Signal Quality Check:
Upon clicking “START,” the app ensures optimal conditions by performing a brief signal quality check. This screen will let you know if your heart beats are being picked up by the sensor or not. It is essential to ensure that you have correctly positioned and worn the Netrin sensor (as described in the image on the screen). Failing to do so, would prevent the heart beats from being registered and you will be unable to click the “Start Session” button and therefore, start a session.

Follow instructions to relax and breathe normally. Click “START TEST” to begin the two-minute timer. Relax and breathe normally during this period.

How to interpret Your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) value from the Report


  • We require a minimum of 7 out of the last 15 sessions to provide historical context for your HRV data.

  • If this criterion is not met, the historical chart will not be plotted, and the HRV values will be indicated by a dash (-)

Reviewing Readiness Report

The report includes metrics like Average Heart Rate, Resting Heart Rate, and HRV/RMSSD. Typically a high HRV/RMSSD value indicates good recovery from various stressors, but post days of high stress such a Races it can indicate requirement for additional rest

Click “SHOW REPORT” for a comprehensive PDF report.

Note: Share your session report in PDF format via the share icon in the top right corner of the report screen.

When there is a historical data for more than 7 days, you will be able to see insights

High HRV: Indicates positive cardiac recovery and is coloured in green.

Moderate HRV: Reflects a moderate level of recovery and is coloured in yellow.

Low HRV: Suggests that your cardiac recovery may be less than optimal and is coloured in red.

The color-coding of your HRV provides a visual representation of your data's quality and your heart's recovery status. It helps you quickly gauge whether your current state is consistent with your usual levels, or if there are any notable changes that might require attention or adjustments in your training or recovery strategies.

Even when there is data of 7 sessions in the last 15 days, there can be days when your readiness insight might not show up in the report. This could be due to one of the following reasons:
  1. Data Quality Assessment

  • High Quality:  This is the ideal scenario and a report will be generated with your HRV value.

  • Poor or Missing Data:  HRV values will be shown in grey to reflect data quality issues. This typically occurs when you have either not worn your sensor/strap properly or, when there was an issue in collecting the data during the sessions
