    Now that there are no more Glances in WatchOS 3, how do you actually check in your heart rate natively?

    There's a separate app which you could pin to your dock if you use it often.

    So glad to know there will be an app specific for heart rate.

    I wish the Heart Rate Complication would actually show your last taken heart rate reading instead of just the app icon and requiring to tap on it and open the app (even if it is now instant with docked apps)

    Hopefully it's something that is coming in a later beta.

    I've found the UI to be pretty poor...kind of like a mobile site UI.

    Can anyone actually speak to what the new heart rate app will do/show?? I haven't been able to find anything about it from the keynote or developers.

    It's basically the same as before. It shows the last measured heart rate and then the heart icon comes up and it measures your current heart rate and will continue to update about every 5 seconds as long as you keep it open.

    That sucks. I was kind of hoping it would be a little more useful. I don't really understand why it won't show resting heart rate changes and other useful, easy pieces of info. It would help apple compete more with more fitness dedicated devices.

    They updated the health app a lot and that might be the place to go for all the info you need. Plus a few apps do what you want.
