In this guide, we will show you the steps to bring back the Continuous Heart Rate Graph in the Samsung Health App. The fourth iteration in the Galaxy Watch series has managed to grab all the limelight. Beholding a plethora of nifty features up its sleeves and coupled with a sleek Aluminum metal frame really gives a it luxury touch.
But in order to extract the watch’s maximum potential, you need to have the Health app installed on your Samsung device as well. This will then allow you to check out the workout intensity, state of sleep, heart rate, stress, the oxygen level in the blood, among others. Among them, the tracking of heart rate is among the most used feature. And this is probably its most buggy feature as well.
There have been numerous instances in the past when it gave out inaccurate results, had a few syncing issues with the device or most concerningly, it was unable to properly track the heart rate. While it seemed that all these issues were slowly beginning to settle down, the South Korean conglomerate introduced one of its own.
What is the Issue with Heart Rate Graph in Samsung Health App
Earlier, the Samsung Health App used to display a Continuous Heart Rate Graph and it proved to be quite a beneficial feature. However, the OEM then released a new update versioned 6.19.1.001 for its Health app and gave it an unwanted overhaul. So this feature has been replaced with the average heart rate data that shows the maximum and minimum value over a particular period of time, rather than showing the live results.
The fact that it now displays average value has completely distorted the graph as well. All in all, Samsung has just destroyed one of its most useful features for reasons best known to them. What is even more infuriating is the fact that they hadn’t even mentioned in the version 6.19.1.001 update changelog regarding this change.
If they had listed it there, then probably most of the users wouldn’t have installed it in the first place, thereby saving them from this trouble. Fortunately, there’s a silver lining among those dark clouds. You could still bring back the Continuous Heart Rate Graph in the Samsung Health App. And this guide shall show you how to do just that. So without further ado, let’s get started.
Bring Back the Continuous Heart Rate Graph in Samsung Health App
To fix this issue, all that you need to do is uninstall the latest version from your device. And then install its earlier build. In more technical terms, we will be uninstalling the Health App version 6.19.1.001 and installing version 6.18.7.005. But since Play Store only holds the latest version on any app, you will have to sideload the older build.
In other words, you will have to download the older version from a third-party site. You are free to choose the site of your choice, but I decided to opt for APKMirror. So if you wish to get it from this site, then here’s the direct download link: Samsung Health App version 6.18.7.005. Once downloaded, proceed with the below steps:
- To begin with, head over to the Settings menu on your device.
- Then go to Apps and select the Samsung Health App.
- Now, tap Uninstall > OK in the confirmation dialog box.
Once that is done, you will then have to disable Auto-Updates from Play Store otherwise the app will again be updated to the latest build, thereby nullifying the entire process.
- So launch Play Store and tap on your profile situated at the top-right.
- Then select Settings and expand the Network Preferences section.
- Now go to Auto-Update apps and select Don’t auto-update apps and hit Done.
- Once done, you could now install the Samsung Health App version 6.18.7.005 onto your device and the issue stands rectified.
That’s it. These were the steps to bring back the Continuous Heart Rate Graph in the Samsung Health App. What are your views about this change?
