Adding your heart rate widget on Twitch is a great way to connect with your audience. It also provides an interesting visual and helps viewers better understand how hard you are working. Our viewers have about 30% more engagement, and their community is more involved.
Your heart rate will show up as a widget on your screen, which not only gives your viewers a more personal connection but also gives them valuable information about how you are feeling during the stream. Real, authentic connection. As you’re creating quality content and building your community, this can make a difference to providing an entertainment factor but also creating a bond.
