How does a watch with a heart rate monitor measure your pulse?
A watch with a heart rate monitor features a sensor mounted on the inside of the strap that records blood flow, or heart rate. Consequently, the watch monitors and measures your heart rate and sends information to the smartwatch in case of irregularities. The sensors usually use LED lights to optically monitor your heart rate - they measure the light scattered by blood flow. Thus, it can be said that heart rate measurement is a fairly advanced feature.
