How to ensure the best possible performance of optical wrist heart rate?
Optical heart rate measurement from the wrist is an easy and convenient way to track your heart rate. To get the best results, it's important to keep in mind factors that may affect heart rate measurement:
*The watch must be worn directly against your skin. No clothing, however thin, can be between the sensor and your skin.
*The watch may need to be higher on your arm than where watches are normally worn. The sensor reads blood flow through tissue. The more tissue it can read, the better.
*Arm movements and flexing muscles, such as gripping a tennis racket, can change the accuracy of the sensor readings.
*When your heart rate is very low, the sensor may not be able to provide stable readings. A short warm up of a few minutes before you start the recording helps.
*The optical sensor may not provide accurate heart rate readings for swimming activities.
*For highest accuracy and quickest responses to changes in your heart rate, we recommend using a compatible chest heart rate sensor such as Suunto Smart Sensor. Using a heart rate belt will enable getting heart rate readings also when mounting the watch on the handlebar of a bike or wearing it on top of a sleeve.
