How often does the Apple Watch 3 check for heart rate? Is it like Fitbit, and does it continuously?

Hi jkinney4,

Welcome to Apple Support Communities. I understand that you'd like to know how frequently the Heart Rate Monitor on Apple Watch measures your heart rate. I know it's important to know and keep track of heart rate information, I'm happy to provide this information.

Apple Watch continues measuring your heart rate as long as you’re wearing it.

For more information about how the Heart Rate app works on your Apple Watch with other apps, as well as options for monitoring and viewing Heart Rate data, check out this link: Check your heart rate - Apple Watch User Guide

Best Regards.
