Heart Rate Zone Analysis

Advanced heart rate statistics and analytics are some of the many features that come packaged with the MVP membership. To learn how to pair a Bluetooth heart rate monitor to the app, check out our instructions on the Help Center.

Free users can access some heart rate information, such as graphs and maximum, minimum, and average heart rate for their workout. On the website, you can view this data under workout analysis splits. Clicking on each split will provide access to each split's data, including max pace, max heart rate, and average heart rate. You are also able to view this information within the mobile app after analyzing the workout including average, max, and min heart rate.

MVP members see much more expanded information when it comes to heart rate analytics, including visibility into heart rate training zones, which breaks down the total amount of time that you are in each heart rate zone during a workout. This appears under your workout summary.

As a final tip, you'll want to make sure your birthday is configured in the heart rate settings section. This helps provide a basis for where your heart rate should be during the workout, though this is generalized information and for a more personal reading of your heart rate you should consult a medical or athletic professional.
