A heart rate watch is often equipped with an optical HR sensor.

Track your data in real-time and stay on top with your wellbeing. The watch keeps you motivated and supports you in taking a step towards a more active lifestyle.

How does optical heart rate measuring work?

Most of today’s wrist heart rate monitors use an optical HR technology which is also called PPG. PPG measures the amount of light that your bloodstream reflects. When your heart beats it sends blood to your wrist. The LED of your watch recognizes the difference in the amount of blood in your wrist and is able to use this knowledge for measuring your heart rate. One of the most advanced brands for HR monitor technology is Valencell, which is widely used for example in the watches of Suunto.
