Track your heart rate with your watch

You can use a Wear OS watch to take heart rate measurements. In the Google Fit app, you can track your heart rate for a workout or over time.

Important: Fit won’t save heart rate data for children under 13 (or the applicable age in your country).

Get started

To monitor your heart rate, you need a watch with a heart rate sensor. Some examples include:

  • LG Watch Sport
  • Huawei Watch 2
  • Montblanc Summit
  • Fossil Q Control
  • Misfit Vapor

You can also use a Bluetooth heart rate sensor, like a chest strap.

  3. Tap Microphone Microphone.
    • If your watch doesn’t show this option, press and hold the Power button.

Check your daily heart rates

On your watch:

  1. If the screen is dim, tap it to wake up the watch.

Fix a heart rate monitor that’s not working

If your heart rate monitor isn't working, try these steps:

  1. Tighten the watch strap around your wrist, or adjust the fit of your Bluetooth sensor.
  2. Make sure the back of the sensor completely touches your skin.
  3. Keep still. Sometimes, moving makes the sensor inaccurate.

Important: The heart-rate functions are not medical devices, and are intended for informational purposes only. Consult a physician before you begin a new fitness or nutrition program.
