Look at the size of those bezels? Absurd! Save valuable screen real estate and take the screen to the "edge" with 1mm max bezels. What are these idiots doing?!

Anonymous, 16 Oct 2020I found that too.I had the same issue with battery consumption. You need to do a backup and a factory reset on the phone and it resolves it. Takes a about 10 minutes
You can do it following the steps in the attached video. I have ECG and BP working fine on my active 2 watch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11lvEJWdzMY

Hisham, 24 Sep 2020the update is now available for USA Just updated my watchI am in the US, and just updated the Active2, but I don't see the SpO2 app anywhere. How do you get to it?
What the fine print says is the BP monitor and the O2 sensor both require a samsung phone to function, so thos of us without samsung phones get to piss off. I am actually actively looking to roll back the update because ever since I installed 5.5.01 its been draining both the watch battery and my phone battery in record time (100-0 on the watch in 4 hours, and i didnt even look at it the whole time) and constantly disconnecting from my phone as well, I will go back to 4.X until they actually test their software and get it working right.
Still no sign of Blood Pressure, ECG or VO2 Max in Canada. Have the latest 292 MB Tizen update for the Active 2. This update perhaps is just to calm down the customers using Active 2 and gain more time. If these features cannot be used at this time of the pandemic when it is most useful, it would probably be a useless feature for many. Too many promises and less delivered by Samsung.

You shouldn't take my word for it though cause that guy has several watches, you should probably ask the guys in xda for more info.
