heron61: (Heron - about me)
Having a health tracking band with a heart-rate monitor (a Garmin Vivosmart HR) has been interesting - while (as I mentioned previously), calculating deep vs. light sleep seems less than accurate (likely in general w/o EEG monitoring), I checked it's heart rate monitor when I went to the doctor, and it was within 1 BPM. Also, was I was specifically looking for (and why I got this device) was that it did continuous heart rate monitoring, and displayed both maximum and average resting heart rate for each day. I recently looked at it and noticed a rather impressive trend - my average resting heart rate is (presumably due to a combination of regularly light-moderate exercise and blessedly good genetics) 63-65, it does sometimes vary from that - specifically both when I visited my parents and immediately before my visit, when the average jumped up into the low 70s, which has never been true before, and clearly means that I was notably more stressed. I can tell when I visit my parents simply via my resting heart rate, which shouldn't be that surprising, but definitely is interesting.
