Gear Fit2 Pro: How to measure heart rate

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

Q: How do I measure heart rate?
A:The Gear’s heart rate app is intended for fitness and informational purposes only and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.
To measure your heart rate more accurately with the Gear, wear the Gear firmly around your lower arm just above the wrist.
Be aware of following conditions before measuring your heart rate:
• If you have just purchased or have reset the Gear, create your profile.
• Rest for 5 minutes before taking measurements.
• If the measurement is very different from the expected heart rate, rest for 30 minutes and then measure it again.
• During winter or in cold weather, keep yourself warm when measuring your heart rate.
• Smoking or consuming alcohol before taking measurements may cause your heart rate to be different from your normal heart rate.
• Do not talk, yawn, or breathe deeply while taking heart rate measurements. Doing so may cause your heart rate to be recorded inaccurately.
• The accuracy of the heart rate sensor can be affected depending on the user’s movements, personal physiology, and the measurement conditions and surroundings.
• If the heart rate sensor is not working, check the Gear’s position on your wrist and make sure nothing is obstructing the sensor.

1 Tap Heart rate on the Apps screen.
2 Tap Measure to begin measuring your heart rate.

After a moment, your current heart rate will be displayed on the screen.
