    One thing I would like to see with HRV readings is making it easier to track them, personally I find it difficult to use either a HR strap or smartphone app first thing in the morning (often trying to get up without waking up the other half) so something like a fitbit that can be worn 24/7 and just read HRV automatically would be perfect

    • quite so. the solution is an optical wrist band that also works all night for sleep quality hrv. I’ve been moaning about the lack of THAT for about a year now! Unfortunately the technology is not QUITE there yet for optical HRV. Valencell are demoing it but it is not commercial yet

      the coach feature of firstbeat athlete (now discontinued) did adjust the next day’s session based on today’s in-exercise HRV. not quite the same thing but a similar theme for introducing ‘dynamic’ scheduling of sessions

    • bioforcehrv/elitehrv/ithlete….traffic light interpretation of the results tells/advises you what to do. you’re right, one more indicator to make an informed decision on
