Checking your heart rate

Use the built-in heart rate monitor in UA Band to check your current heart rate.
  1. On the Home screen, swipe left or right until you get to the Heart rate screen.
  2. Wait to get a reading. It can take up to a few seconds.

What can I do if my heart rate can't be detected?

Try these steps to troubleshoot the issue:
  • Keep your arm and wrist steady while your heart rate is being measured.
  • Make sure that UA Band is sufficiently charged. Heart rate detection is disabled when the battery falls below 5%.
  • Check if there's any dust or dirt on the heart rate monitor sensor. Wipe it with a damp cloth, and then wipe it dry.
  • If the temperature is cold, do some warm up exercises first before measuring your heart rate. Cold weather will affect your blood circulation and therefore make it more difficult for the sensors to measure your heart rate.
  • Make sure that you're wearing UA Band properly. For more information, see Wearing your UA Band. Try wearing UA Band on your other arm as well.
