How can I install Welltory on my Apple Watch?

You only need to upgrade to the 4.0.0 version of Welltory and have an Apple Watch model running watchOS 7 or later. The watch app will download automatically, and you'll see it on your watch's home screen and in the Watch app on your phone.

If you don’t see the app there, then it probably failed to download. In that case, try the following:

  • Check that your watch has watchOS 7 or later — go to Apple Watch SettingsGeneralAboutVersion.

  • Check that you have the latest version of Welltory on your phone — 4.0.0 or later. If you don’t, please upgrade.

If you have watchOS 7 or later and Welltory 4.0.0 or newer, but still don’t see Welltory on your watch, try installing it manually:

  • Open the standard Watch app, scroll down to see Available apps and choose Welltory. Tap on Welltory and make sure that the Show App on Apple Watch switch is on.

If nothing works, there’s something else you can do:

  • Reinstall the Welltory app on your phone.

  • Turn off your phone and turn it on again.

If you’re still having trouble installing the app, send us a report. Go to MenuSettingsReport a problem, describe the issue, and press Upload.

What the Welltory app for Apple Watch can do

The Welltory app for Apple Watch can do the following:

  1. Show you heart rate variability (HRV) insights from the latest measurement.

  2. Track workouts and show which heart rate zone you’re currently in. We calculate heart rate zones based on your personal metrics.

  3. Install unique watch faces by the Welltory design team on your watch — the watch faces will feature your latest HRV insights, activity rings, as well as Mindfulness and Workout app buttons for quick access to measurements and workouts.

We’re going to keep improving the app and adding more features.

Can I take measurements with Welltory for Apple Watch?

To take measurements, you need a Breathe or Mindfulness app on your watch. You won’t be able to take measurements from your watch without them.

To take a reading with your watch:

  1. On your watch, open Breathe or select Breathe in Mindfulness, depending on your watchOS version.

  2. Set the timer to 3-5 minutes.

  3. Relax and breathe naturally, ignoring the prompts and alerts. This way, your heart rate pattern will more accurately reflect how you're feeling.

  4. Check out the results on your watch or in your feed.

  5. Go to the Welltory app on your phone after the measurement to update the measurement results on your watch.

You can also take readings with your camera phone — the results will also appear on the watch. Read more about taking measurements with your phone’s camera in this article.

Why workouts with Welltory are more effective than standard Apple Watch workouts

Most importantly, unlike the default Apple Watch workout app, we show which of your personal heart rate zones you’re currently in and let you know when you enter a different zone.

This helps you adjust the intensity of your workouts depending on your goals — for example, if you run to lose weight, you need to spend more time in the Fat Burn zone. But that’s not all — during your workout, Welltory also shows you the time, heart rate, calories, and other metrics.


  • Your heart rate zones are calculated based on your maximum heart rate, age, resting heart rate, and other data.

    The zones are re-calculated daily, so the more you use Welltory, the better the accuracy of your zones.

    It’s especially useful if you have a specific goal and need to kick-start a particular process within your body — be it fat burn, muscle growth, or something else. Thus, with zones, you’ll see results way faster, whether it’s increasing your cardiorespiratory endurance, working on your heart health, or building muscle.

    Read more about all the calculations and benefits of personalized heart rate zones in this article.

  • We'll notify you about your workout intensity with gentle sounds and vibrations. During cyclical workouts, such as walking, running, or swimming, you'll feel the tap each time you enter or leave any zone. In all other cases, you will feel a vibration every time your heart rate goes up to the Light or the Peak zone.

  • For extra emphasis on the Peak zone, we added a slightly more feelable haptic tap that will notify you whenever you're maxing out.

    The Peak zone is a pretty dangerous place to hang out for over 1-3 minutes, so the alert will help you avoid compromising your health with high-zone training. Researchers say that high-intensity exercise can acutely increase the risk of sudden cardiac arrest or heart rhythm disorders, especially for people with heart diseases.

If you use the free version of Welltory, you’ll get 5 free workouts with personalized heart rate zones so you can test out this feature. After you’ve reached the limit, you’ll only see your heart rate, calories, and other standard metrics during workouts. If you are a PRO member, you’ll see your personalized zones whenever you need them.
