Apple Watch OS 1.0.1 heart rate recording is not accurate, but you can fix the issue

This may not be the ideal update that many people would have thought. The new Apple Watch OS 1.0.1 seems to have disappointed many people due to many reasons.

The most important reason why Apple Watch OS 1.0.1 has disappointed its users and analysts is the fact that the pricey Apple Watch running the original 1.0 software recorded a user’s heart rate every ten minutes.

But amazingly this is not the case anymore. The Apple Watch users were taken aback with the fact that the heart rate records were no longer being kept as frequently. This was initially thought to be a bug but Apple has now clarified that this is intended behaviour on its website.

apple watchNow the Cupertino based tech giant has come out with its own opinion. The updated website says that ‘Apple Watch attempts to measure your heart rate every ten minutes, but won’t record it when you are in motion or your arm is moving’. The original version of this feature did not care about arm movement. Now users have complained that the original Watch software recorded heart rate without any issues whatsoever and now see the device as losing functionality with the software update.

But things are actually not that bad. You can solve the issue with some fixtures. If you are using the app, you can still start a workout in the Workout app to force continuous heart rate monitoring by the system, which will record heart rate measurements about every ten seconds. The downside to this is that users have to remember to activate this mode explicitly unlike the passive monitoring.
