How To Fix Not Working Heart Monitor On Samsung Note 9 And Note 8

Getting to monitor your heart rate is not just an exciting feature and an extra thing to check up on your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or Note 9 all day long. If you’re even the least concerned about your health and you’re planning to increase your daily level of activity, you will absolutely love the opportunity of comparing your activity level with the heart rate and see what works best for your daily workout routine.

Until you get to do that, however, we might have to give you a special hint on getting started with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 Heart Monitor. We’ve recently got too many questions on a possible malfunction of this sensor to consider it a personal misunderstanding. So, we have to tell you – if you suspect that the heart rate monitor isn’t showing the right stats, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a serious problem. Not if you haven’t removed the protective film attached to the smartphone when you have taken it out of the box…


If you didn’t do that, the most probable cause of the allegedly not working heart monitor on Note 9 and Note 8 is that protection foil. The film is applied from the factory, straight to the lens, to protect it against scratches or dusting until it gets to you. Once you receive it, you have no reasons to keep it in there. On the contrary, it’s actually preventing you from making the best of your new phone.


To remove the foil from the lens and fix the Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 heart rate monitor…

Get yourself a pair of scissors and a roll of duct tape. Cut a piece of the scotch tape and stick it on the heart sensor and pull it off. It should remove the protective film and free the sensor. From now on, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 will measure your heart rate just perfectly.
