Today, I want to introduce you to something called heart rate variability (HRV).

HRV is a measurement of the variations between the heartbeats. There are different time distances between your heartbeats.

The more varied the timing is between the heartbeats, the healthier a person is, and the higher the HRV is. The less varied the timing is, the less healthy the person is, and the lower the HRV is.

HRV measures the autonomic nervous system. It has been well-researched and can help a person understand their ability to adapt to and recover from stress.

Many people use this technology to determine whether or not their body can handle the stress of working out on a given day. Maybe they can handle doing high-intensity training one day, but their body would do better with a day off or with low-impact exercise the next.

There are many different lifestyle changes you can make to help improve your overall health. HRV technology can help give you feedback to see if what you’re doing is actually benefiting you. It can even tell you your biological age and rate of aging.

You really can’t take your health to the next level if you can’t measure it. This is a fantastic and easy-to-use tool to help you do that right at home.

  1. I have a background in cardiac, so know about sinus-arrhythmia from way back, now referred to as HRV. I got an iWatch almost 4-years ago and started to track HRV. Sure enough as I trained I saw a satisfying up tick in HRV. Then over the past year it increased further, good tight? No. When I looked deeper, HRV was chaotic (inter hour activity) further examination revealed occasional PVCs (missed or premature heart beats) My message is high HRV doesn’t always mean better.

  2. Hi Dr Berg, excellent video on this biohacking tool. I have been researching the Whoop and the Oura ring as well to measure my HRV. Have you tried either and any thoughts? Thanks!

    • Yes, I bought them all. Some are good for sleeping and even bio age of peripheral arteries. The one I am promoting is unique in that it gives you 12 different measurements to use when exercising and just reducing stress

    • I have an Oura ring which tracks it very well. Since the Virus, my HRV dropped by about half. If I’m unwell it reflects that immediately.

  3. I am very interested in this. I have an old HRV device from the Heart Math institute and would like to learn what’s new out there.

  4. Thank you for this insightful video, Dr Berg. Your educational content is always helpful. As a patient suffering from dysautonomy/pots/long covid I appreciate this 🙏🏻

  5. Thanks for the useful info on HRV reading device. More detail training on reading demonstration on the device would be great!

  6. I am up early to catch a flight; the first 2 minutes of your video today helped get me awake! I’ve noticed an adaptation of my heart rate over the past year, lowering stress & more yoga. 👏🏻 🙏🏻

  7. Some of the reviews for the Apple Watch and Fitbit Smart Watches are that they are not always accurate even though they are being worn on the wrist. It would be interesting to see side-by-side comparisons between all three of these technologies. The Apple devices are way expensive but the Fitbit are a little less. It would be interesting to know what the differences are in wearing a watch to track sleep versus checking in on a device that you’re not wearing. Is there a difference with frequency within the body? I have been putting off purchasing any type of smart watch because it’s connected to the phones towers and I thought we were supposed to limit radiation exposure close to the body.

  8. I’ve been tracking my HRV for several years through my Garmin watch. It’s pretty interesting. It always drops after a hard workout, alcohol consumption, and during sickness.

  9. Using my Garmin, tracking HRV for the past 3 years, I have substantially improved my HRV which has noticeably increased my health. it is an invaluable tool.

  10. Doc, as a ND, I have to it would be cheaper and way more effectice for people to buy quantum analysis machines. If it’s for other than testing, I would like you to review or maybe partner with Pulsetto or its competitors. Neuromodulation of the vagus nerve seems to be the way to go. What are your thoughts on this?

  11. Dr Berg the intro to HRV is finally here. You’ve been hinting in your videos for a while. Thank you for the free training on your website. 21 videos so that we maximize our use of this device. I haven’t decided yet if I will purchase but I am grateful for all these free training videos so I can watch and learn and make a decision.

  12. Garmin devices also track HRV. It is amazing to be able to track this biological component in our bodies. Thanks for helping me to understand this better.

  13. I took these types of tests when I was in New Jersey. When I was working on my health and diat and doing brain simulating things in my doctors office. I also would take this test sometimes. And each year, I would lower my biological age each year. First time I was 21 and the biological age was 20 , the second time i was 22 and my bio age was 19. And the Third time I took it. I was 23, and my biological age was 17. It was really amazing to see that. To see me get better. It was really cool.

  14. I’ve used the Garmin Fenix7X which tracks HRV for a year now. I’ve found it useful in planning my workouts and found myself taking more time off between workouts. Stress levels, sleep and recovery improved.

  15. Thank you Dr. Berg! I have been curious about HRV for a while. I have an ŌURA ring that measures HRV while I sleep. I’m curious about the actual numbers as my HRV is super low, 9-12 on most nights and sometimes it goes down to 8 or raises to 15. What is a “normal” range and how can I increase my HRV? Thanks!

  16. Thankful dr Berg, i am grateful your time to lecture this topic it’s helping me to understand clearly about heart operation. ❤
