I have a question regarding sync between Samsung Health (not SHM) and GW4.

Does Galaxy Watch 4 requires Samsung Health android app version 6.17+ in order to work? Since my phone (Xperia Z5) is stuck on android 7 officially, my Samsung Health app is also stuck on version 6.15.6.001. I have made few attempts to register manually through Samsung Health by tapping on Galaxy Watch4 register button in the accessories menu ( ≡ > Accessories > Galaxy Watch4 > Register) but it fails to find the watch.

Because of this, my phone Samsung Health app doesn't sync with the watch Samsung Health app.

things i tried:
  1. Manually register from Samsung Health App
  2. Resetting the watch and register through Samsung Health App
  3. Resetting the watch and re-register through Wearable then Samsung Health app
Any Ideas?
 
The libraries for watch4 are inside the Samsung Health in 6.18 but not previous version, so sadly, I don't think it would pair as long as you have the old 6.15 Samsung Health... I would've lowered the android target to 7 but such a small mod may not hold up for too long and end up breaking, if you want to try, let me know and I will lower it for you...

It's okay there's no need. I ended up unlocked the bootloader of my phone and flashed Lineage OS 18 so i can use latest Samsung Health in exchange for battery life and thermal stability.


Edit:
I think you can go ahead and lower the android target 7 and i'll let you know if it works or not. It might help others for the moment if it works

Sure, but I can't test it as a samsung user, samsung health mod never works for samsung phones and as I said, most likely to be break (unstable), so it will be only for you to test and not for the public as it might confuse people or give false hope more than helping them

I will PM you the mod later

EDIT:
Samsung Health MOD is broken due to being a core application, it can't be modified without breaking several services and functions such the cloud backup sync
