Description:Today we’re launching the mRhythmStudy, which is a joint study within the Health eHeart effort at UCSF. The goal of this study is to understand how well heart rate data from the Apple Watch compares with data from medical grade devices, and to invite Apple Watch users to donate their heart rate data to help…
... clearly show you the three most important things to know What s your average resting heart rate Is it within the normal range 60 100 How does it compare to others We let you compare with the average runner biker or couch potato How is it changing over time By default we ll show you your resting heart rate over last month Can Apple Watch save lives We ve been stunned at the quality of heart rate sensor in Apple Watch We think it can help save lives and we ll be asking for your help in a few weeks Please stay tuned What do you want to see in the next version of Cardiogram Tell us email protected Share this Twitter Facebook Google Like this Like Loading March 4 2016 Brandon Ballinger Leave a comment Do you really need 10 000 steps a day We re often told to walk 10 000 steps per day but what is the science behind that Why not 20 000 5 000 Why step count and not the type of exercise intensity or total minutes With the advent of Apple Watch and Android Wear millions of people now have heart rate sensors strapped to their wrist To answer the questions above we analyzed 458 000 000 distinct data points from Cardiogram for Apple Watch Origin of 10 000 Steps Manpo Kei or 10 000 step meter The idea of 10 000 steps originated as a marketing slogan during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics when an athletic company released a pedometer named manpo kei which means 10 000 step meter Unfortunately the clinical evidence is scant while there is some work correlating step count with outcomes like BMI and blood pressure and a set of official activity guidelines no study to date has systematically evaluated dose response effects of different steps day goals Resting heart rate a metric of cardiovascular and overall health Your heart rate while at rest not moving but not necessarily sleeping has been shown to be a strong measure of overall health A Chinese study showed the risk of dying of any illness went down by 9 for every 10 bpm decrease in resting heart rate If your resting heart rate is below 75bpm your chance of sudden cardiac death is halved Even beyond cardiovascular health a resting heart rate of 70bpm reduces your chance of cancer The good news is resting heart rate is highly modifiable Exercise strengthens the heart muscle so that it can pump the same volume of blood with fewer strokes Marathon runners sometimes achieve resting heart rates in the 40 s According to the Mayo clinic a normal resting heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute Among Apple Watch users with Cardiogram installed the median is 76 bpm About eighty percent of us are between 67 and 88 bpm Do you really need 10 000 steps per day These days we re all carrying pedometers iPhone counts your steps using HealthKit Android devices...
