Real Time Heart Data?

Is it possible to get real time heart data from the apple watch? The watchOS book has a great tutorial on getting heart rate data but when the screen goes off you can’t really do anything with the heart data coming in. Essentially what’s needed is to continue to monitor heart rate data with a workoutsession and then based off the data notify the user in real time.

Currently from what I’ve read this probably isn’t possible. It seems the data goes to healthKit on a background thread and then eventually synchronizes. Which is too slow me. But wondering if there’s chance it can be done.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately no, it can’t be done with current software/hardware.

Using a device like the Wahoo TICKR you should be able to make a connection to it with Bluetooth and get raw data that way.

Thanks for letting me know! I appreciate it :slight_smile:
