Day by Day, smart wearables such as Smartwatches and Smart fitness bands are getting way smarter with their new fitness features. These features include SpO2 measurement, sleep tracking, and the most popular – heart rate monitoring.

To measure heart rate, Huawei smartwatches come with a heart rate sensor that measures your heart rate in Beats per Minute. Huawei smartwatches also have TruSeen technology, the company introduced it in 2012 in Huawei Lab.

Currently, Huawei Huawei has introduced Huawei TruSeen 4.0, which is advanced in terms of AI algorithms and neural network processing to provide better and clearer heart rates.

The TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring technology and sensor enable the smartwatch to monitor the user’s heart rate even in the background. Not only is it energy-efficient, but the smartwatch also intelligently adjusts the interval between reading according to the user’s activity levels, keeping a 24-hour record of the user’s heart rate variability and resting heart rate.

Heart rate measurement

  • Keep your arm still and wear your watch correctly.
  • From the home screen press the Up button, swipe until you find Heart rate. Touch Heart rate. The watch will then measure your current heart rate.
  • To pause the heart rate measurement, swipe right on your watch screen. It usually takes approximately 6 to 10 seconds to display the first measurement value (1 to 2 seconds if Continuous heart rate monitoring is enabled in the Huawei Health app and MONITORING MODE is set to Real-time), and the data updates every 5 seconds afterward. A complete measurement takes approximately 45 seconds to complete.

Note:

  • To guarantee a more accurate heart rate measurement, wear the watch correctly and ensure the strap is fastened. Make sure that your watch is secure on your wrist. Ensure that the watch body is in direct contact with your skin without any obstructions.
  • This measurement may also be affected by some external factors such as low ambient temperatures, arm movements, or tattoos on your arm.

Setting the heart rate zone calculation method

The heart rate interval can be calculated based on the maximum heart rate percentage or HRR percentage. To set the heart rate interval calculation method, open the Huawei Health app, go to Me > Settings > Heart rate limit and zones, and set the Calculation method to either Maximum heart rate percentage or HRR percentage.

Note:

  • If you select Maximum heart rate percentage as the calculation method, the heart rate zone for different types of workout activities (Extreme, Anaerobic, Aerobic, Fat-burning, and Warm-up) is calculated based on your maximum heart rate (“220 – your age” by default). Heart rate = Maximum heart rate x Maximum heart rate percentage.
  • If you select HRR percentage as the calculation method, the heart rate interval for different types of workout activities (Advanced anaerobic, Basic anaerobic, Lactic acid, Advanced aerobic, and Basic aerobic) is calculated based on your heart rate reserve (HRmax – HRrest). Heart rate = Heart rate reserve x Heart rate reserve percentage + Resting heart rate.
  • The heart rate zone calculation methods, while you are running, are not affected by the settings in the Huawei Health app. For most running courses, HRR percentage is selected by default.

Your watch will display different colors when your heart rate reaches corresponding zones during a workout.

Measuring your heart rate during a workout

  • After you start a workout, swipe on the watch screen to check your real-time heart rate and heart rate zone.
  • After completing your workout, you can check your average heart rate, maximum heart rate, and heart rate zone on the workout results screen.

In this case, ensure that you measure your resting heart rate in a quiet and relaxed environment when you are awake. It is recommended that you measure your resting heart rate immediately after you wake up in the morning for the most accurate result.
