The Apple Watch is fairly inconsistent measuring my heart rate when doing resistance exercises. Seems it picks up best when the strap is pushed further up the arm, but it slides down during exercise. What I end up with is a heart rate graph that goes up and down (red line) whereas in reality it probably follows the trend of the upper green dots (yellow line).
So I was hoping to get an external heart rate monitor that sync’d with the Apple Health data but preferably also the Exercise tracking (and calorie counting) features of the Apple Watch. Anyone have any thoughts on what’s best?
IMore had a review and recommended the Scosche green + red light forearm strap, but this had many bad reviews on Amazon. The Polar H10 and Wahoo TICKR impedance chest straps require other apps and I cannot tell if the Apple Watch will integrate data from this.
I just don’t want to be cheated out of closing my Move ring!
