There are several ways to check your heart rate with an Apple Watch. It's quickest to trigger Siri and ask, "What's my heart rate?" The heart rate app starts and displays your current heart rate within a few seconds.
The other method of checking your heart rate is to manually start the heart rate app using either the app icon or the heart rate complication watch face

Specifically, the ability to warn you when an atrial fibrillation (AFib) event was discovered, along with thefeature is currently missing in the series 4.
However , at the bottom of one of the presentation slides during the keynote, it notes t The features come on iOS and Series 4 in iOS 12.1 and WatchOS 5.1. These two updates are currently available to developers for beta testing, so it should not be too long before your watch reaches its full potential.
However, there are still two features that you can use on the site, Series 4, or even any Apple Watch running WatchOS 5.
High or low heart rate alarms
If you have an Apple Watch Series 1 ($ 269 at Walmart) or later, WatchOS 5 is compatible and works on your watch. The update adds a handful of new features, including the ability to detect a low heart rate and alert you to it.
To set your heart rate thresholds high or low, open the Watch app on your iPhone and select Heart Rate from the list of settings.
In the Heart Rate section, you can set the limits that prompt the watch to warn you.
For example, if you set the high heart rate alarm to 110 beats per minute (BPM), if your watch detects that your heart beats over 110bpm after you were inactive for 10 minutes, you will receive a warning on the watch , The same applies to the low heart rate setting – if your heart falls below the set threshold for 10 minutes, you will receive a warning.
