We’re introducing heart data in Vital to give you a detailed lens into some of the most important numbers you should know about your health. Over time, these indicate your overall recovery and readiness scores, as well as alert you to potential health areas to explore.

In your personal dashboard, see the “Heart” section to see key metrics such as your Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Resting Heart Rate (RHR) and latest heart rate readings.

Get to know your heart metrics, alongside other key pillars of your health, all in one place in the Vital app.

Curious as to why your resting heart rate might have increased over the past few weeks? Want to share the effects of meditation and improved sleep on your HRV? Share through the Vital app and get input from the wider community. Tell your story!
