1. Heart rate variability doesn’t lie.

If your heart rate variability is low then you are fatigued, ill or stressed. If your heart rate variability is high then you are almost always capable of performing well.


2. It can identify that you are feeling unwell before you start exhibiting any symptoms.

While this isn’t easy to identify, if you are particularly attuned to the data and your activity in the preceding days, then you can spot that you are coming down with something and take remedial action.


3. It encourages you to get to bed earlier and sleep better.

By just being aware that you will be presented with your sleep data, you are far more likely to make good sleep choices.


4. If heart rate variability is lowered, and heart rate and respiratory rate are elevated then it’s time to go easy.

Don’t ignore the interplay of these three variables – full stop.

5. Treat the daytime stress function with a grain of salt.

The daytime stress function may not be sophisticated enough to accurately track your stress levels. Conversely, using only the very same information, the restorative time function may have a far higher level of veracity.


6. A day of doing nothing but relaxing greatly enhances your recovery and restoration.

No elaboration needed.
