Does any one know why I don't have SPO2 app in my galaxy watch 3 samsung health app? I have ecg and everything else but not that. Can someone help me out.

Where do you live?
SPO2 depends on your firmware i believe. Only BP/ECG can be installed via TPK/Samsung health apk.
I'm in France and cant get SPO2 neither, it is country based.

If you're in France and you want SP02 to work, you can try resetting your watch (make a backup first) and choose e.g. Spain as region.
Spain supports Samsung Pay and SP02. And as you said, BP/ECG can be sideloaded to the Watch.
I live in Holland, but chose Spain as region. I have everything working (SPay, SP02, BP and ECG).

Yes i already tried this, but i'm on note10+ with french samsung store, and my gw3 is LTE version. I had resetted mobile lte when i did watch reset wifi / BT off. Still didnt work.
Maybe i did something wrong...
If you have a clear walkthrough i'd be happy to test again.
Maybe need to change samsung store on N10+ to spain too?

I've got LTE version of GW3 and a Note 20 Ultra, not need to reinstall Healt.
I've do this yesterday, and trust me i was very boring to reset the watch, but it's work good.

Install the two apps and then, on your phone in Galaxy Wearable, you'll see in widgets section.

Did all this but no widget.
I remember having it long time ago, but it would not show up on watch (french region).
Now i dont see it anymore in Wearable.
There must be a walkthrough to have it work... Maybe it's because Samsung Health is french store version. Maybe need to connect 1st time to the watch with no internet connectivity on the phone until all steps are done. Dunno, this drives me nuts!

I'd do last night so it's no pssible that don't work.

Did you have install the two apps ? Did you had activate ECC ?

When ECC is activated, go in Galaxy Wearable and let's see the new widget are comming, ECC, blood pressure and SPo2, just add, save and see to your watch...

Here you can follow every step, title is "Galaxy Watch 2" but it's exactly the same for GW3

Yup i've had ecg/bp for over a month already.
But no o2 widgets shows up.

Did you reset Galaxy wearable app?
The account im logued onto Wearable has parameter region France (same as the phone).
I think there's some region conflict but cant figure what, something that doesnt allow me to see this widget. I might try again without Samsung health app on phone just to check... damn

Is you watch connected to LTE? Mine is (disabled though for the reset).

So, my watch is LTE version, and connected.

Did you follow the steps in the Youtube video ?

i repeat one more time, after install the two apps, try ECG, it's work good, and go on your phone, check update Samsung Health (ver 6.12.1.001), Wearable (2.2.34.20091461) + Watch3 Plugin (ver 2.2.09.20090251) and watch firmware (R845FXXU1BTG7). After this, in Galaxy Wearable on your phone, let's see the list of widget available, and you'll see, when scrolling down, Samsung Health "oxygène dans le sang" , put the + button on the left and save, wait until watch and phone sync. and that's all.
That's exactly what i'm doing for have this feature.
@adfree that's why we use this method, to activated this feature, that's what i do last night and it's ok for me.

I think the LTE version of the watch is the problem. I have the BT version and all I have to do to change the region to a selected group of Western Europe countries is a reset. The watch asks which region you want when it restarts after the reset. LTE is not supported in Holland, where I am, so I guess the group of countries to chose from is even more limited (one only?) when you have an LTE version.
It's not the phone CSC I think. My Note 10+ is on PHN (Holland) and that is irrelevant for the choice I got on the watch.

There is no matter with LTE version because i've do it on mine.
Just follow the step in right order, and that's work find.

I've found the solution in a mix of a topic here on XDA forum, and the Youtube video that i linked here.

Work for everybody, no conflict with other region of the phone because only watch region is important.

So, for everybody want to have SPo2 available, just follow the step, that's all. You don't need to look for a problem, there don't have anyone.

Of course i did follow, i have also the same versions as yours. the widgets BP and ECG appear but not Oxy.
But blood oxygen will not show up, whereas it was fine before. Did you use language : France (France) and Region : Spain ?
I remember that i used to see this widget some time ago, when i had chosen region France i could see Oxy in Wearables but wouldnt show up on watch.
Now i just dont see it anymore in Wearable.
I"m going to restart and retry over... Been like 4 times already :confused:
Anyways thanks much for your help. Hope i get it solved.

Not a problem with region, read above ;)

Region Spain and language French, that's right.

When your watch is reset, for the first connection with your phone, in wearable you need to add new device, and appair as a new, of course. And when it's connected, you can run save. After install the 2 apk, run Samsung Healt Monitor freshly install, from your watch, launch ECG config, run one time, go to your phone apps Wearable, widget etc... That's what i do.
I can try to make real tuto, maybe a video to explane all process step by step, but really, i don't want to reset my watch now 'cause everything is done, save and more but if that's the only solution, i think i can do.
