watchOS excels in tracking heart rate. You can take the full advantage of it to set up elevated heart rate on your Apple Watch to get instant notifications whenever it goes beyond the normal level. Follow this hands-on guide to discover how this life-saving feature works:

With watchOS 4, Apple Watch has become far more efficient as a heart rate monitor. Case in point, you can enable elevated heart rate notifications on your Apple Watch to get alerts whenever it goes too high.
