It takes mines about a good 18-20 seconds to get my heart rate from glances.
Seems a bit slow no?
When I go to see it in glances, it takes about 2 seconds before it starts saying "measuring..." and then it takes about 15 seconds before it's displayed. Since it is measuring beats per minute, I assume it needs some time to calculate the current HR.
Yes agreed. Longer than I would have guessed.
Yes about 15 secs or so for me. I thought it would be faster.
How long does a CNA take to check your pulse?
(I'll tell you - it's a minimum of 15 seconds, but usually 30, and they multiply by 2 (or 4))
i feel like auto checking heart rate is kind of off to the normal open glance and check. how are your measurements?
About 15 seconds sounds about right... you need at least that long to get a heart rate that makes sense.
When using the workout app, it samples the HR every 5 seconds. My Mio LINK optical wrist HR monitor samples every second. If I have my Mio Link paired with my Watch the HR glance updates instantly.
Agreed, it takes longer than it I would expect.
yeah, its between about 18-20 seconds, and I think it's probably trying to hit 20 seconds since that would be an easier BPM cal to do..HR recorded X 3..
Probably gives a better reading than one that does it faster.
As a nurse, I usually count for 15 seconds, but if it's irregular I go a full minute. It takes time. Relax.
I think they are going for accuracy.
I have just done 7 back to back samples of my Moto 360 heart rate via Google Fit and compared it to my very accurate Reebok chest strap HR monitor.
All 7 samples averaged out to between 20 and 27 seconds. All 7 samples were within 1-2 beats of my chest strap monitor. While I do not have an Apple Watch to do this with, I would say that 15-20 seconds on the Apple Watch is actually slightly quicker than the competitors.
