Make your training safe and effective by using the ithlete heart rate variability (HRV) app to work out the best time for you to train so you can 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 using ithlete you will have accurate data and be able to quickly and easily measure your daily fatigue levels as well as your recovery levels.

Benefits of using ithlete:
• Know when to train, how hard to train and when to rest
• Optimise every training session for improved performance
• Enjoy guilt-free rest days
• Avoid overtraining & prevent injury
• Track long-term progress
Who wouldn’t want to improve their training and performance?

How it Works

Simply take a 1 minute measurement every morning with ithlete and follow the colour coded training recommendation; train as normal, train light or take a rest day.
Training is all about stress and recovery and a hard session will lower your HRV. If this stays low, even with rest, you could be in trouble.
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 a 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.

PLEASE NOTE:
The ithlete HRV app requires additional hardware. Users will need either a heart rate monitor chest strap and ECG receiver or a Bluetooth Smart HRM strap. Both are available from www.myithlete.com/products.
*Device must support Bluetooth Low Energy and be running Android 4.3 or above
N.B. - Whilst the ithlete app supports Bluetooth Smart you must have a compatible device and be running the latest Android software (4.3 or above) to use a Bluetooth Smart HRM strap.

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.

    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 r

    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 s

    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

    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.
