I want to remove the S Health app, but still to be able to monitor the heart rate.
Is there any third party app that can use the S5 sensor?

Plenty of apps that use the camera lens if you don't mind finger prints on lens. Why do you want to remove S health?

I would like to know this also. I looked at s-health. I don't want to monitor my activity, but I would like to have an app that just reads heart rate.

You can use the hardware module test. Access it by dialing *#0*#. Then go to sensors, then start under HRM sensor. It's not pretty but it works.

Thanks for the reply. Definitely not elegant. I hope someone comes out with a simple heart rate monitor app so we don't have to choose between the hardware module test and s health. Samsung is like a junkie except they are addicted to bloat not smack.
