***featured in in CYCLING WEEKLY, as one of the top training and recovery apps for Cycling!***

Balance stress and recovery to maximise your long-term performance. Whether you are an athlete or just want to perform to your best, Wattson Blue helps you improve and avoid burnout.

If you use Strava, get instant HR and Power insights, and optimise your training and recovery with HRV and other well-being metrics.

Link Strava and get insights including training load (TSS) and time in zones for your activities. Record your Heart Rate Variability (HRV), sleep, nutrition and well-being metrics in Wattson Blue for readiness feedback.

You can track your HRV using the camera on your phone, Apple Watch, or with the Oura ring.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is an important indicator of your body’s stress and recovery levels. Tracking your HRV and other metrics, and training according to feedback from Wattson Blue will enable you to challenge yourself, stay motivated and hit your goals.

Apple Watch users can trigger an HRV recording using the Breathe app on their phone before receiving our daily recovery and readiness feedback!

Wattson Blue uses elite level sports science, developed alongside student athletes at Oxford University, to help athletes (and teams) improve their physical and mental well-being and maximise each athlete's long-term personal performance.

Helpful, comprehensive and well thought through

Wattson Blue is very helpful and comprehensive. The heart rate variability measurement and heart rate are important and reliable indicators of how recovered I am or how much stress my body is feeling. The app brings together many metrics and inputs both objective (like the heart rate and watts on a bike ride) and subjective - like how much I feel in control of my life. It is so much more than just a record and analysis of training (although it does that very well with analysis of training load ,CTL and TSB). The questions about the amount and quality of sleep, nutrition, alcohol , etc act as prompts to reflect on those things - especially as it keeps telling me (rightly) that I am not getting enough sleep. There has clearly been a lot of thought put into the way that the metrics and subjective inputs collectively prompt advice eg on whether I am in the right condition to train, what I should focus on or whether I should take time out for some rest and “me time”.

Best there is !

Just getting to grips with this ,and despite a few teething problems (me !) it’s all starting to make sense.(60 year old ex time trialist.)
It’s not a “we’ll work it out for “ sort of app , but that’s not a bad thing as you will make more sense of the data if you understand the reasons for the metrics input .
Probably a few more FAQ might not go a miss as to how to take pulse readings etc , but as for the chat 💭 for help , we’ll that was almost immediate ! Impressive !
And it uses your smart phone camera for readings , so no expensive hardware to purchase .

Achieving Goals

Wattson Blue helps me to achieve my weight loss goals. Consistency is key and the quick daily input of my health data and feedback keeps me motivated and on track.

The app is easy to use and syncs reliably with my Apple Watch. HR information from all of my activities is presented in clear charts and graphs, which help me to decide whether to change my workout intensity.

The app is continually evolving to keep it fresh and exciting. A must have to monitor and accomplish your exercise goals. Suitable for beginners to elite!
