Know when to train, how hard to train & when to rest in order to optimise health & fitness.
Make your training safer and more effective by using the ithlete heart rate variability (HRV) app to choose the best times for you to train and improve your performance.
Getting the balance just right between recovery and training is often a challenge, even for the most experienced athletes. Therefore, it makes sense to use an app, which removes the need for guess work or complex calculations from your training schedule. By judging the right balance of training load and recovery you will reap the benefits in your fitness levels.
By using the ithlete HRV app you will have accurate data and be able to easily measure your daily fatigue and recovery levels. Tracking subjective metrics, such as sleep and diet, in the app also helps identify your most influential factors.

The many benefits of using an HRV App are:
• Optimise fitness
• Manage recovery
• Improve health, fitness & performance
• Enjoy guilt-free rest days
• Avoid overtraining
• Prevent injury
• Tracking long-term progress

How It Works
Training is all about stress and recovery and a hard session will lower your HRV. By using the ithlete HRV app to monitor training stress daily you can adjust sessions according to your body’s current readiness to train, improve and perform.
Simply take a 1 minute measurement every morning and follow the colour coded training recommendation; train as normal, train light or take a rest day.

The human heart is a naturally great barometer for measuring your physical and mental condition. Heart beat intervals vary when you are resting (many people do not know this) and HRV captures this valuable information. Increased HRV is linked to good health and a high level of fitness, whilst decreased HRV is linked to stress, fatigue and even burnout. This is why measuring HRV is a must for all athletes, whether professional or keen amateurs.

The ithlete HRV app requires additional hardware. Users will need either a heart rate monitor chest strap and ECG receiver, Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitor strap* or an ithlete Finger Sensor. All are available from

*Device must support Bluetooth Low Energy and be running Android 4.3 or above

Not all mobile devices are compatible with all sensor types, please see the ithlete website for a full list of compatible models and purchasing options.

Please also note the HRV app is NOT the same as a heart rate monitor app, which people use during exercise. The HRV app is an app that uses heart rate variability to diagnose your state of fatigue, recovery and readiness to train and is not used during actual exercise.

The screenshots below are for the latest v3.0 version, and is supported by most new Android devices. Users with devices not capable of running this version will receive the previous 2.3 version

Recently changed in this version

The ithlete v3 brings a complete interface redesign. Users can record additional metrics alongside their morning HRV measurement to build a comprehensive picture of health and fitness, identifying trends and patterns in the body’s response.

This version (3.6):
- Improved performance (reduced CPU usage)
- Improved support for account holders
- Minor bug fixes

    Great tool to use to collect training data. Have been playing around with taper strategies (triathlon) and comparing with HRV and I like how I'm responding to what my score is.

    pros: the data has been very useful in knowing when to push or rest; especially when doing a high intensity cycle where most of the training is neuromuscular. otherwise it simply reaffirms the obvious (i'm thrashed, i feel good, etc.). cons: the range is less than stellar (a few inches), but i take my measurements sitting at the breakfast table so it's not an issue. i'll probably switch

    Frankly I can't comment to how well the app works with heart rate variability over time or if heart rate variability is something even worth my time. But I will start off optimistically with a 5 star rating because this is one of the very few apps that supports Bluetooth smart heart rate straps in Android at all, and it works great. I will update my review as I continue to use the app.

    Although Play Store lists this app for a phone, it works with a Galaxy Tab 2. 7.0 and ithlete receiver; I have a Polar chest strap. No need to take a week off training to build a baseline, but some readings will be skewed during that week. Useful app if you have a tendency to overtrain.

    Great training tool.

    By far the most expensive HRV app, or app for that matter. You would expect support to be stellar. Mailed with a concern 2 days ago and no reply. Money down the toilet.
