Exercise heart rate monitoring technology in smart watches

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Exercise heart rate, that is, the state of the heart rate maintained by the human body during exercise. Whether it is aerobic exercise or anaerobic exercise. A proper heart rate can achieve a better exercise effect. Maintaining an optimal exercise heart rate is important for exercise results and exercise safety.

Exercise heart rate is particularly important for people with three highs. If the heart rate is too high, it will be unhealthy, leading to nausea, dizziness, and chest tightness. Diabetes patients will reduce blood sugar sharply, and the fat reduction effect is not good. Low heart rate is right. There is no harm to the body, but the effect of exercise is not good.

During exercise, we have no way to accurately know our heart rate. Just simply know that the heartbeat speeds up and becomes vigorous and powerful. If we don't pay attention to the changes in heart rate, then it is very likely to die suddenly. The current market is that only smart watches and portable heart rate chest straps can dynamically monitor heart rate. At present, major brands in the market are developing their own smart watches, and most of them are biased towards health monitoring functions. The popular Apple watch, HUAWEI watch, and Veepoo Watch RIG in the market are all very biased towards the importance of health.Veepoo is the only manufacturer in the market that mainly focuses on health monitoring functions. At present, Veepoo Watch RIG has been listed overseas and has received a large number of users' likes. In the future, Veepoo Watch RIG will seize more markets

Aerobic metabolism

Just like other organs of the human body, the cardiovascular system can only be improved under a certain intensity of exercise, but this intensity should not be too high, otherwise it will become an anaerobic metabolic exercise. This heart rate range is called the "effective heart rate zone". After mastering the effective heart rate zone, you can control the amount and intensity of exercise yourself when engaging in different exercises.

First, remember the pulse rate at rest. You can feel the heartbeat on the neck (above the collarbone), wrist or directly on the chest, then count for 15 seconds, and then multiply by 4, so that you can know your heart rate at rest.

The second step is to determine the maximum heart rate according to age. Generally speaking, the more careful the age, the higher the rate. The calculation formula is as follows: men's maximum heart rate = 220-age. Women's maximum heart rate = 220-age. Internationally, 220-age is generally used as the maximum heart rate.

Third, determine the effective heart rate range during exercise. For ordinary exercisers, 60%~85% of the maximum heart rate is a suitable and effective exercise heart rate range.

Whether it is aerobic exercise or anaerobic exercise. A proper heart rate can achieve a better exercise effect. The commonly used formula is (maximum heart rate-heart rate before exercise) / 2 + heart rate before exercise. This formula can reflect the heart rate of individuals of different genders and ages. This formula is suitable for aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. Although aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise have different forms of exercise, they can increase the heart rate during exercise.

For example, in gap training involving swimming and other sports, the heart rate is generally controlled within the optimal range of 120-150 beats per minute. The average student’s heart rate during morning exercises and running is controlled at 130-150 beats per minute. And adult fitness can use 170-age to control exercise intensity. So, whether you are doing aerobic exercise or anaerobic exercise, you can use that formula to know your best heart rate during exercise.

Exercise is one of the main ways that are closest to making the heart rate fluctuate greatly, and it is also one of the most prone to cause a series of memory heart diseases. For changes in exercise heart rate, it is most convenient to use a smart watch to monitor. Smart watches only need to be worn on the hand to monitor heart rate. In addition, high-end smart watches may also perform other types of health monitoring, such as ECG, HRV, sleep apnea and so on. In particular, the Veepoo Watch RIG, which is a watch that is very focused on health functions.
