Your Withings Steel HR™ can help you track your heart rate. By default, it takes a heart rate measurement every ten minutes, allowing you to see how your heart rate fluctuates during the day.
You also have the option of using the continuous heart rate mode to get your continuous heart rate, which is especially interesting during a workout session. In this case, a measurement is taken every second. Note that the continuous heart rate mode also enables a timer so that you know exactly how long you’ve been working out.
To make sure your heart rate can be effectively tracked by your Withings Steel HR™, make sure the wristband of your Withings Steel HR™ is tight enough while still remaining comfortable. It should also be worn about a centimeter (or half an inch) away from your wrist bone.
Note that you can position your Withings Steel HR™ on the lower part of your wrist. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the heart rate data, because the product is not aimed to be positioned on the lower part of your wrist.
You can easily launch the continuous heart rate mode before a workout session. To do so, perform the following steps:
- Press the button of your Withings Steel HR™ for about a second until it vibrates.
- The continuous heart rate mode is on
- Press the button until it vibrates again when you want to stop the continuous heart rate mode.
Only the heart rate screen appears on the display of your Withings Steel HR™ when the continuous heart rate mode is on.
Note: The continuous heart rate mode will be activated automatically after 2 minutes of running. It will stop automatically when the running session is over.
