Your body is different every day, and it is easy to over-train or take it too easy. Perhaps you’re tired from work or have a minor illness – it can be better to do a lighter session and give your body the time it needs to recover. Or maybe this is one of those days when you don’t feel fully motivated, but actually your body is ready for anything! Heart rate monitoring puts you in control of how hard your workout should be.
- If you start your workout using the phone, you will see the graph in real time on the phone, and have access to zone and heart rate alarms, planned workouts, rep counting and reference sets.
- If you'd rather use the Heart Graph on your Watch as you do now, you can still keep using it just the same as before.
- Haptics are played on the Watch for the heart rate alarm and heart rate zone alarms.
- WatchOS 4 is now required to run Heart Graph on your Apple Watch.
We've also made the following improvements to the app on the phone:
- Support for iPhoneX.
- Remove display of blue Premium Banners once Premium Features are purchased.
- Simplify the display of the list of existing workouts and include the duration of each workout.
- Improve selection of workout type so that it is chosen once when starting a new workout; the three most recent types of workout you've performed are remembered for ease of access.
- Add "Other exercise" as a workout type option.
- Add workout type and location details to planned workouts.
We are pleased to announce that Heart Graph v4.0 is now available on the App Store, including our new native Apple Watch app:
