Heart Rate Measurement During an Individual Workout
During a workout, your Huawei Watch GT2 can display your real-time heart rate and heart rate zone, and notify you when your heart rate exceeds the upper limit. For the best training result, you are advised to choose a workout based on your heart rate zone.

The heart rate interval can be calculated based on the maximum heart rate percentage or HRR percentage. To set the heart rate interval calculation method, open the Huawei Health app, go to Me > Settings > Heart rate limit and zones and set Calculation method to either Maximum heart rate percentage or HRR percentage.
Your watch GT2 will display different colors when your heart rate reaches corresponding zones during a workout. The following figure shows how heart rate is displayed during an outdoor run.

Resting Heart Rate Measurement with Huawei Watch GT2
Resting heart rate refers to the heart rate when it is measured in a quiet and relaxed environment when you are awake. It is a general indicator of cardiovascular health.
The best time to measure your resting heart rate is immediately after you have woken up in the morning. Your actual resting heart rate may not be displayed or accurately measured if your heart rate was measured at the wrong time.
To automatically measure your heart rate, enable Continuous heart rate monitoring in the Huawei Health app.
If "--" is displayed as the resting heart rate reading, it indicates that your Huawei Watch GT2 was unable to measure your resting heart rate. In this case, ensure that you measure your resting heart rate in a quiet and relaxed environment when you are awake. It is recommended that you measure your resting heart rate immediately after you wake up in the morning for the most accurate result.

After you start a workout using your watch, your watch will vibrate to alert you that your heart rate value has exceeded the upper limit for more than 10 seconds. To view and configure your heart rate limit, perform the following:
Open the Huawei Health app, go to Me > Settings > Heart rate limit and zones and select your desired heart rate limit. The following figure shows how to set your heart rate limit:
