The heart rate and blood oxygen data in the health app is lacking. Nonexistent for Wear OS in the Play Store. As one with heart disease, I need more detailed data. It is unfortunate this one issue keeps me on an iPhone/Apple Watch.  HeartWatch and its sibling AutoSleep on the iPhone are superb. It sure would be nice if Samsung took note and provided a better app.

@KennyG357 Both Heart Rate and Blood Oxygen are both available in the GW4 which is (so far) the only Samsung Wear OS device. There is nothing you need to find in the Play Store.

The watches from Samsung have all been designed to use as activity trackers, not medical devices, as clearly stated when activating the watch and elsewhere.

Samsung Health is a 'health' app, thus the name, and is not a diagnostic or medical service app, as stated in the app information.

It's a liability issue. Samsung is not licensed to practice medicine or to give medical advice. They're not a medical service, and they never will be. They are an electronics company.
