Resting HRV

You are here:

Your HRV (heart rate variability) is calculated over time as an average of the increases and decreases in your heart rate as measured heart beat by heart beat, in the ECG data you upload. As a measure of your stress level, the Resting HRV value is calculated over all your HRV values when you are not moving. A high Resting HRV corresponds to a lower stress level and correlates with well-being, positive emotions such as motivation and enjoyment of life, and counteracts the risk of stress problems. The bar shows the calculated value and before enough data is available for the calculation to be stable, it is grey.

If your Resting HRV value is low for a long period of time (weeks/months), it is an indication that you should aim to increase it. Important to know though is that there is a high genetic variation in the value. Some are born with a higher value, while others are born with a lower value. So if you’re not where you want to be physically or mentally, you’ll benefit from increasing your HRV, no matter what your absolute value is.
