In this episode, Jason and I will dive in deeper into things like what gadgets you should be using to measure your heart rate variability, how to evaluate these gadgets, and why some of the more popular ones may not be the best source for getting the most accurate HRV data. We will also talk about something that has surfaced recently and is called resonant breathing frequency and why I am obsessed with this ever since I heard about it. And finally, Jason explains the most beneficial aspects and features of the Elite HRV app and how accessible they are to you.
