Resting heart rate

Lately my smart watch is telling me that my RHR is on avg in the high 80ies. And normal walking etc makes it between 100 and 110. I am not sick, but have left the gym for a while now.

Usually, my RHR used to be 57 to 65.

Should I be worried?

Other conditions are constant, like stress level etc.

    Seems pretty high. I would consult.

      High 80s is bad, particularly if it's abnormal.

    That no nut November is really taking its toll.

    Get a high quality ecg and see if you have strong T waves. Some "cheap" ECG devices misinterpret the repolarization (the T wave) as a beat, and can give you false higher readings.

    That is really high, you should check with your primary care physician, get exercise and improve your diet, which is the hardest for me. I got an Apple Watch recently too and those numbers are workout levels for me! Granted I also go to the gym 4-5 times per week and am on the leaner side. Sleeping heart rate is low 40s, resting and at work usually 50s-60s and workouts hit 155. And yes I know I workout late at night and I’m trying to fix this terrible habit.

      Is working out late at night bad?

    Happened to me after full-time desk job. About same RHR, then went into 75-85 just lying down. All the free food + deskjob and no exercise.

    Whenever I exercise consistently (for a couple months), RHR drops down to low 60s-70s.

    Blood pressure was always in normal range. But obvious my cardio suffered greatly.

      It is high, and strangely the diastolic is always higher

      Look up normal range for blood pressure. If your diastolic is consistently high, go see a doc

    You are fine and healthy. Check your blood pressure but to be honest you are probably fine. Stop stressing out and go have fun haha. I work in hospital.

    If you aren’t going to the gym and are not eating healthily I can see why it’s in the 80s. It’s still within normal adult range but you should hit the gym.

      The thing that’s of concern is that OP has noticed their RHR increasing significantly over time. This calls for a doc visit.
