6 importance of daily heart rate monitoring

Smart Watch With Heart Rate Monitor
We often say that the heart is the energy source of the body, so it is necessary to monitor the heart rate on a daily basis.
In recent years, the health tracking function of wearable devices has been continuously improved, and it has outstanding functions in heart rate, blood pressure monitoring and so on.BP smart watch focus on BP monitoring,HR monitoring and sleep monitoring.
1. Heart rate is different at each age
The secret to a long life, life scientists say, is to let the heart beat as slowly as possible.
Infant period: Generally speaking, the normal heart rate during this period is 100 to 140 beats per minute. During the crying period, the heart rate can even reach 180 beats per minute. During quiet sleep, the heart rate can drop to 70 beats per minute.
Adult period: adult heart development has tended to complete, in this period, the normal human heart rate is generally 75 beats per minute, in the range of 60 to 100 beats per minute is relatively normal, obviously, the adult heart rate is slightly slower than that of infants.
Old Age: In old age, the normal human heart rate is about 70 beats per minute, slightly slower than that of adults, but the difference is not obvious. Many older people suffer from high blood pressure and heart disease, which can be life-threatening when the heart beats too fast or too slow.
In addition, age is the reason for the difference in heart rate, the state of the body will also lead to the difference in heart rate. In general, in adults, when the heart rate exceeds 100 beats per minute, it becomes tachycardia. This can be caused by intense exercise (up to 180 beats per minute), emotional stress, anxiety (up to 100 beats per minute), etc., or it can be caused by the onset of a pathological disease that causes the heart rate to increase.
The heart rate can feedback whether the human body is in a healthy state in time. Whether the heart rate is too slow or too fast, it may threaten life.
2, heart rate indicates the risk of heart disease
For humans, a heart rate of 60 to 90 beats per minute is normal in quiet times, but the optimal heart rate is around 70 beats per minute. One study found that people with heart rates 12 beats per minute faster than normal had a 27 percent higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. This suggests that people should not ignore their heart rate.
3. Heart rate predicts the prognosis of heart disease
The speed and difference in heart rate is an independent predictor of whether a person with heart disease has a life expectancy over the course of a year. Patients whose heart rate was always higher than normal, or whose difference between the fastest and slowest heart rate was small, had a high chance of dying within a year. This suggests that treatments that stabilize and slow the heart rate are directly related to survival.
4. The heart rate suggests whether the amount of exercise is appropriate
The amount of exercise is measured primarily by heart rate. For example, when aerobic exercise is effective and safe, a person's heart rate is 170 minus age, or controlled between 108 and 144.
5. Heart rate is an indication for predicting burnout
Whether a person is tired due to excessive labor or exercise depends on his heart rate the next morning. If his heart rate is more than five beats per minute higher than the previous day, he is considered to be overtired and should adjust the amount of exercise or labor.
6. Heart rate prompts the effect of exercise and fitness
Your morning heart rate can tell you if you're working out. If the heart rate after a period of exercise is more than 5 times/minute slower than before exercise, it is effective. According to experts, usually insist on 3 months of exercise can cause the heart rate to start to drop 4 ~ 5 times/minute.
