Just out of curious, I went to test out the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2’s hear rate monitor with my Oximeter just to see the accuracy level. Watch the video for the result.

  2. The watch seems to be to close to the wrist,
    plus the pulse wave on the screen is quite erratic (poor positioning of watch again) making the reading of the value difficult.
    I don't think the test is run well enough.

  3. DID you go for a run first, or what? I am usually at low 70s, mid to high 60s. Have a seat, stabilize your arm and be still. then let's see how it goes.

  4. To be honest, I compared my active 2 with 3 machines at the gym (elliptical, treadmill and bicycle), and the deviation was minimal.

  5. Should have set the watch heart rate reader ti always on so you can see both the watch and the finger device together. Having the watch measure manually you don't actually know at what point the heart rate was taken.

  6. This video is bullshit, the curves shows he is using the watch wrong. The curves should be periodic with regular circles, mine does. I don't know if he is using it loosely or to close to the hand, but definitely he is using it wrong.

  7. Just to let everyone know, if you have it on check every 10 minutes, and your heart rate is between 45-60 for instance. Then you put it on the check heart rate full time mode and it jumps to 80-110 + it's at fault. So turn off the constant heart rate check and turn it back on. It will work as I have tested it. It must be a manufacture fault.

  8. It is really unfortunate that the Active2, a supposed "fitness watch", doesn't do O2 saturation measurement. Especially since it's supposed to do sleep monitoring, which is impossible to do with any usefulness or accuracy without an O2 sensor.

  9. Why didn't you try leaving the HR measurement on the watch to always active so it more on par with the oximeter

  10. some moisture below the watch will show your heart rate upwards 100, just remove and dry off your wrist and watch straight off it shoots down to 70's. Accuracy is a big question with watches

  11. There are different pressure points affecting the location of each device in a different way. The best way to reduce measurement error is to lay the hand on the table, trying not to rest all the weight of your hand on the watch strap (elevating tge wrist area slightly).

    You could also measure in three ways, measuring your other finger with a Samsung phone with heart rate monitor.

  12. Thanks for this.. I don't believe the Active 2 is very good. I'm feeling stressed, but the HR seems to be at resting. Surely that's wrong… Or am I just special 🙂 lol

  13. First, you can't be talking while doing the readings, second, you're moving.. third, the watch only does one reading and gives you a final reading ..

  14. Redo the experiment with the watch correctly positioned 1 finger width away from wrist and on continuous mode and leave a link to the new updated video on this one.
