when i finish with workout, there is no heart rate data in activity.. i can se watch normal measuring while swimming. I can se average heart rate in activity and there is also measuring normal in health..
there is heart rate data when i run, outdoor cycle or weight lifting...

I try to reset watch, make three swim workouts and still no graph.

Interesting is if i trasnform from healthfit to strava or mapmyrun, there is heart rate graph... any suggestions?

Is your watch on tight enough? It’s not too loose for it to register underwater is it?
You were right.. i tried to tighten for 1 more hole and later i had heart rate chart.. but i had mark on wrist because it was so tight.. but it's ok because it's not for long time..

It's not getting enough readings to show a chart. Strava shows a chart anyway, but you'll notice it will be very blocky as it will be repeating readings in order to display the charts.

I make sure to only have 1 app open at a time that uses the heart rate (activity, heart rate, workout, etc.) I'll close everything but workout when I go to the gym, as I sometimes too get this.

With swimming I don’t think it has anything to do with other apps but the slippery nature of water that makes the hard work for the watch to register our heart rate.

In this case I guess HRM will be really helpful (if water doesn’t create problem for Bluetooth). I know mine is water proof but have never tested it.
