Our expert says:
People are different, and so that's a big part of the reason why a heart rate would differ from one person to the next. You must have a very high heart rate, maybe your husband's is very low, and the comparison is so obvious.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's obviously important to keep measuring, because what you'll find is that as you get fitter, you will notice a fall in the heart rate at the same speed. For example, if you walk at 7 and your heart rate is 175, then hopefully in a month, it'll be 170. That's a sign you're getting fitter.
But it's best to compare your heart rate to your heart rate, and not his, because you're different!
