Hey those of you lucky enough to have the GS6 early.

Quick question as I have read conflicting reports of Google fit not working with the GS6 and/or making the heart rate sensor on all the time.

Is this the case? I know I can use S Health which seems to be ok - but it doesn't work with Android wear so Google fit is pretty important to me.

you see some people have said this. But them some have said it does make the HR sensor stay on.

The issue before was with the auto activity detection I think.

You have to turn Activity Detection off.

I was impacted by this and had the heart rate monitor going off whenever it was in my pocket or when I would set it down on a table. It seems Google has acknowledged this at some level as the S6 is no longer listed as a compatible device for Google Fit on Google Play.

Still doesn't work
Google Fit still isn't compatible with the S6.. I hope they will fix that soon, Android Wear keeps telling me to activate Google Fit on my phone but I can't.

Well, this sucks. I use Fit, too. Just realized it wasn't running on my new S6, went to install, says it's not compatible. Anybody got an .apk for a side-load?
