UP3 and UP4 each use multi-sensor technology to measure both your resting and passive heart rate for a holistic view of your heart. Measured once per day before you wake up, resting heart rate is one of the best indicators of overall heart health, while passive heart rate is measured throughout the day when your body is still and shows how your heart responds to daytime stress, caffeine and other stimuli.
Resting Heart Rate
Your resting heart rate is the amount of times your heart beats each minute while your body is completely at rest. UP measures your resting heart rate before you wake up, move or eat.
Resting heart rate is looked to as a consistent indicator of heart health. Over time, your resting heart rate trend helps provide valuable insight into your heart’s overall health.
Passive Heart Rate
Passive heart rate is measured throughout the day while your body is still. It connects the dots between your lifestyle, daily routine and heart health.
Your passive heart rate helps to make you aware of the effect that hydration, sleep, stress and other factors have on your heart.
Smart Coach and Heart Health
Smart Coach uses resting and passive heart rate as benchmarks for gauging your heart's health. As Smart Coach compiles your heart rate measurements, it recognizes trends and notifies you of any significant changes.
