This app could change your life for the better!

The Elite HRV Podcast has a wealth of knowledge which will educate you about your HRV and it can put you on the path to many positive life changes.

What I REALLY like is the Biofeedback tool that lets you follow Dr. Leah Lagos 10-week Breathing Program. Listen to the July and August 2020 podcasts with Dr. Leah Lagos and then do yourself a favor and purchase a copy of her book “Heart, Breath, Mind” and do the 10-week breathing program, you won’t be sorry. The Elite HRV app gives you all the tools you need to follow the program.

I like the Elite HRV CorSense finger sensor for taking morning HRV readings as it is convenient to slip it on your finger as soon as you wake up. I do prefer a heart rate chest strap (I used the Polar H10 with some conductivity gel to ensure a good signal) for doing longer breathing sessions/measurements. The CorSense finger sensor is sensitive to cold hands, so I find I get a more accurate signal from the chest strap. But when I first wake up and my hands are warm and I want to take a quick morning HRV reading, you can’t beat the convenience of the CorSense finger sensor and I have no problems with the signal quality. Cheers!

Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review! We are so glad to hear you've found the breathing program useful and have found a way to incorporate both the program and the Morning Readiness reading into your day! Thanks again!

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:
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! Again, thank you for the review! :)

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!
