Avengers: Endgame is causing heart monitors to go crazy
April 28, 2019

Guess everyone’s excited to see the film.

As a closing chapter to the Infinity Saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many have flocked to cinemas since last Wednesday to watch Avengers: Endgame. While official numbers aren’t available yet, it looks like it is going to be another box-office hit which could even dethrone Titanic (or Avatar) as the number 1 movie of all-time.

Evidently, people are already emotionally invested in the franchise which caused some fitness trackers and smartwatches to report high heart rates on a resting state, as shown on some tweets by fans.

Just to note, a resting heart rate of more than 100 bpm (beats per minute) is usually not good -, especially for long periods.

I personally experienced this myself on my Apple Watch last week when watching Avengers: Endgame. I got three notifications about my heart rate going above 120 bpm during the movie’s three-hour runtime. I had to calm myself for a while to make the number go down at a normal rate.

As you can see, moviegoers can be this excited on a film so just in case you haven’t seen it, try to calm yourself down and just enjoy the movie.

Avengers: Endgame is now showing and is already tracking to hit $1 billion after only a few days of release.
