If you are at this point in the tutorial, I can assume that you have completed 5 morning Breathe Sessions, which also means that you have recorded the 5 mandatory HRV readings needed to build your HRV Baseline Range.
Your HRV baseline range is a representation of all your normal values and will play a key role in determining your Daily Outlooks moving forward. Your Daily HRV values will determine your Daily Outlook based on where they fall in comparison to your baseline range. I will discuss that more in Introduction to Daily Outlooks Guide.
It is important to note that this is only your initial baseline range. As you use Loops daily this baseline range will continually update itself. With that being said you may see an increase in your HRV Baseline if you are taking steps improve yourself via our Daily Outlook and Goal Recommendations. There is also a flip side to that, if you HRV Baseline is up-to-date and you notice a decrease in your baseline range, this can be caused by lack of proper training, over training, external stressors, poor diet and sleep habits.
Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions in regards to HRV Baseline.
What is HRV Baseline Range?
Your HRV is constantly changing throughout a 24-hour period. That’s why we represent it as a range and not a single value. By measuring it at the same time each morning, we can establish an accurate representation of the normal ranges that occur in your HRV measurements. By tracking its change as a moving average, we create your personal HRV Baseline range, and use these values as a reference point to evaluate your progress and identify unique trends that exist within your personal range.
How do we display your HRV Baseline Range?
We display your HRV Basline Range as a minimum and maximum range represented by the green meter on the HRV Baseline widget. We attribute your Daily Outlooks to values that fall within and outside of that range.
How is HRV Baseline Range Calculated?
Your HRV Baseline Range is calculated by taking your HRV readings from the past 14 days and aggregating them into a simple moving average that constantly updates itself each day as new measurements are taken. This average is presented as a range of values and is referred to as your HRV Baseline Range
