Heart Rate Variability for masses
Until now, it was tricky to get measurement (and understanding !) of HRV for training and recovery. Kubios is one of the most used software on PC, and if it’s fairly complete, it’s also confusing if you don’t have a medical training. With smartphone apps such as HRV4Training, things were getting simple.
Another step has been complete to bring HRV measurement to athlete with the recent availability of HRV measurement on Garmin 920xt. The application is now available in the Garmin Connect IQ store, and can be used to track HRV. Only drawback is that there is no history, so you need to keep tabs in a Excel Spreadsheet.

Hi, excellent blog!
Regarding the HRV evaluation, there is a new tool available coming from years of research, already being used and approved by several top scientists ( http://www.codesna.com/en/scientific-comitee/ ). You may ask: Ok what’s the difference with existing tools, like Kubios? Well, CODESNA_HRV allows the dynamic analysis of Autonomic Nervous System (true Sympathetic and Parasympathetic activities) and brings new markers like Resting factor, Stress level and ANS entropy. Of course, the tool supports also the traditional analysis like LF/HF/RMSSD.
As it’s very simple tu use, you might be interested on evaluating it. So check it out with provided examples at: http://www.codesna.com/en/products/codesna_hrv/
