By monitoring key aspects of your running and fitness progress, you get a better look at your current performance level and what you need to do to keep up the good work or continue improving. The core level of your physiology is being reflected by your heart beats. Your heart is mirroring what you do and how your body is doing.

While I am training, I am using a Garmin Fenix 3 HR to collect data and to analyse these running metrics and physiological measurements, such as my performance condition, stress score and lactate threshold. At the center of my watch sits Firstbeat technology. The company is the leading provider of physiological analytics for sports and well-being, and transforms my heartbeat data into personalized information on exercise, stress and recovery. Whether you are using a professional heart rate monitor, Apple WatchFitbit fitness tracker, or something else if your device is showing you stats, you want to know more about what they mean.
