I downloaded visible after I read those posts yesterday, and I tried to measure my hrv for the first time today.I am using visible and finding it very interesting. That's how I happened to get the heartmath monitor- HRV turns out to be more useful than I thought. I don't have a wearable like the garmin, but I thought I might try whatever visible recommends when they get to that stage.
Yup. Know what you mean. Over time, my observation has been that a lot of what we can glean from these devices/apps is a measure of our own well-being against....ourselves. So I watch to see--am I up or down and how does that correspond with my felt experience? And while I haven't found anything that is impeccable in its assessments, over time there is a fairly good indicator of how I am doing.I then got a measure that seems too good to be true
(I have a garmin myself, struggling with the thing youre mentioning . I hope to see a pattern after a while. I’m now curious to see if the hrv will add helpful information)I often look at others' numbers or reports and think--how can I be so high and yet, so sick?
Yes, I press my fingertip to the camera and hold it there. Often I lay the phone on my chest and hold it that way so I don't have to use energy to hold it up in the air.Are your fingertip actually pressing against the camera ?
When I bought my Garmin Vivosmart, the Battery didn't go up at all for the first week. Seemed like a total dud - then started working.
I hope your watch heals itself,
Maybe it has done a good job pacing itself for a whileThank you to you both. I was mighty discouraged thinking I was going to have to live with this but it is starting to respond a bit more now...at least I got to 21 on the body battery yesterday and the stress numbers are looking more like my previous norma
Yes, the advice I’ve got from others are…Visible: it has been pretty accurate (though not entirely--I got just a couple of really high 'stability score' readings over the last month that were subjectively far from reality) throughout, telling me that I needed to lie low and take it easier than usual. This makes senses, given that it includes recorded symptom severity in its assessment, along with HRV, heart rate and self-reported sleep success.
This totally sucks. I am so sorry. It has to be so discouraging. I wonder if it ends up being at all helpful or if instead you find it distressing to see how low your energy is?It's helpful when trying to find effective treatments, but I've mostly failed at finding anything to improve my Battery or Stress numbers consistently.

I got a new Garmin watch, Venu Sq2. On the watch I clicked on activate alerts for irregular heatbeat and a high heartbeat threshold. However, even in a sport mode like yoga, my heartrate went to 116 and no alarm sounded. I'm terrible with this technology, just horrible at it. With my eyesight being what is I really need this watch to sound off when I hit my HTR threshold.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong, and or how to get the watch to sound an alarm/notification when reaching a threshold?
