See How Accurate is the Heart Rate Monitor on the Apple Watch

Apple Watch has been pretty much the talk of the town as far as the wearables go. The Watch has had relatively higher success than any Android Wear device in the first few weeks of it being released. The comparisons between Apple Watch and Android Wear are pretty much warranted given that they offer largely similar sort of features and capabilities. Though one thing that the initial reviews of the Apple watch have established so far is the fact that the Apple Watches are much more accurate at their game as far as the sensors and their readings are concerned. We had pretty eccentric time with both the Heart rate and step counting on Android Wear but according to a report Apple Watch is as accurate a Heart rate monitor as any.

Mio Alpha vs Apple Watch

Brad Larson – the founder of SonoPlot, has been putting his Apple Watch through the paces and shared an interesting graph of how close to the exact heart rate readings do the Apple Watch produce when compared to Mio Alpha which is possibly the most accurate heart monitor out there. Larson has said that he, “extracted the raw Apple Watch HealthKit heartrate samples after a run and compared it to an HR monitor I had on”. He went on to add that, “aside from the Apple Watch capturing heartrate once per 5 s, and the Mio Alpha every 3 s, the readings are nearly identical. Impressed”
