Viewing Your Heart Rate Variability Stress Score
Before you can perform the heart rate variability (HRV) stress test, you must put on a Garmin® chest heart rate monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors).
Your HRV stress score is the result of a three-minute test performed while standing still, where the Forerunner® device analyzes heart rate variability to determine your overall stress. Training, sleep, nutrition, and general life stress all impact how you perform. The stress score range is 1 to 100, where 1 is a very low stress state, and 100 is a very high stress state. Knowing your stress score can help you decide if your body is ready for a tough training run or yoga.
