Using an external heart rate monitor, your Biostrap will provide even deeper insights into your health data, including new fields to your Biostrap profile.

  1. Max Heart Rate will get added automatically if you use an active heart rate monitor during workouts. This is used to identify workout zones (fat burning zones, etc). You can override the number computed by Biostrap if needed.
  2. VO2 Max can be entered manually if you know this number, also known as lactate threshold. Some trainers collect this data. When added in the Biostrap app, it can be used to modify the algorithm to better zone your workouts. Learn more about this metric here: https://biostrap.com/blog/what-is-vo2-max/

These fields will show at the bottom of your Edit Profile page, found in Settings.
