This simple app is designed to do one thing well: alert you when your heart rate goes above and back below a BPM threshold you set.
Beat Watcher integrates with the Health app to read your heart rate.
Use this app as a way to listen to your body.
It can be great for:
• recognizing and managing stress
• breathing exercises
• working out
Turn the Digital Crown on Apple Watch to set the desired BPM threshold. Then, you'll hear a sound and feel a vibration when your heart rate goes above the threshold, and a different sound and vibration when your heart rate goes back below the level you set.
Optionally turn on Background Mode to continue getting haptic and audible feedback in response to your heart rate after you drop your wrist or leave the app.
Enable the Persistent Alerts setting to continue getting haptic and audible feedback every two seconds while your heart rate remains above the set threshold.
Note: Background Mode will not work at the same time as a Workout started in another app. For example, if you start Background Mode in Beat Watcher and then start an Outdoor Run Workout in the built-in Workouts app, Beat Watcher will not continue to run in the background.
This app requires watchOS 8 or newer, which requires Apple Watch Series 3 or newer.
• Persistent Alerts: Continue getting haptic and audible feedback every two seconds while your heart rate remains above the set threshold. Enable this setting by tapping your current BPM in the Beat Watcher app on Apple Watch, then tap the Settings button.
