Your ScanWatch can help you track your heart rate. By default, it takes a heart rate measurement every ten minutes, allowing you to see how your heart rate fluctuates during the day. Note that your heart rate data is regularly sent to the Withings App.
You also have the option of using the continuous heart rate mode to get your continuous heart rate, which is especially interesting during a workout session. In this case, a measurement is taken every second. Note that the continuous heart rate mode also enables a timer so that you know exactly how long you’ve been working out.
To make sure your heart rate can be effectively tracked by your ScanWatch, make sure the wristband is tight enough while still remaining comfortable. It should also be worn about a centimeter (or half an inch) away from your wrist bone.
Note that you can position your ScanWatch on the lower part of your wrist. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the heart rate data, because the product is not aimed to be positioned on the lower part of your wrist.
You can easily launch the continuous heart rate mode before a workout session. To do so, perform the following steps:
- Press the side button of your ScanWatch.
- Scroll to the Workout screen and press the button to select it.
- Scroll to select the activity of your choice (the continuous heart rate mode is activated at the same time).
- Press and hold the button when you want to pause or to stop your workout session and the continuous heart rate mode.
To view your continuous heart rate measurement graph, open the Withings App and tap directly on the activity for which you activated the continuous mode.
Note: The continuous heart rate mode will be activated automatically after 2 minutes of running. It will stop automatically when the running session is over.
