It’s like a personal translator for my heart!!


I run competitive Obstacle Races like Spartan and Savage Race. I train 5-6 days a week and need to understand when my body is ready to train and when it needs recovery.
👉🏼EliteHRV does exactly that.👈🏼
I’ve been using it daily for two months now and can conclusively say that its daily reports are spot on. If it says I need a recovery day, I take it! ... And I’m better for it!
👉🏼I train harder on days when it says my body is ready, and the proof is in the pudding, as they say. My times are faster and my efficiency is better...
👉🏼I’m super pumped I found Elite HRV because now I won’t start my day without first taking my readiness test! It’s like having a personal translator on my heart! It interprets my body’s language perfectly!!

Excellent app


I run 100mH professionally. For a while, the only HRV app out there was ithlete, which is just terrible. It takes a good four attempts to register your heart rate for a full 60 seconds, Making HRV measurements incredibly frustrating, and raising my heart rate which defeats the purpose. This app is such a breath of fresh air that I stumbled upon by accident when researching HRV. I work in Biotech, so the technical depth of the app, plus the 60 page manual is really appreciated when it comes to something as inherently complex as this subject. No one really wants to hear me talk about HIV research all day, but that is what they’ve been getting since I discovered this. Again, I cannot stress the ease, versatility, background that you get when downloading this completely free(!) app.

Good and could/will be better


The concept of HRV and its measurement make this app worthwhile and important. It is also easy to use, and will be more so when the finger heart rate device comes out in a few months. What needs improvement is the explanation of HRV given, especially the difference in sympathetic and parasympathetic. Having read and reread the descriptions of these, I am still unclear of the real difference and how these differences are captured in a practical and useable way by HRV. This is exemplified and perhaps exacerbated by the explanations which pop up on the app after my morning measurement. Certainly for me, when I am told that everything is good because I measure in the green range does not reflect how I actually feel after my 45-50 minute elliptical session. I am sure that this will be improved as Elite continues to advance.
