Pebble 2+ Heart Rate as mentioned before come with Heart Rate sensor which monitors the heart rate while doing various physical activities. Also, Pebble Health app for smartphone comes with further functionality. Moreover, there is an inbuilt Workout app.
The official blog read – “Pebble Health automatically detects long walks, runs, and naps, feeding you a performance summary when you’re finished. Dive deeper into your stats with beautiful in-app graphs. Tap and drag on your mobile graphs for targeted views of your step and heart rate stats at specific times.
