How Should I Interpret My Resting Heart Rate and HRV?

Tracking how your resting heart rate changes throughout the night may help you better understand how your body and mind recover from daily strain. Your lowest RHR during sleep can serve as a good baseline for your overall wellbeing. Lower resting heart rate can indicate better cardiovascular health and recovery.

Heart rate variability is a good indicator of cardiovascular health and general fitness. Your HRV can react to changes in your body even earlier than resting heart rate, so keeping an eye on your HRV baseline and trends can provide useful insights.
