Re: Samsung Health Oxygen saturation removed?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

If you read the accepted solution, which was posted before your comment you will see that O2 sensor is still enabled and available in Samsung Health. It has just been moved to a different place in the app (it's under "Stress").

 

I've just verified this with the latest Android and the latest Samsung Health a/o Apr 21, 2020.

Re: Samsung Health Oxygen saturation removed?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have a Galaxy S10e running Android 10.  I installed Samsung Health today (4/24/20), so I'm using the latest version.  I did this explicitly to use the oxygen saturation feature.  Of course I found it wasn't there; I do see the 1/22/20 notice, "Oxygen saturation measurement is moving", which says "In the stress tracker, if Measure multiple is turned on, your oxygen saturation level will be included in your results."

However, there's no stress tracker/measurement function.  I enabled the permissions most likely to be involved (Body sensors, Camera, and Storage) and it didn't appear so I enabled all the requested permissions.  Still no stress tracker.

In the app description in Google Play it says "Tablets and some mobile devices may not be supported.  Some functions may not be available based on regions/service providers/devices."  I guess my phone & I fall into one of those categories.  Good luck to the rest of you!

This suggestion is absolute rubbish! I called and the rep told me(in terrible broken english) that they could make a "note" of it but they would not be getting this feature back as a stand alone option again. She was frankly rude and I'm certain there is no "note" beings she wouldn't even take my name! Really setting the bar high Samsung!

@WarpedTrekker Since the new update, Oxygen Saturation has been moved and included with "stress measure" option. I know, how did stress relates to oxygen saturation, but I also use O2 Sat when i feel sick or hike on high altitude so I guess samsung thinks when you are stress your oxygen will go down =).Screenshot_20190627-142929_Samsung Health.jpg

But it's not available to everyone. Canadians are left out. I also rely on that due to my mental condition. I have anxiety disorder and one of the psychosomatic symptoms is breathing problems. It helps me calm down during knowing my oxygen saturation level is normal. It saves me trips to the ER evertime I have panic attacks.

@userBofkuhLBMo  No you have to press and measure stress and when the result come it will show Pulse and O2 sat.. Oxygen saturation is more related to lungs i am not sure much of mental or behaviour condition. If oxygen is not enough that means lungs are not functioning well.

Please note that STRESS option DOES NOT EXIST in Canada therefore this is not a solution to the issue. Samsung needs to add the 02 sensor reading back like in the previous version. 

As well taking an 02 reading is useful to people with anxiety disorders(mental illness) as it can confirm that you are actually getting enough oxygen (even if it feels like you aren’t).

This is ridiculous! Why take off something that apple has?? I hate apple, but I use my sp02 monitor a lot. DUMB move samsung, charge 1200 bucks for a phone that removed something many people used and for no reason.

It may have to do with your phone and not that you're in Canada ... I'm in Ohio, USA, with a Galaxy S10e and the app has no Stress option for me either.  I think that unlike earlier versions of this phone, it no longer has the infrared (IR) sensor required to measure heart rate and oxygen saturation.  So the problem isn't the app.  It's a hardware limitation.
