1. Men's Health Magazine, 27/01/2020:
"Work Stress Could Be Killing Your Gains. Is work, not working out, the cause of gym burnout?
In addition to insufficient sleep, a poor diet, and alcohol, the mental strain of work blocks testosterone production and grinds your recovery to a halt. In a University of Texas study, chilled-out students were able to improve their leg press after 72 hours of recovery, but those living with chronic stress became weaker over the same period.
Keeping tabs on both mental and physical toll is crucial. The solution is heart-rate variability training. You can measure how well you’ve recovered from your last session. High variability signals that you’re ready to push, low variability means a day of stretching and high-nutrient food.
If you want to make your training plan stick, track HRV at home with Welltory. Best for beginners, the free version uses your phone’s camera to measure your HRV. The data is easy to read, giving scores for mood, energy, and stress. You won’t miss a beat."
2. The American Heart Association recommends HRV assessment for ambulatory ECG, EKG or cardiogram interpretation.

Ratings and Reviews
Good but UX could be better
I've only been using it for a day and just bought the pro version. I'm a covid long hauler and so I'm hoping it will help me speed my recovery and help avoid making myself worse. It's picked up that there are serious problems with my nervous system which I knew from the symptoms I still have. I'm hoping it will help me see what improves this v's what makes it worse.
The UX is generally good but there are places where it could be a lot better. For example, the experiments feature could be really useful to me but its really buried in the menu and very difficult to find. Plus, I did an activity, recording my measurements before and after like it said, yet it didn't then appear as an experiment so I don't understand how it works.
Some of the explanations of the measurements could be better, as a minimum I want to know what it means, what the normal range is and ideally a link to resources of how I might improve it. One explanation I saw just went on about how they adjust the measurement to remove the heart rate but didn't explain what the measurement was, which was pretty useless for me as a user.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for the detailed review. We appreciate that. We're sorry about your illness and hope you will get better soon. With our new update, we have introduced the new user-friendly version of UX and made tags system easier to use. Now you can tag any activity and create your own tags to observe how certain activities influence your metrics. After some time, you'll see new graphs with tags statistics on them.
Thank you for highlighting the normal range aspect. We're constantly collecting feedback from our users. When we receive enough feature-requests, we focus our attention on implementing one. We hope you like the new version of our app!
Excellent concept. Well implemented. 👍🏽
Kudos to the developers. Some interesting metrics in here. HRV readings can vary from minute to minute but I think this does not reflect negatively on the app however. HRV can vary widely depending on your emotional state and is a reflection of the activity of your autonomic nervous system. To make the most of this metric you should probably take a reading first thing after waking each day to gain more reliable insights.
Customer service is excellent and was contacted in-app by one of the support team as well as prompt communication by email in order to respond to my queries and dealt with them to my satisfaction ultimately.
Some reviewers don’t like the new format and feel it gamifies it too much. For me I don’t remember the old format and think the current format is fine.
One of the better apps if you are looking to join the self-monitoring revolution in order to improve your health. I’ve yet to explore the numerous other metrics in here but I’m impressed by this company overall despite some having experienced some minor technical issues with in-app purchase of subscription, they were quick to resolve the matter and assist me as best they could.

Limited in usefulness
I read the dev response to my review, below. I fully understand the claims about HRV and what is supposed to be understood from these measurements. BUT, realistically, most of us feel stress, illness etc as a whole body experience, so the idea that we can feel totally fine but our HRV records as problematic is bogus. It’s not helpful. Be careful what you read into the analysis that is offered here.
I found the data presented by this app confusing and contradictory, telling me at the same time that I’m doing great, but am also sluggish or similar. Different stats saying different things which were mutually exclusive a lot of the time. It often advised not to be active which I found strange when feeling fine. It kept hinting that I must have an underlying illness creating problems, which I think would be anxiety provoking for some people, but didn’t concern me as I’m well. It uses language which comes across as an attempt to be hip and peppy, but just grates after a while. (“Houston we have a problem” every day for weeks is just repetitive and dull).
It’s probably useful to some extent if you don’t mind the style of it and the readings make sense to you. I would trial a month before paying a subscription so that you get a feel for it’s worth to you.

Hi there! Thanks for the review update! We appreciate your feedback.
Regarding recommendations and HRV results: the thing is that we measure HRV, which doesn’t reflect your mood or emotional state. It shows how your heart and nervous system react to what is happening to you. You may feel energized when your body needs a break.
There are different things that might affect how you feel - from the day events, that affect your hormone and neurotransmitter levels to caffeine, nicotine, etc. Some metrics show how your body is dealing with the changes, if you get too stressed or sick, for example, while other metrics show if your body needs a rest or is ready for complicated tasks. The best way to analyze your health is the balance of all metrics.
You can check more details here or in the Help section at the app: https://help.welltory.com/articles/4380824
Regarding the contradictory recommendations, we are going to extend them in the future and change some wording for some of them. But the general idea that you get the recommendations based on the levels of your HRV results. There are algorithms that learn your readings and suggest to you what is the most important thing for you at the moment.
Also, the most important thing is that to trust your readings you need to make sure your measurement results have 95% or more accuracy because the measurements need to have good quality. “Houston we have a problem” message usually appears when your measurement accuracy is low. you can check it in the measurement details.
Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions regarding the app work.
