Average heart rate statistics

From Jeff Mixon on 2016/06/20 17:47:18 +0000

I would be interested in some way to have visibility in to my resting heart rate data much the same way snoring values are set up. Having at least the average heart rate at the end of each sleep session would be nice. Being able to track this average over time and cross-section it with tags would be ideal to see how things like alcohol or exercise influences my resting heart rate over time.

Adding my vote to this. Resting heart rate (RHR) can be used to track "increase in fitness" (see e.g. http://www.topendsports.com/testing/heart-rate-resting-chart.htm) and even as marker for changes in health (see e.g. http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/resting-heart-rate-can-reflect-current-future-health-201606179806).
This last page also includes an idea on how to measure / track the rate: "The American Heart Association recommends checking your resting heart rate first thing in the morning (but before you get out of bed)."
Should be relatively easy for trackers with heart rate detection: just average the heart rate over a reasonable time during what "Sleep as Android" identifies as wake up time…?
Results can be trended and averaged like other data from Sleep as Android.

Did this happen? It’s sounds like a really good idea.

I agree with and support Andreas L’s comments on the relation between resting heart rate and fitness and health.

I have a Fitbit Alta HR which tracks/shows RHR over time and I noticed a distinct relation between my RHR and (non-)health and fitness.

So while I do not need this feature in Sleep as Android, I do support the enhancement request.

Replying to this to see any progress. I think this should be standard for all sleep tracking apps now and would love the integration for SaA

Hey everyone!

This is super important, should be a top priority feature!
We already see HR during each recording, just add an average value somewhere, minimum and maximum are a bit optional and most importantly make it available in the graphs so we can track usual state, changes and anomalies!

This has massive health effects and can be a very important indicator for so many things. (It also seems like a not very challenging feature to implement as it is already almost there.)

Please give us your take on this and some update!
Thank you!

Kind regards,
