Studies show that sleep quality can greatly affect athletic performance. Letting your body recharge, regenerate and heal plays a vital role in improving your physical fitness.
Emfit QS will help you to achieve your fitness goals and push yourself to new limits by letting you track and analyse your sleep parameters, including heart rate variability.
We may think that the heart beats regularly like a metronome, but this is not the case. Even if the heart rate is steady 60 beats per minute, individual intervals from beat-to-beat will vary considerably. Fitter and healthier individuals have higher HRV (the heart beats more irregularly), while reduction in heart rate variability may indicate many health or lifestyle related problems.
Emfit QS measures HRV during deep sleep phase, guaranteeing maximal consistency in measurements by minimizing the amount of disturbing factors that are present if HRV is recorded either when awake or in REM or light sleep.
Results include heart rate variability indices RMSSD (Root Mean Square of the Successive Differences) and LF/HF ratio, indicating the status of nervous system, recovery status, and readiness for next exercise and how hard it can be. With this data you can optimize your training intensity every day and avoid overtraining.
Long term HRV monitoring one can tell if one’s cardiovascular fitness is increasing, as baseline HRV increases along with it. In short term HRV gives valuable information about stress and recovery, as both tend to decrease HRV from the baseline.
It is necessary for the recovery of your brain to have enough of REM sleep, as well as it is necessary for the recovery of your body to have enough DEEP sleep. Emfit QS provides you with a real and accurate three stage sleep classification! In addition to total amount of sleep, you will also see percentages of LIGHT sleep and, more importantly, recuperating REM and DEEP sleep. Furthermore, you can keep track of your heart rate, respiration rate, and physical activity during the entire night.
When you track your sleep results you start to focus more on the lifestyle choices that affect your sleep: physical exercise, working long hours at the office, staying up late having a good time with friends. Soon you start to realize which action causes which effect to your sleep quality, and then you can either continue to pursue – or avoid – the activity. Emfit QS collection of data enables you to find sleep affecting lifestyle patterns and improve them.
