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.
Today we released Heart Graph v5.1 with improved support for resting heart rate:
- You can now automatically read resting heart rate samples from Health, which will be displayed in a graph on the “Compare Statistics” screen
- When recording a resting session, the minimum heart rate will be written to Health for sharing with other apps
- You can now add text annotations during resting sessions
- We’ve added a minimum heart rate alarm that can be configured to sound if your heart rate drops below a specified value
We hope you like our new app icon!
We are pleased to announce that Heart Graph v4.0 is now available on the App Store, including our new native Apple Watch app:
- See a graph of your heart rate on your wrist during your workouts
- Record resting heart rate directly from the Watch
- View heart rate zones on the Watch in real-time during your workout
- Quickly review up to 12 hours of recent heart rate data in the History view
We’ve also been making improvements to the main app itself, building on the successful release of Heart Graph v3.10:
- New Apple Watch mode to simplify the UI for Apple Watch users
- New Analysis button for analysing heart rate zone data aggregated over days, weeks or months
- Add AirDrop support for transferring workouts between devices
- You can now long press on a workout in the list to export to AirDrop or Dropbox
- Simplification of Home screen - all comparison features are now behind the Compare Workouts button
- Audio improvements for volume and Bluetooth headphones
- Minor bug fixes and enhancements
