If you are an Apple Watch user, you may receive notifications about high and low heart rates. If our heart rate remains above or below a certain limit (beats per minute, BPM), your Apple Watch can send a notification.
If these notifications appear more often than they should, and you are sure there are no problems with heart rhythm changes (cardiology), you can adjust the notifications so that the respective alerts appear less frequently.
There are two ways to reduce alerts for a high or low heart rate and an irregular heartbeat.
The first system consists of opening the Watch app, selecting “Heart Rate” and from there setting the parameters for high heart rate and low heart rate (between 100 and 150 beats per minute in the first case, and between 40 and 50 beats per minute per second).
Alternatively, you can select the Health app, from here Browse > Heart > Heartbeat and scroll down to the Low heart rate notifications and High heart rate notifications options.
In a resting adult, a normal heart rate is usually between 60 and 100 beats per minute. However, lower heart rates may be normal in young people, especially those who are in good physical condition. A person’s heart rate varies normally based on exertion and stimuli such as pain and anger. The heart rhythm is considered abnormal only if the rate is not fast enough (called tachycardia), slowed down (called bradycardia) or irregular, or when electrical impulses travel along abnormal pathways.
Apple explains that Apple Watch can provide cardiovascular tone estimates by measuring how hard the heart is straining while walking or running outdoors and notifying you when the value is low. Depending on age and gender, cardiovascular tone will fall into one of four of these factors: low, ‘below average’, ‘above average’ or high. If your cardiovascular tone levels are within the Low parameter, you will receive a notification on your Apple Watch. If they remain low, you will be notified every four months.
From the Cardiovascular Tone section of the Health app, measurements of Cardiovascular Tone and the range in which they are located can be viewed.
