Track your heart rate

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

  • LG Watch Sport
  • Huawei Watch 2
  • Montblanc Summit

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