    Welcome to the forum. I'm guessing you won't be able to use that stuff because the person you bought it from rooted the phone and blew the knox hardware fuse. Unfortunately some features rely on Knox and won't work anymore. Only thing I can suggest is maybe find another app that might do the same as the Samsung Health app.

    Yes, I information below was from a reddit forum and an S-10. Even if you do it's not guaranteed to get Samsung Health back, that's a hit or miss proposition.

    As u/sahil04 replied, once you root, the fuse stays at 0x1 and will prevent you from using features such as the ones you mentioned in your post. There is no way of getting those functions to work again without re-rooting the phone. When I rooted my S7 edge I went to build.prop in /system folder using a root explorer, changed ro.config.tima back to 0 and regained access to Samsung Health. However, I also flashed a custom kernel which tricked the device to think knox is at 0x0 after boot, so I could use Secure folder and SPass.
