    Your resting heart rate is measured by the Apple Watch and can be viewed in the health app on your iPhone. I dont think it can show trends.

    The Apple Watch takes your heartrate every 10 minutes or so, automatically. As Scifan said, you can check it in the Health app, which show you a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly graph. That's sort of trendy, yes?

    It does not distinquish between your resting and active rates, though the lower rate for the day is 'probably' your resting rate. Unless you were sleeping with the watch on during that period, in which case it might be a bit lower than your resting rate.

    From the main "Health Data" screen choose "Vitals" then your Heart Rate. You'll see tabs at the top to choose the chart's time frame.

    If you turn on "Add To Favorites" your heart rate will show up in the Today tab of the app.

    Show All Data will let you scroll through a history of your measurements.

    Keep in mind that the Apple Watch and Health app are not 'diagnostic' in quality. The occational very high and very low readings probably don't mean anything.

    There are plenty of thrid part apps that can tap into the health data (with your permission). If you don't like the way the Health app displays your data, there is probably another app that you will like better.
