wrist heart rate measuring technology
This wristwatch fitted with Garmin optical heart rate sensing technology can provide users with accurate heart rate data at any time.
The heart rate's varying frequency is determined by the activity strength of the user. When you wear the Garmin optical heart rate wrist watch to start an activity, the optical heart rate sensor will continuously monitor the heart rate condition for the specified activity period and constantly provide feedback.
Heart rate A powerful exercise strength monitoring tool
The heart is the center of all activities. Monitoring heart rate is more than just understanding your health condition. Understanding the physiological meaning presented by each different heart rate zone can effectively help you plan a good and reasonable fitness goal.
What is so-called "jogging" ? Let your heart rate tell you.
Is it fast or slow if you take 6 minutes to run a kilometer. Whom shall I be compared with? The physical capability varies highly with each person. The speed and time are not accurate indicators for training. The heart rate can objectively measure how hard you work.
From good marathon athletes to office workers who are sedentary in offices, they can really and effectively work on their exercise strength through heart rate training.
Is there really a so-called "Fat burning heart rate zone" ?
When the exercise central rate is between 65% to 79% of your maximum heart rate, if you feel slightly out of breath but are still working out easily, this is the strength at which the body can truly increase the fat burning efficiency. If the exercise strength is too high, the body will first use glycogen and instead it will not produce energy by using fat. The heart rate training can help you find your "fat burning zone" and effectively help your weight loss plan.
24/7 heart rate monitoring
The optical heart rate sensor fitted with Garmin Elevate can keep on monitoring 24/7. You can check the heart rate variation each day and the heart rate condition during exercise. Easily keep track of your heart beat each time.
How to measure the resting heart rate
Choose one morning with a good night's sleep and sit up at rest for one minute. Then, after one minute, the minimum value displayed on your watch is your resting heart rate.
How to measure the maximum heart rate
The commonly used formula "220 - age" for the maximum heart rate represents statistically the maximum heart rate on average for people of the same age, which can be used for reference. If your physical capability permits, it is recommended that you take the 3-km full speed test or the uphill dash to accurately obtain your personal maximum heart rate.
