hi DoofDoof13 ,
The answer is a yes and a no .
first yes, i have the Runtastic pro running app( paid app ) on my phone ( note 3 )
i also installed the Runtastic gear app from Samsung store onto Gear.
i use a Polar H7 bluetooth monitor on chest and can see my readings from Gear .( see screenshot )
This app is very good and accurate,
a bit heavy on the battery, when using it, but its only during excercise when using app ( 1 to 2 hours )
the other app i am " testing "Argus" fro Samsung store ( free app for Gear )
it has a pedometer and hart rate function
You test hart rate using Gear camera ..place finger on camera lens etc...
still trying to decide how accurate it is ,as i compare it with my polar and it was a bit of the mark ?
(will have to test again sometime. )
