Hey all, is there an official definition for what’s considered a resting heart rate?
Assuming I have heart rate data for every second of the day, I’m hoping to automatically calculate this value without sitting down and saying “I’m currently resting, let me measure my heart rate…”
After reading through countless scientific articles and forums, I still couldn’t find any official methodology for measuring RHR.
Some of the options I saw included:
- Lowest heart rate while sleeping
- Average heart rate while sleeping
- Heart rate immediately after waking up
- Lowest heart rate while awake
Does anyone have any insights or suggestions?
