Heart Rate measure is not working on Black skin, but when it kept in the palm, it is working fine. Please resolve this issue quickly.

It is so frustrating, I'm facing same issue in the same conditions. If I put my finger in the sensor directly it works like a charm, however on my wrist doesn't.

I had the same issue as you describe. However I did a quick hack and got the issue resolved.
Just paste a thin white paper on the sensor behind wristband. Cover both the LED and it started working

Check in attached photo for reference.ššš
