Age=40A lot of variables. Age, physical condition, accuracy of watch with heart rate and knowing if you are resting.
Generally though at rest your heart rate should be 100 bpm or lower. 120 bpm is a good setting for you it would seem. Having a buffer to account for inaccuracies prevents constant notifications which eventually will be ignored. Might want to just relax for a while and check your heart rate if it’s 60 then reducing the alert to 100-110 won’t hurt.
Actually we do but maybe no cardiologist. Non the less it’s true what he says even if he’s no doctor.
Just to clarify this setting is for your "resting" heart rate (when you appear to have been inactive for 10 minutes). For example sitting or laying doing no physical activity for more than 10 minutes.I have my iPhone/AW set to alert me at 120 BPM and to date I have only received alerts while sleeping which happens once in a while with the rare exception to after I had surgery last September.
Medications? That may be the key term. Nonetheless I am waiting to see the nurse at this time.Just to clarify this setting is for your "resting" heart rate (when you appear to have been inactive for 10 minutes). For example sitting or laying doing no physical activity for more than 10 minutes.
There are lot's of things that can cause your resting HR hit 120 or above. Alcohol, medications, watching sports or even while watching a intense movie scene. Oh and yes sleeping. The key is to do something if it "repeats"...
lol I just saying that over 100bpm when in rest, its not a "normal" heartbeat. At first I thought you hit the 120 bpm often when in rest.

If you hit the 120 regularly in your sleep, I'll tell my doctor if I was in your situation but if its just happen one or 2 times, there is nothing to really worry about.
And you started this thread because? If you didn’t want the forum opinions then I wouldn’t ask here. It doesn’t take a doctor to know if a heart rate is “normal”. One can google plenty of excellent sources. Now, what is normal for your may not be normal for everyone else. But my cardiologist would not say 120 if you are lying down is acceptable. Heck, if your pulse is close to 100 at rest, I would personally investigate. My heart rate can be a bit faster than “my normal” at times and the doc can find nothing wrong but it still is way lower than 100 at rest. If my pulse was 120 for more than a minute or so at rest, I would be heading to the hospital...but that is just me.
Physical condition= Overweight. However no physical has suggested my heart is in bad shape.
