With this Apple Watch trick you will know if you are training well

Así será la revolución de Salud en iOS 11 y WatchOS 4: control de diabetes, entrenamientos y mucho más

Como ya sabréis, en watchOS 4 se introdujeron una serie de mejoras a la hora de medir la frecuencia cardiaca, dejando atrás la simple app que tenían las anteriores versiones para empezar a proporcionar estadísticas mucho más detalladas para los usuarios. Sin embargo, algunas de ellas permanecen ocultas hasta que utilizas la app de Ejercicio o de Respirar, por lo que es posible que hayan pasado desapercibidas para muchos de los usuarios habituales del reloj.

Como os imaginaréis ya, una de esas estadísticas es precisamente el registro de la frecuencia cardiaca minutos después de realizar cualquier tipo de actividad. Además de el clásico registro que el reloj hace durante el ejercicio, ahora también se mantiene activo dos minutos después de finalizar la actividad con el fin de seguir la fase de recuperación, que se muestra con un apartado aparte dentro de la app de frecuencia cardiaca.

Para poder acceder a este registro, primero tendréis que haber realizado cualquier tipo de actividad , no importa si se trata de una carrera o de un paseo ligero, y procurad que el reloj lo haya medido correctamente. En mi caso, por ejemplo, he realizado algo de ejercicio de intervalos de alta intensidad, asi que mi frecuencia ha subido bastante rápido, de forma que se nota la bajada a la hora de medir la recuperación en tan poco tiempo.

If there is one thing that allows us to always remember that results are not immediate, as technology has led us to believe throughout all this time, it is physical activity, every sport that keeps us busy and gives us that strong and pleasant feeling of having done something worthwhile. It is well known by all that, in this kind of things, the normal thing is that our progress is a little slow , and that we are improving slowly but without pause.

However, one thing that many don’t realize is that it’s not just the time we spend training that matters. Among many other factors, it is also interesting to look at the time it takes us to recover after each training session, the time it takes our heart to return to its normal rhythm, which depending on our physical shape, will be greater or lesser, the latter being the case when it comes to knowing if we are really having an improvement.

Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that it won’t take long to recover the same if we do different physical activities, so it’s not always going to have the same importance, and we have to distinguish these differences, but, in any case, we should be able to know the recovery time if we really want to know if our body is getting better or not. And for that, our best companion is the Apple Watch, thanks to one of the novelties included in the latest version of WatchOS.

Once you have been working out with your watch, then you will have to wait a couple of minutes to get the full graph, and then access the heart rate app from the watch, and then go to the menu by touching the arrow at the top left. In the menu, you will have to look for the recovery section , which will be found just after the physical activity log.

In this recovery section you will enter a graph with the monitoring that the sensor has done of your frequency after the training. You will also see a small message indicating the difference from the end of the activity, first one minute later and then two minutes later. In this example, it is not as obvious as if it was a long race of several kilometers, and my ability to recover is disastrous, but you can get an idea.

I’m sure that if you pay attention to these details after every training, you will be able to see much better how your body progresses , and how your heart gets stronger with every minute of activity you do. Remember, however, that you must be aware of your own limits, something that this statistic will also help you with, and which we hope you will always keep in mind. We don’t want the high frequency alarm on the clock to go off

And you, did you know this feature of your watch?
