Heart Analyzer is a great third-party app that allows you to see incredible detail from Apple Watch heart rate readings. In an update today, the app has added live heart rate support, improved complications for Series 4 users, and more.

With support for live heart rates, Heart Analyzer will now record your heart rate in real-time when you have the app open. This allows you to get detailed information about your heart rate at specific times, and view trends and graphs over time.

Further, the Heart Analyzer app for Apple Watch also now displays your recent workouts. Here, you can see a detailed heart rate graph with minimum, maximum, and average data points.

For Apple Watch Series 4 users, there are improved complication options. For instance, on the Infograph Modular face you can now see detailed heart rate graphs with hourly vertical grid lines. Here’s the full changelog for today’s update:
