New to Heart Graph? See how to use the app to record new data with your Apple Watch or Bluetooth/ANT+ sensor in this short tutorial. If you already have heart rate data stored in the Health app, you may also find this video useful: Importing data from your Apple Watch.
Looking to view heart rate data you’ve already recorded from your Apple Watch? This tutorial shows you how, but you must ensure that Heart Graph is integrated with the Health app first!

Resting heart rate can give you an indication of your fitness and general health. Heart Graph can record your minimum heart rate, either stopping automatically after 10 minutes, or recording indefinitely (for example to record your heart rate while you sleep); you can then compare this value with other workout statistics.
Once you have data from several workouts recorded in the app, you can compare statistics to spot trends in your training, health and fitness. You may also find it interesting to view resting heart rate values as described in Recording resting heart rate.
If you are recording heart rate data for similar sessions, it can be useful to compare the entire workout graphs, for example to see whether there is a global change in heart rate, or an increase in recovery time between sets.
Once you’ve started using a standard “reference set” in each of your workouts, you can compare your heart rate during this set between sessions. This comparison can help highlight differences in your body, for example improving fitness or the onset of a illness such as a cold.
Heart Graph allows you to design your workouts up-front, and then execute them when you want to do the session, so you don’t have to think about what to do next while you’re exercising.
You’ve designed your own workout plan, or received one via email from a friend – now you want to get on and do the session!
You can choose the details of your own standard “reference set” to suit your workout, for example by having a set of a fixed time, as shown in this video.
