This simple CorSense HRV Sensor finger-based device (and Elite’s HRV app) allows athletes to learn about their recovery rate and if they need to push or rest, before even beginning a workout.

With so many new ways of measuring training and performance (we’ve listed quite a few here in this guide), the latest science now says that the timing of these big, measured workouts is just as important as the workout itself. For a few years, coaches have been talking about heart rate variability (or HRV) as the best way to know if we’re ready to train (or we need to recover). CorSense’s HRV sensor is one of the most accurate—and easy—ways to get this data consistently., $149
