> HeartBeat Watch Workouts
The HeartBeat watch app includes workouts such as running, cycling, rowing and strength to give you a live feedback of your current heart rate workout zone. Every time you change workout zone you’ll get a subtle haptic tap on the wrist.
The watch app also gives live progress on your calorie burn and whether you’ve hit your HeartBeat workout goals. All indications are colour coded to give a quick and clear indication of your progress.
After your workout you’ll have a 2-minute cool down which automatically starts once you’ve finished. This enables the app to calculate a recovery heart rate which will give an indication of how your fitness is improving over time based on how quick you start to return to a normal heart rate.
Your heartrate zones within the HeartBeat app are broken down as follows:
- VO2 Max Zone (Maximum Effort)
- The Anaerobic Zone
- The Aerobic Zone
- The Fat-Burning Zone
- The Warm-up / Recovery Zone
> HeartBeat Mobile App – Goals
‘You can’t manage what you can’t measure’ – Peter Drucker
What use would a watch application be if you couldn’t see your progress. The HeartBeat mobile application give you a seven-day summary of how you’re doing in your workouts with detailed information displayed through various charts.
The screens all focus on your weekly goals giving you clear and quick information on how you’re performing this week. For more detailed information, you can drill down into individual workouts to see how your heart rate varied over the workout and a workout specific recovery heart rate.
Goals available are as follows:
- Calories burned
- Workout duration
- Workout days
- Workout interval
> General Heart Rate Data
HeartBeat also breaks your daily heart rate down to give you a greater understanding of how your heart rate changes throughout the day.
Your heart rate variability is graphed out over a 56 day period, two four week graphs allowing you to analyse how it’s changing on a month by month basis. The variability of your heart rate can indicate issues such as overworking, over training and stress as well as general heart health.
