I got simmilar problem with Galaxy Gear S3 Frontier - a continuos use of the heart monitor burned a square hole in my skin 2-3 mm deep (1mm x 2mm x 3mm) - it was a slow rost so no bleeding. I have noticed it cose of a pinching pain on the wrist. It cured itself after 2 weeks with a little scar remained (just to scare Samsung !!!).
I wrote Samsung a message but nobody answerd. Since I have covered the sensors (lenses) with a permanent ink pen, switch off the heart app, otherwise happy with the watch.
I have just bought Samsung Watch (46) as a Xmass20 gift to myself (sale !) as it has an imbedded SIM - but the very first thing was to switch off a heart app and to cover bottom lenses of the watch with permanent ink and a little round sticker to prevent any burns/pain.
There are many simmilar 'Galaxy' complaints on the net !!!
I did not searched other manufacturers/brands for a simmilar problem - but I thing it is common as the sensing laser technology is the same/simmilar.
Perhaps not everybody is reacting in such a sensitive way - although few is enough.
The puzzling question is why Samsung with all its huge reseach budget did not do anything to fix the problem they are aware off for long time by now.
Is there anyone to experirnce the same with an Apple Watch ?????
I have set the stress and heart beat monitoring on my galaxy watch to automatic to get continuous readings during one day and started feeling the heat after few hours to discover that the back led green light caused me a 2nd-degree burn. I sent several complaints to Samsung via the wearable application but still haven't received any explanations
I h have another problem
I just wanna you to confirm it
On Android there was an option to not receive notifications while the mobile is open
. I can't turn it on on my iPhone

Connecting with the phone through bluetooth seems so hard. So for better connection we may need to use samsung phone.
A.ism, 31 Mar 2020How many time should i charge the 46mm watch !? If i use it for notifications and as a clock ?!one time, until its charged
How many time should i charge the 46mm watch !?
If i use it for notifications and as a clock ?!
It should be noted. And this is a very valid point, which prompted me to return the Samsung Smartwatch..
Basically, Samsung health has adds! This is how Samsung developed, you purchase a AU$450 watch and the primary app has in add offers!
2nd the wear app, the Samsung connector require all these conditions to be met if you do not allow all 7 the wear will not connect. They are: FULL ACCESS TO: call logs, call history, contacts, SMS, storage, photos, calendar.
Cannot turn off and simply use GPS and toggle music as the above condition of not allowing something as mundane as call logs, the phone stops syncing and access to the wear APK if prohibited..
Mohammad, 27 Apr 2019How does the e-sim work??cell phone number is paired and mimics the sms and calls when not connected via Bluetooth.
Bob S, 08 Aug 2019I don't know how you got 4 days and 5 hours of battery. It seems pretty impossible from my poi... morethose were not the same settings. 2 days with the always on display is great, also your other settings add battery drain.
JB007, 12 Nov 2019The watch supposed to be waterproof, but somehow my watch stopped working after i went swimmin... morewaterproof is not saltwater proof. Swimming in the dead sea or any salt water is not what is certified for waterproof. also you need to rinse it with fresh water after using a pool too. you can't just swim and go, 5 times then problem occurred is penalty for not rinsing.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2018Gsmarena, any word about the stupid eSIM at LTE version ?? How does it work ??When you connect a Samsung phone to the cellular model, it clones your phone number to the watch
The watch supposed to be waterproof, but somehow my watch stopped working after i went swimming with it. I've send it to the local service (in Israel) ,later I've received the cost for changing the main board, and the back cover, because corrosion...?! How come there is corrosion inside the watch, if its waterproof? When I My watch never failed, or been damaged. I was swimming with the watch, never diving... I decided not to repair the watch for a cost of 60% its original price, and buy a new watch from another firm.
Its very disappointing to buy a "sport" watch (expensive one) and to get a quality of a cheep Chinese watch... Never again Samsung products!
Purchased a Galaxy 46” just before the iOS recent update and ever since the functionality is terrible.
If you are an iPhone person I would sadly stay away from this watch and their tech support teams are awful.
Save your money and avoid the frustration.
I just received a 42mm watch for my birthday 2 weeks ago. I had to return the watch because it would only last a few hours - got a replacement and now not even a full day. The only notification is text message and that's only 10 or so per day. What's the problem?
