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.
- 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.
- Amazon / ProductThe90sKidmoreThat 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.
- Cruise Automation moccaHappened 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.

- Yelp DobermanIf 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.
