Heart Rate Capped at 110 bpm
Posted: Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:58 pm
I have a TicWatch Pro, and I've enabled the continuous heart rate monitoring. I'm disappointed because my watch never reports a heart rate above 110 bpm, regardless of the level of activity I'm doing, unless I use the TicWatch Fitness app on the watch. In that case, I will get accurate heart rate reporting during intense exercise above 110 bpm that is very close to what I've seen from my Garmin. At any other time, if I don't begin an exercise with the Fitness app, the heart rate reported by the watch will not go above 110 bpm. The same is true if I use any other exercise app on the watch (Endomondo, Google Fit, etc). Those apps will not report a heart rate above 110 bpm, presumably because the TicWatch Fitness app is not being used to track the activity. Does anyone else have this issue? I've tried tightening the wrist strap, modifying settings, and a factory reset, but nothing seems to change this behavior.
