    Exercise Pulse is the first app directed at tracking workouts specifically from Apple's Apple Watch Workout App! See your heart rate and optimize your workouts! Our heart rate can explain a lot about our workouts — Exercise Pulse calculates your Target Heart Rate and measures how intense/efficient each of your workouts is, allowing you to optimize future workouts towards your goals. Want to lose weight? Staying within the Medium Intensity for you heart rate may optimize this. Want more strength? High Intensity may be your zone.

    Furthermore, Exercise Pulse provides detailed summaries of each of your workouts including calories, distance, and durations in one view so you can also easily track trends over time. View quick weekly trends at a Glance from your Watch so you can maintain your goals.

    Thank you, you probably won't be able to because promo code users usually can't leave reviews. Any feedback here is appreciated though!

    No more promo codes in the foreseeable future, also sadly individuals with promo codes are not permitted to leave reviews.

    This is a great app! Awesome use of already collected data - I now know that I'm pushing to hard for most of my runs.

    Great work :)

    That's awesome you are getting a great use and better understanding of your workouts! When developing it can be hard to test every individual heart. Also was surprising that Apple doesn't by default do anything with Target Heart Rates they can explain so much about our exercise.

    I use the Activity and Health Apps daily but find them very limiting.
    Absolutely nothing against this App but as there currently are no reviews on the App Store this makes the App outside my purchase limit (£0.79) of "buy and take a chance".
    I'm therefore looking for reviewers to come forward with their personal opinions. Thanks.

    I feel like it's limited in use. I can see my heart rate graph, which is great. Something that Apple doesn't have for some dumb reason. I like that it separates the zones.

    I wish I was able to link with other info. Speed, altitude... Something. Also on the app, I can only see a 7 day average but that issue could be a WatchOS 2 thing...

    ^^^^ Hmm. Speed might be a useful tie-in, but not all exercises have any speed, either (aerobics, weights, etc). Altitude wouldn't apply without at least a GPS and map reference.

    Then again, I've lived without those chunks of data when I use my Garmin minus GPS or HR. I wonder if Apple decided to leave out the potential for speed/altitude data since users would start whining* when it went missing.

    (* Here's a side thought/theory: Apple products are so easy to use, and so popular, that even complete idiots can use them every day, which unfortunately means that some users are… uh… idiots. ;) Garmin fitness watch users tend to be self-selected as tech-savvy and more likely to understand data omission)

    To your credit these limitations are really not any of your fault but more from Apples imposed limitations.

    For example, I use my Apple Watch when I go cycling for tracking heart rate and overall workout. But then I also use my Wahoo app to connect to my REFLKT+ on the bike for speed/altitude/temp/cadence. I'm hoping that eventually these two can talk to each other and I can see my HR on the REFLKT unit and not have to rely on looking at my wrist for HR.

    I will note from its design standpoint, and the current capabilities of the Apple Watch — the app is really geared towards cardio workouts as this is what works best with target heart rates and intensity zones. These happen to coincide with workouts Apple gives you options for in the in Apple Watch app as well.

    If you have any direct questions about what the app can do or can't, please let me know.
