Samsung Galaxy S5 Disable pedometer on lock screen

By default the pedometer of S Health is displayed on the lock screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5 . The step counter shows the user how many steps he already walked on a day. To use the pedometer a motion sensor is integrated in the smartphone. the sensor counts the steps without great energy consumption.

If you dont want the pedometer to be displayed on the lock screen of your samsung galaxy s5 you can disable it as follows:

To disable the pedometer on the lockscreen open: Menu --> Settings --> Lock Screen --> Additional Information
In this submenu of the Android operating system you can disable the pedometer on the loc screen by removing the tick at "pedometer". The step counter will now not be displayed on the lock screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5 anymore.

It's also possible to disable the pedometer altogether by simply disabling the S Health app from the application settings menu. The app count your steps with a background service by default, even if you've never set it up before.

@Matt - just do the same same steps as above. If it's already activated, just deactivate and re-activate. Worked for me!
