    Depending on what kind of shape you are in a more unfit person can well exceed 100bpm by just walking around. That same person would not likely see 39 for a resting HR as that is low even for a fit person. Most likely your watch missed some beats and indicated 39 in error.

    It does not sound like you have kept track and knowing your HR is a good thing. I would also recommend a good blood pressure monitor to use daily. too.

    I wouldn't worry. My resting heart rate is around 50bmp. It drops to around 40 when I'm mega relaxed or sleeping. It often goes up to around 120 during the day when I'm doing moderate activity like carrying a heavy bag up a few flights of stairs. Mine can also shoot up when I'm nervous or stressed. I was on my way to see a very difficulty client the other day and it reached 100 when I was just driving.

    My highest when I've not been exercising is almost 160 and that was during sleep after I had a lot to drink. Hate to think what was going on in my body!

    I've just been looking at the data on my phone and my rate was 117 at one point when I was sitting watching tv on Sunday night. It was 59 ten minutes later.

    Don't worry!:)

    Perhaps I was watching a particular thrilling bit of Downton Abbey.:)

    Be sure you are wearing the strap correctly. Read here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204666

    When I golf, I seem to lose the heart rate about 2-5 times in 2 hours and sometimes it shows the last weight when it lost connection and other times it drops to 40-50 range. If I run or walk, I never lose my heart rate but I've experimented with the best location to place the watch. About 1/2 to an inch from the wrist bone. Works perfectly but golfing can make it slide.

    If the watch loses a pulse, it drops way down or stays steady at the last weight. I wouldn't worry about it. Just find the best spot to wear it.
