Apple delves into the details of the Apple Watch's heart rate monitor

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><a href='http://www.imore.com/apple-delves-details-apple-watchs-heart-rate-monitor' title="Apple delves into the details of the Apple Watch's heart rate monitor"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_blw/public/field/image/2015/04/apple-watch-back-casing-solo.JPG?itok=nlMUR6jy' />[/url]</p> <p class="intro">Apple has gone into detail about how the heart rate monitor on the Apple Watch works, and how to get the best results from it.</p> <p>The custom heart rate monitor on the back of the Apple Watch helps the device get readings for your daily activity and specific workouts. Apple has launched a new support page detailing how the monitor on the watch works.<!--break--> The technology at work is called photoplethysmography, which uses light to measure the blood flow in your wrist.</p> <p>From Apple:</p>
<p>Apple Watch uses green LED lights paired with light‑sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through your wrist at any given moment. When your heart beats, the blood flow in your wrist — and the green light absorption — is greater. Between beats, it's less. By flashing its LED lights hundreds of times per second, Apple Watch can calculate the number of times the heart beats each minute — your heart rate.</p>
<p>Apple also highlights some tips to get a good reading from the monitor. The fit of your Apple Watch is important. If your watch sits too loosely on your wrist, the heart rate monitor won't be able to get an accurate reading, so Apple recommends a snug fit.</p> <p>The company also notes that things like your environment might impact your reading, based on how much blood flows through your skin. Rhythmic motions like those from running or cycling will give more consistent results than motions from activities such as tennis, where motions are irregular.</p> <p>Source: Apple, via 9to5Mac</p> <div class="devicebox"> <h3>Apple Watch</h3> <div class="video"><div class="video_iframe"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/oSWq43X9S_M?rel=0&amp;autoplay=0&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;controls=2&amp;autohide=1&amp;showinfo=0" width="627" height="353" class="video-filter video-youtube vf-oswq43x9sm" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></div></div> <!--/video--> <ul><li>Apple Watch buyers guide</li> <li>Apple Watch specs</li> <li>Apple Watch FAQ</li> <li>Apple Watch news hub</li> <li>Apple Watch discussion</li> <li>WatchKit FAQ</li> <li>WatchKit best practices</li> </ul></div> <div> <style> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .devicebox { background-color: #5CB8DB; border: 1px solid #E2E9EB; float: right; display: block; margin: 0 0px 10px 10px; max-width: 350px; overflow: hidden; width: 50%; } .devicebox h3 { background: #8D98BD; font-family: "camptonmedium",sans-serif; font-size: 20px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 0; padding: 0; text-align: center; } .devicebox h3 a { display: block; line-height: 30px; padding: 0 10px; } .devicebox h3 a:hover { background: #7e88aa; text-decoration: none; } .devicebox .video { margin: auto; } .devicebox p, .entry-content .devicebox p > img, .devicebox img { margin: 0px; max-width: 100%; padding: 0px; } div .devicebox *, div .devicebox li, div .devicebox a:active, div .devicebox a:hover, div .devicebox a:link, div .devicebox a:visited { color: #fff; } .devicebox a:hover { text-decoration: underline; } .devicebox p, .devicebox ul li, .devicebox ol li { font-size: 16px; padding: initial; } .devicebox ul { margin: 0; padding: 0.5em 1em 1em 30px; } .devicebox ul li { display: list-item; line-height: 24px; list-style: disc outside none; } .devicebox ul li:before { display: none; } .devicebox p ~ p { padding: 0px 15px 15px; line-height: 1.25; } .devicebox p:first-of-type + p { padding: 15px; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox { float: none; margin: 0 auto 30px; max-width: 700px; min-height: 225px; position: relative; width: 100%; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox .video, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox .video { bottom: 0px; left: 50%; position: absolute; right: 0px; top: 30px; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox .video_iframe, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox .video_iframe { height: 100%; padding: 0px; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox h3 + p, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox h3 + p { bottom: 0; left: 50%; overflow: hidden; position: absolute; right: 0; top: 30px; width: 50% } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox h3 + p img, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox h3 + p img { float: right; height: 100%; width: auto; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox ul, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox ul, div *:last-of-type + .devicebox p, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox p { width: 43%; } @media all and (max-width: 500px) { .devicebox { float: none; margin: 0 0 30px; max-width: 100%; width: 100%; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox .video, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox .video { left: 0; position: relative; top: 0; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox .video_iframe, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox .video_iframe { padding-bottom: 56.25%; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox h3 + p, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox h3 + p { left: 0; position: relative; top: 0; } div *:last-of-type + .devicebox ul, div *:last-of-type + div ~ .devicebox ul { width: auto; } } /*--><!]]]]]]><![CDATA[><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> </div></div></div><img width='1' height='1' src='' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
