Heart Rate Variability - HRV (rMSSD)

While most of the HRV apps use some sort of “score” conversion, or adjust the score in relation to trends, as long as the rMSSD value is available, it should be comparable from app to app (even if the app doesn’t make the rMSSD transparent, it’s usually possible to figure out how they’re transforming it into a proprietary score). I’m not sure what apps/services have APIs or would be easy to partner with, but manual entry would at least be a starting place.

Popular apps are Elite HRV, SweetBeat HRV, BioForce HRV, Ithlete, and my personal favorite, HRV4Training (which seems to have the most integrations with other services).

Attribute now exists, supported by Oura integration initially.

    Adding rMSSD from Elite HRV, as well as their readiness score would be a gamechanger for actually tracking the impact of other factors on our nervous system. +1000!

    I use an emfit QS sleep tracker that also includes HRV measurements as well as derived values for recovery. Just having the attribute fields for this works for me as I need to sync the data manually via API right now anyway.

    +1 for hrv4training and rMSSD!

    HRV is actually 1 of the best measures of overall health. So this would seem like we really need to get that from somewhere into exist.

    This data could also be extracted from the following sleep trackers: oura ring & emfit. There might be other sleep trackers that do this too.

    The option to pull HRV data from Apple Health (which can now track this, along with several other new heart rate metrics) would also be very helpful.

    Oura and HeartMath (inner balance) also track this. HeartMath’s device/app tracks a lot of HRV related data that could be very useful.

    Add Welltory to the list of HRV measurement apps

    Elite HRV and HRV4Training, this preferred, would be great 👍🏼

    ln(rMSSD) is the most comparable over time; automatically calculation would be nice

    I second the welltory suggestion, although I suspect they wouldn’t be so easy to partner with because it’s a paid service.

    Most important indicator of biological age.

    • for Welltory integration. I use Welltory, EliteHRV, HRV4Training altogether, and for now Welltory is the best and most promising in its future development and integrations.

    FYI Welltory is already listed separately, and isn’t possible.

    HRV is now available in IOS health. HRV4Trainig can read it from Apple health.

    I’m currently moving away from Gyroscope and actually missing this measurement a lot. Gyroscope also takes this measurement from Apple health.

    I consider HRV more important for my energy levels than many other metrics. It is crucial! Using the reading from Apple Health after night, or at least pull it from Oura could be great!

    If you noticed the recent Oura integration you’ll see it is pulled from Oura now.

    Dear Josh, thanks, but where it is in the app or web? I can’t find it. Thank you in advance.

    Once you’ve connected Oura it is with the other heart rate attributes in Health. Send us a message from the support form if you don’t see it!

    Does this only work if you’re an Oura user? My Apple Watch records my HRV and writes to Apple Health. Couldn’t Exist just read that data?

    Seconding this! HRV from Apple Health would be really nice!

    This suggestion was for adding support for the attribute, which I’ve done as part of integrating Oura. I’ve added a separate suggestion for adding this data from Apple Health.

    I also cannot see the HRV attribute anywhere on the app or web. Its not in Health

    And I am in the exact same situation - can’t find HRV anywhere.

    If you have Oura connected but don’t see the HRV attribute, please use the Exist support form to report it, then I’ll be able to help you.
