The all new Apple Watch has some unique new health and fitness features that help you stay motivated in achieving your fitness levels. An innovation in the world of wearable technology, this tech watch can monitor your heart rate, measure your steps and calories burnt and keep a track of your workouts. Whether you are aiming to lose weight and or gain cardio, the Activity, Workout and Health apps in an Apple Watch can help you do all of it.
Check your heart rate
The Apple Watch has a custom heart rate sensor to monitor your heart rate. As long as the user wears the Apple Watch, it will automatically measure and log your heart rate every ten minutes. All data related to your heart rate will be then sent to the Health app on your iPhone. It will occur more frequently during your workout sessions, helping you check your intensity level. However, the user can always make adjustments in the settings.
You can always see your heart rate on the Apple Watch in the Heart Rate Glance, where your heart beat is already present by default. In case the user removes it, he will be required to add it back for him to manually check his heart rate. Simply tap on Glances to add Heartbeat glance again.
View your Activity levels
The Activity app on your Apple Watch will keep a track of the time you spend sitting, moving and exercising. Each of the three activities is represented by three different colored rings – Stand Ring, Move Ring and Exercise Ring.
Here inside the Activity app you will be able to view how far you have reached towards your goal. The aim obviously is to meet the goals for which you will have to stand for at least a minute each hour for 12 hours, exercise for 30 minutes and achieve your daily calorie goal. The Activity app basically acts like a visual snapshot of your daily activity, allowing you to check your progress rate whenever you want.
Set a calorie goal activity
To stay fit with the Apple Watch, you will have to set personal goals for yourself. The built-in Activity app on this tech wear allows the user to set calorie burning goals on a daily basis. The user can meet goals by keeping a track of the Activity levels and act accordingly. You will have to begin from a starting goal. Upon successful completion, the rings of the Activity app will come closer to form a full circle.
Remember the goal is applicable only for active calories and not resting ones. Also the calorie goal can be adjusted anytime but the exercise and stand goals remain static.
Track your workout sessions
With your Apple Watch the user can log all types of workouts right there on his wrist.
Whether you are running on the treadmill or jogging in the park, or going out for a late evening walk with your pet, the Apple Watch on your wrist is going to calculate each and every move of yours. It will record the entire session and accumulate all details like heart rate, distance, time and others after which it will transfer the data to the Health and Activity apps on your iPhone.
