Samsung Gear Troubleshooting

You are here:

If your Samsung Gear is not syncing using the Virgin Pulse application, here are a few things to check!

Confirm that your data is available on the SHealth app:

  • If the steps are showing up on the SHealth app but not on the Virgin Pulse app, then proceed with the instructions below.
  • If the steps are not showing up on the SHealth app, please contact Samsung Health at: 1-800-726-7864 for troubleshooting assistance.

In order to confirm that the steps are being synced with the SHealth, open the SHealth application and ensure that it contains the steps from either Smartphone or (in this case), Samsung Gear/Galaxy Watch by following these steps: 

1) Open the SHealth app.

2) Tap on the number of the steps on the homepage.


3) Tapping on “Trends” will let you scroll through the historical data.


4) Tapping on the three dots in the upper-right corner will let you choose what data you want to see.


If the Steps are on SHealth, but not on Virgin Pulse, please follow the instructions below:

1) When you confirm that you have the steps on SHealth, tap on the Menu in the upper-left corner of the SHealth homescreen.


2) Tap the “Settings” icon (upper-right corner).


3) Scroll down to “Data Permissions”.


4) Tap on “Virgin Pulse”.


5) Ensure that all data is “Allowed to read”.


As with any device, begin troubleshooting with a Disconnect/Connect:

 1) Open the Virgin Pulse app, and tap on the Profile icon in the navigation menu at the bottom of the Home screen

 2) Tap on the Devices and Apps icon in the upper left corner.

 3) Locate Samsung Health and tap Disconnect.

 4) After it has been disconnected, tap Connect.

5) Wait 30-60 seconds and then check if the data is there.
