How fit are you? Take the 2 minute Digifit Heart Rate Recovery test to measure your fitness level.
Heart rate recovery is a great way to assess your fitness level; the quicker your heart rate recovers, the more fit your heart and body is.
Begin your recovery when you are done with your workout and before you slow down or reduce effort in Digifit on your iOS device. To do so, slide to pause your workout, and then tap “Recovery.”
After tapping “Recovery,” Digifit will begin a 2:00 minute countdown and it is now time for you to stop your activity and focus on bringing your heart rate down. Take long (slow) deep breaths, breath through your nose and relax. Watch your recovery on the chart which will show how many beats your heart rate has slowed since the start of the recovery period.
After 2 minutes, Digifit will display your recovery results including the percent of recovery by minutes. In the example, my heart rate recovered 10% or 18 beats per minute in the first minute. In the second minute, my heart rate recovered 11% or another 19 beats per minutes. My total recovery over two minutes was 21% or by 37 beats. These results generally show a healthy recovery.
After tapping Done, your recovery stats will show on your Splits screen, and the recovery portion of your workout will be displayed on your Heart Rate Chart.
