Ratings and Reviews
Functional, but a little wonky in terms of usability
The basic features are there. Specially the app will measure your HRV. Guided breathing is also part of the feature set as is long term monitoring (e.g. hours) support. You can also add meta-data such as notes, tags, energy levels, or glucose levels to an entry. Another great feature is that you can export your data for further analysis with a desktop app. With the exception of long recordings such analysis is probably not necessary because the app gives you all the usual frequency and time domain stats such as SDNN, LF and HF power, and RMSSD.
Usability issues include no apparent way to search your entries. For example, I want to only look at the guided breathing entries. Also if you scroll back in time and click on an entry then return to the log view the app takes you back to the top of the list (i.e. today) and you have to scroll again.
There are plenty of similar annoyances that I would expect to be missing from an app you pay for, but then this one is free so ... give it a try. It’s probably worth your time. Especially if all your looking for is training guidance.

Hi, thank you for the review! That is good feedback regarding being able to search your reading log - I can pass that onto the team. Let us know if you have any other feedback!
Happy with this app
I went to a scientific conference a few years ago where HRV was discussed. What sold me on it was a study that investigated complications and fatalities among organ donor recipients. Those patients who had the most extreme drops in HRV were, for the most part, the ones who had severe complications. Thus intrigued, I looked for different heart rate monitors and apps and eventually settled on a reasonably priced third party monitor and this app. As someone who analyzes lots of data for a living, I really like what they’ve done with this app. While I’d like to have more visibility on how they arrive at some of their scoring metrics, I do like the simple information you get from the morning analysis dashboard. I have indeed found correlations to changes in my HRV and many different stressors, such as overtraining, a change in diet, and illness. My only wish would be for it to share results with Apple Health. For now, though, I’m happy just manually entering my SDNN each day. Great job, guys!

Thank you for the thoughtful review! You might like this article on how we calculate the HRV score: https://help.elitehrv.com/article/54-how-do-you-calculate-the-hrv-score
It's general, but gives you the idea. If the integration to Apple Health is not working, please disconnect and re-connect to AH. If that does not work, please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, thank you for the review! :)
Offers a lot, but . . .
I’m very new to this app and probably haven’t discovered all its ins and outs, but I feel that I’m struggling to figure it out. It doesn’t feel that intuitive and I feel that an app like this one should be. To get started the user works from a list, one this user struggled to find. Should the user begin each day with the morning 2 min check? I don’t know, and maybe it says somewhere, but if so, I’m not sure I could find it again. I stumbled on to discovering how to change the breathing balloon’s rate — good and cool once found. I began my meditation this morning with an unfocused gaze on the balloon thinking that the session was being recorded, but my wandering gaze eventually noticed (half way thru) that it wasn’t. A clearer notice like “click to record” might help. Also, locating the balloon at the top of the iPad screen would allow the user to use the balloon visually to pace the breath without watching the numbers. Addition of a simple set of tones would free the user from even having to look at the screen.

Hi, thank you for the review - this is good feedback. I can definitely pass it onto the team that a few things could be made more intuitive. That's our goal!
