    Got me a Mi-fit tracker...(great value) say's early hours and in bed resting heart rate, running mid-high 40's. once up or.at work resting heart rate higher,,found same as you on web..:nurse:
    bothered me enough to mention it...heart scans say all ok, just waiting for holster reading to turn up..:rolleyes:

    At heart check, discussed with nurse WHY i was concerned, so asked me to checks at same time..
    she measured using the
    NHS multi millions (probably) equipment..57 bpm..
    Mifit (£26 amazon) 58 bpm..that'll do for me.

    btw, do run, but think more lacklustre C25K, rather then olympic gold athlete ;)

    So you can track back historically throughout a 24 hour period?

    I see mine seems to drop below 60 if at rest and really chilled out. Rather than at rest with an active mind. There seems to be two levels of at rest with me. Which matches your drop in levels when resting in bed.

    The NHS will only do this if we have a suspected heart problem.

    Do you have an irregular heart beat such as ectopic beats? (I have ectopics) If so, these machines can be unreliable according to my GP.

    Snap. I miss quite a few beats, so often will sit down and use the old method to count to 100 and see how many I miss, often a couple.

    Thanks. The machine has a built in check function for irregular heart beat. So far “the computer says no” irregularity.

    I just measured it this morning after breakfast, BP meds and a shower and it is around 80. The blood pressure comes down inversely when the at rest heart beat is higher. And vice versa. Am tracking it daily right now to see if there is a pattern developing.
