Continuous heart rate monitoring

Post by bibet80 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 2:28 am

I understand that continuous heart rate monitoring is currently not available due to some concern with battery life, but I would like to have this option available. So the user can decide to turn on or off this option and the frequency like may be every 5 or 10 min so that it does not drain the battery life so much. Then with some algorithm, the software can show the user's resting heart rate based on the lowest heart rate monitored.

Hi,

I know that is for sure possible. You can make an app that can access the HR with a pre set time interval (ex: every 10 minutes) and save the info into a file; also display on the watch. This app would have to be manually started and would run in the background for however long you'd like to track (I haven't tried this part yet).

Cheers!
