HeartRate++ a better Heart Rate complication for Apple Watch

Apple Watch has always been one of my favourite Apple product, and it’s the only smartwatch I use on a daily basis.

But it had always one big flaw for me which is not being able to see my current heart rate using the built-in complication, without going into the Heart Rate app.

Apple’s Built-in Heart Rate complication

Apple announced Watch OS 6 last WWDC along with the awesome new SwiftUI, and ability to develop independent Watch apps.

That provided me with a great opportunity to both learn SwiftUI and develop a simple independent watch app that provides me with the heart rate complication I always wished for.

So I created HeartRate++ a simple Heart Rate app that provides you with all the Heart Rate complications you may ever need, plus a simple at-a-glance view to see how your heart rate been doing for the last 12 hours.

When you open the app on your watch it gives you a real-time heart rate measurement as long as it’s open, and the complications update every 10 minutes to give you the most up to date measurement.

Available complications are Modular Corner, Modular Gauge, Utility and Modular. And works with any Apple Watch with Watch OS 6 and above installed.

    1. hi Edward, please open the Watch app on your iPhone and scroll down to “Installed on Apple Watch” and see if the app is listed there.

      If not please open the app store app on your Watch and search for HeartRate++ and click the install button.

      Unfortunately, the app not being installed automatically is a bug in iOS 13.
