when I have an anxiety attack, and I only discovered this in the middle of the biggest one I've had in months. 

Meanwhile Apple is building an ECG into their watches? Samsung's gonna get left behind.

For those who are not happy with Samsung removing the sp02 tab from Samsung health with the new update (version 6.5).. You can just uninstall S Health from the phone and then download and install S health apk version 6.4, (I've included a link down below)... you will now have the sp02 tab back and the ability to measure stress separately.

Hey guys, just want to add in that you should be aware that there is a possibility when downloading APKs that it can mess with the update schedule for the app. There are work-arounds available for if that happens.

It's not there anymore for me. Note 10+ and active 2 watch. When you have a watch, you can't even measure manually. It's so stupid. I can't find anything on the watch that lets me see it by itself and there's no explanation of what the stress levels even mean. So if it's low, my o2 is good?

I have COPD and I have to check my oxygen levels alot and it was what sold me on this phone (galaxy s 8+) I paid almost 950.00 for this phone because of that being a app in the Samsung health. I find this VERY WRONG we (Samsung loyal customers) should have been informed?? How shady, i no longer want this phone now... i believe i should be reimbursed again the ONLY reason i paid this much for a phone is for the extras that come with it smh. Bad move Samsung
