Viewing Your Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level

This feature requires a Garmin® chest heart rate monitor. Before you can view your heart rate variability (HRV) stress level, you must put on a heart rate monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors). If your fēnix® 5/5S device was packaged with a heart rate monitor, the devices are already paired.

TIP: Garmin recommends that you measure your stress level at approximately the same time and under the same conditions every day.
  1. If necessary, select Start > Add > HRV Stress to add the stress app to the apps list.
  2. Select Yes to add the app to your list of favorites.
  3. From the watch face, select Start > HRV Stress > Start.
  4. Stand still, and rest for 3 minutes.
