Pulse-based training made easy.

PULSALARM

Download on the App Store

PULSALARM notifies you on your Apple Watch by vibrating or beeping when you exceed your personalized upper and lower heart rate limits.

I am a passionate runner.
If I had developed this app years ago, my training would have been much more gentle and goal-oriented.

Bernd Rudmann

Thus PULSALARM
was born

I only discovered my passion for running when I was 50. Like many other beginners, I did a lot of things wrong in the beginning. Most running apps suggested a pace in my training plans - but didn't take into account what heart rate I was running with.

Only after a performance diagnosis did I realize that I had been training predominantly in the wrong pulse range and therefore did not become more enduring. The idea for PULSALARM was born and the use of the app in a pulse-oriented training.

Functions

This is what the app offers you:

  • PULSALARM warns you via vibration or acoustic signal when you reach your personally set pulse limits.
  • You can run in your pulse zone without having to constantly look at your watch.
  • You can continue training with your favourite running or fitness app, PULSALARM runs parallel in the background.
  • PULSALARM works in combination with all known running and fitness apps.

Requirements

This is required by the App:

  • Apple Watch with WatchOS 6.0 or higher
  • iPhone with iOS 13.0 or higher

An Apple Watch is mandatory for heart rate measurement. Using the app only on your iPhone significantly limits the range of functions.

Maximum Heart-
Rate

The maximum heart rate is the heart rate that is achieved under the highest possible physical strain. It is measured in beats per minute (BPM).

For pulse-based training, it’s important that you know your maximum heart rate as precisely as possible. That’s because it serves as the basis for determining your exercise intensity.

There are three possibilities for this:

Calculate MHR

With a formula you can calculate your maximum heart rate quite easily and quickly.

Determine MHR yourself

Do the self-test and find out quite accurately what your maximum heart rate is.

Intensity
ranges

If you always train in the low heart rate zone, you will never get faster and if you keep your heart rate high all the time, it will be difficult to get over a marathon distance. The variety in pulse-based training is what makes the difference.
