Physiological Measurements

These physiological measurements require wrist-based heart rate or a compatible heart rate monitor. The measurements are estimates that can help you track and understand your training activities and race performances. These estimates are provided and supported by Firstbeat.

NOTE: The estimates may seem inaccurate at first. The device requires you to complete a few activities to learn about your performance.
VO2 max.

VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at your maximum performance.

Predicted race times

Your device uses the VO2 max. estimate and published data sources to provide a target race time based on your current state of fitness. This projection also presumes you have completed the proper training for the race.

Recovery advisor

The recovery advisor displays how much time remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the next hard workout.

Stress score

Stress score requires a chest heart rate monitor. Stress score measures your heart rate variability while standing still for 3 minutes. It provides your overall stress level. The scale is 1 to 100, and a lower score indicates a lower stress level.

Performance condition

Your performance condition is a real-time assessment after 6 to 20 minutes of activity. It can be added as a data field so you can view your performance condition during the rest of your activity. It compares your real-time condition to your average fitness level.

Lactate threshold

Lactate threshold requires a chest heart rate monitor. Lactate threshold is the point where your muscles start to rapidly fatigue. Your device measures your lactate threshold level using heart rate and pace.
