Fix for bug in version 2.6 that caused some measurements to stop early

App Does Not Work Well
Early on, this app worked alright and I could get some readings. I have all of my software and the app both completely updated and the app will not work at all- completely ruins whatever practical applicability the software had in the 1st place.
Avoid this product and save yourself the time. I will be returning ASAP.
Good start, could use one major upgrade
As a professor, researcher, and sports performance coach, I was really excited to finally get my hands on this! Monitoring HRV and state of readiness is the wave of the future for creating specialized and individualized training programs. PROS: so simple to use. Plug it in, strap on the HR monitor, lay and relax, and let the app work. Also love how it tracks your HR and HRV over time, so you can see your trends over time. Lastly, the accompanying book is great and detailed. Although I think it could be too much for someone without an exercise science background. And from what I've read and heard, the results are valid and reliable. CONS: this would be an AWESOME app is you could create multiple profiles and see their trends over time. Right now, it's only set up for one person per device. So for someone like me that works with teams and classes, I technically would need 30+ iPads/iPhones so that EACH athlete/student could see their trends over time. Not cost-effective. If only this app could let you create several profiles on ONE device so I can test Athlete 1, save their scores, switch profiles to Athlete 2's, save scores, etc. This is the biggest negative of this app and hopefully can be added with a future update. If Joel can figure out how we can track a group of athletes/students on ONE device, that would make this a PERFECT app for HRV monitoring.

I love my BioForce HRV. I started using it back in September and its been an integral part of helping me manage my overall stress levels. It's also helped keep me accountable in terms of taking care of myself (getting more sleep, taking more time to relax, etc). Not to mention I've hit several personal records in the gym since I started using it. It helps me get more results with less effort. I love it!
