Heart RateHeart Rate

Active Lifestyle Heart Rate is the pace your heart beats during a low impact activity (such as this biometrics event). This metric shows how hard the heart is working just to do its job. An elevated rate indicates your heart is working harder than it should under non-strenuous conditions.

Exercise! Your heart is a muscle, and just like your biceps, the heart needs to be kept active in order to stay strong. When the heart is strong, it can recover more quickly after strenuous event, and doesn’t have to work as hard to pump fresh blood through the body. Because of their peak physical condition, athletes generally have lower active heart rates – for example, it was once reported that Michael Phelps’ resting heart rate was just 38 beats per minute!
