Measuring my Heart Rate on my Samsung Watch

Last Update date : Oct 18. 2021

Heart rate is measured in beats per minute. To measure your heart rate, position your watch on the top or underside of your wrist (not on your wrist bone). For more accurate measurement, try to keep still and quiet.

Your resting heart rate is the number of times your heart beats during 1 minute of rest. Sit and relax for 5 minutes before measuring your resting heart rate. Typically, your resting heart rate decreases over time with consistent aerobic exercise. Your resting heart rate will only be measured while you're not moving an Auto HR is set to measure continuously.

Keep in mind that heart rate monitoring is for fitness and wellness only, not for the diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition. If you're concerned about your heart, be sure to see a medical professional.
