    I’m not seeing the recovery heart rate on the watch after doing workouts. Anyone know is this a feature I need to turn on? Anyone else able to see them?

    I just see Current, Resting, Walking Average, Breathe (if I use it)

    I don't have the resting heart rate either. Is it only on Series 3 ( I have Series 1 )

    I have it on my series 1 watch. It was not initially super obvious. If you run the heart rate app and see a “current” tab at the top, press it.

    I am having the same problem. I do not see resting heart rate, only recovery heart rate.

    It's showing on my Series2. Open the Heart Rate app, spin the crown.

    I have a Series 0. When I go into the Data Sources & Access for Resting Heart Rate, I see no available Data Sources.
    For Heart Rate my Apple Watch appears as a Data Source.

    It's strange that this would require new hardware, so I'm wondering if there is something else going on here.

    Is it actually giving you readings? If so, then something is amiss for those of us not seeing any readings in this category. Maybe I will post something to Apple.

    Of course I can get a sense of my resting heart rate by looking at my stats at times of the day when I'm inactive. I'm usually resting at around 65 to 72 bpm. I'm actually much more intrigued by the Elevated Heart Rate Notification, which detects a heart rate that rises above a threshold you set while you appear to have been inactive for 10 minutes. Rapid resting heart rates (tachycardia) can have many causes, including stress and anxiety. People who experience frequent episodes should consult their doctor to make sure something less benign is not the cause. In an adult a resting heart rate over 100bpm would be considered tachycardia. Having the Apple Watch alert you to these episodes can help you get a sense for when and how frequently they happen. It also allows you to record some information about what you were doing when it occurred. All this information could be very useful to your doctor.

    So I just realized this thread was originally about RECOVERY heart rate, and not RESTING heart rate. I see I'm not the only one, but apologies for hijacking the thread. That said, the absence of one might have something in common with the absence of the other?

    wow so some people see recovery and/or resting and vice versa, seems not consistent.

    I was actually talking to a Senior Advisor on the Support chat earlier today as I'm not seeing the resting heart rate on my Series 0 watch. He had no idea why this was happening but his (Series 1) was also affected, as well as other colleagues of his. He said Apple haven't documented that the feature shouldn't work on older models and told me he might need to send an enquiry to the engineers about the problem.

    The series 0 watches do not support the resting and recovery heart rates. Those features are just for series 1 and above. I can see the resting heart rate on my new S3 watch and I could see it on my S2 before that, but I haven’t seen the recovery heart rate yet on either watch, however, I suspect that may be because I really haven’t worked out with either watch since the upgrade. I have had some reasonably strenuous activity and I would have hoped that it might have been able to get a reading from that, but I wonder if you need to actually start a workout with the watch before it will calculate the recovery heart rather. I’ll probably try that later today to see if that helps.

    Okay so now it works on series 1
    I confirmed it, i dont know what’s the difference with yesterday and the day before

    1. You have to start a workout hence the name recovery hr
    2. I tried on outdoor walk, outdoor run and other, all working
    3. On the watch it will only shows the 1st and 2nd min recovery
    4. For more data you can open you activity—>open your workout

    Hope this helps
