IMPORTANT: Stress Detective HRV requires external hardware:
A tested Bluetooth Low Energy Heart Rate Monitors OR a LifeTrak Zoom wrist worn device. While other manufacturers wrist worn devices work well for heart rate, their wrist worn heart rate monitors are not accurate enough for HRV and so are not supported. They can be used for Food Sensitivity test.

The next big trend in bio-hacking is understanding the relationships between different metrics. Bulletproof Stress Detective integrates and correlates data from popular fitness platforms like MapMyFitness, Fitbit and Withings.
By analyzing HRV and Stress along with additional data, Bulletproof Stress Detective provides a deeper dive into health and provides insight into what activities you engage in that effect the health metrics you care about.
Bulletproof Stress Detective has four main components:
•HRV for Training
With Bulletproof Stress Detective, you can see your stress levels in real time, giving you the ability to take action to reduce stress. If your chosen stress threshold is reached, Bulletproof Stress Detective’s Relax screen prompts you with a deep breathing screen that includes calming images.
•Stats: The stats screen more widely referred to as the “geek” screen, shows all the metrics being measured. If using the HealthPatch, the user can view the additional provided metrics.
•Graph: The graph screen shows a real-time building graph of your heart rate from RR Intervals. Turning the phone 90 degrees counter-clockwise will bring up the graph in landscape.
•Export RR Intervals: Bulletproof Stress Detective provides RR interval export capability.
HRV For Training:
In competitive sports, improved performance is often affected by alternating periods of intensive training with periods of relative rest. Bulletproof Stress Detective measures HRV, an objective measure of your body’s response to each workout and provides training recommendations based on the morning reading.
Food Sensitivity Test:
If you are sensitive to certain foods, you may not experience symptoms, though your body reacts by elevating your heart rate after eating an offending food. Low level food sensitivities may contribute to inflammation. This inflammation tells the body to hang onto stored fat to combat whatever stress caused the hormonal release. Bulletproof Stress Detective measures your pulse three times after eating and assigns either a “X” (sensitive) or a green checkmark (not sensitive).
The correlation screen uses a patent pending algorithm to correlate all of the data the user has shared with Bulletproof Stress Detective. This data will come from the app itself, the HealthPatch and any other apps or devices the user has authorized (Fitbit, Withings, and/or MapMyFitness).
The correlation feature turns your data into useful information and provides insight into what combination of activities lead to desired HRV, stress or weight, giving you the knowledge you need to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Ratings and Reviews
Angry and disillusioned
This app has destroyed my trust in the Bulletproof brand. I read about the app in the new book, and, despite the lack of reviews and the $10 price tag, I decided to take the gamble, because I believed it was a good company. Shame on them, I lose the bet, because AFTER I purchased, I discovered that there is a heart rate monitor that I'd also need to purchase. False pretenses. I'll be demanding a refund, and reevaluating my relationship with the Bulletproof brand.
Big learning curve
Take the time to read instructions. Synced data from Fitbit blaze, and polar H7, very quickly. Now, just have to review data...I will update review again after 2 months.
This app cost $9.99 & you have to buy additional items to use it!! Wish I had know that BEFORE I purchased this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
