You can't turn off the notification that tells you to try Samsung Health every time you reconnect to the watch unless you try Samsung Health (sell your health data). Also right now when the app opens, it'll say there's an update available, but when you tap update and go to the Play Store, there's no update, so you have to tap Open from that screen. It takes several extra seconds and three steps to open the app. Very annoying. But the app is otherwise perfectly functional.

I have the same complaint as in the first review I read here: Since the latest update, I keep getting notifications on my watch for emails. I never have turned that on, because I get way too many emails! It is monumentally annoying to keep getting these notifications on my watch. I constantly go back to the app and turn the notifications for emails off, only to have them start up again a short while later! This needs to be corrected ASAP! It should be a simple fix for the app programmers.

The app used to be fine until a recent update (Oct, 2022). The only icons I ever had set to receive alerts on my watch was text and phone. Since the update, it automatically turned the notification on for email. I get way too many emails and don't need to feel my watch notify me that much. The battery is already terrible. I keep turning the notification off, but the app turns it back on within a half hour. Tried to email about this first, but no response. This needs to be resolved.
