Heart Rate is 10% lower than actual pulse rate


Today I measured my resting Heart Rate 10 times with Watch Active2, and I also measured 10 times with 1 min stopwatch by counting method.

The results show that Heart Rate reading from Watch is ~10% lower than actual numbers.


Thank you for participating in the Samsung Developer Forum. I wish I could answer this but this is not the correct forum for end product bug reports, questions or concerns. It is for Samsung 3rd party health developers.

I would recommend you post at https://www.samsung.com → Click on Explore Tab → Click on Community.

Because end user questions disrupt developer discussion this thread will be removed at some point but I’ll leave it open for a short time in case others have suggestions.
