    New to AW3, tried no passcode and noticed no heart rates recorded on the bar graph. Is that a known issue? Seems odd that heart rate monitoring would require a passcode.

    No pass code here, heart rate data is saved and displayed on the graph perfectly.

    So just use a passcode. Is it really that inconvenient to tap out 4 digits once or twice a day? If your iPhone is handy, you don’t even have to do that. Just unlock your iPhone and it will unlock your watch.
