Your Pulse HR 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 sent every 30 minutes 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 Pulse HR, make sure the wristband of your Pulse HR 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 Pulse HR 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 and hold the button of your Pulse HR for about a second until it vibrates.
- Press the button on the tracker or tap on the screen to cycle through activities.
- Press and hold the button on the tracker to launch the mode with the selected activity.
- Press the button until it vibrates again when you want to stop your workout session and the continuous heart rate mode.
Note that the chronometer, heart rate, calories, and distance screens appear on the display of your Pulse HR when the continuous heart rate mode is on. If you launched a workout session, you will see additional screens depending on your activity, such as pace for running or speed for cycling.
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.
