I’m not getting any HRV measurements, only max and min hr. Using a Fenix 3hr with a Garmin hrm1b chest band.

Developer Reply
March 27, 2020, fbbbrown

The issue maybe the HRM1b.Is this HRM1b a bluetooth HRM? if so this the issue, a bluetooth hrm with a Fenix 3 will not work. The app needs the RR interval data and Garmin does not pass that data in older CIQ devices. That is why the app makes a direct connection to the ANT HRMs. With the F3 only ANT hrm will work. Contact me directly, use the Contact Developer link on this page or at my website use the Contact Me form.

Does it need the chest band to work full function for Garmin fenix 3 hr

Developer Reply
March 1, 2020, fbbbrown

Thank you for reviewing. Yes, the Chest HRM strap is needed for IQ devices 2.x or lower. (I.e. F3hr) Only IQ 3.0 watches support the advanced RR-interval. Make sure to Disconnect the Chest HRM from your device, from settings,sensors,HRM set the status to off. The app will make the connection to the Chest HRM, since it needs all the information provided by the HRM. Here is a list of Recommended HRM’s https://www.fbbbrown.com/garmin-connect-iq/help-faq/hrm-requirements/

Sorry you are having an issue, but your problem is a Garmin Installer issue not the HRV app. A simple uninstall, restart the watch and reinstall will correct the issue or use Garmin Express. If you have a question to correct the issue, please use the contact developer link.

Sorry you fell that why but no app on the net has as many metrics for HRV, Recovery and monitoring your heart. With the free version all values are available at the watch but not saved to Connect. The full version saves 16 HRV graphs and data values.

It seems to work just fine and really like it but what's the point when you use it with health from Apple and it doesn't import the data. Not so useful. Hope this option will change soon

An interesting app. Does what it says on the box. It's just not behaving with my EDGE 530 and iOS Garmin Connect on my phone. Multiple re-installs of both app, data screen, and connect app, I can't get it off showing my graph labels in German when everything is set to English. When after saving an activity with this app and going back to the EDGE's home screen, when pressing the top right button (the ... one) to enter the activity data screens, it shows a red square around the display like when an activity is stopped. I have to press stop/start button to resume and again to stop in order to discard the activity. I don't know if this is an app issue or a Garmin issue. It's a bit cumbersome to disable the ANT+ HR monitor in the EDGE every time one needs to use this app. Luckily I have a chest strap with both BT and ANT+ so it's not that bad. I set ESGE to record the BT values and this App can then use the ANT+ signal...

This is a great recovery tool and I used it daily. Not sure why others cannot get this to work. Works perfectly paired with a chest HRM or with the optical on my F5+ and my new FR945.

Jackie sorry your having an issue, but perhaps you are not using your Purchase email or there was a Typo at the time of purchase causing the unlock issue. I looked for "Jackie McBride" there are no purchases under this name. Try contacting me and I will get you working :) Please update this review when you are working. Also, why did you wait this long? thanks, Brian.

Forerunner 235: App does not detect HR.

Developer Reply
January 1, 2020, fbbbrown

Sorry your having an issue but the app is verified in a FR235. Make sure to Disconnect the Chest HRM from your device, from settings, sensors, HRM set the status to off. Then all the data will be provided. If HRV data is still not working, in the HRV settings, set the Serial Number to 0 (zero). The app will make the connection to the Chest HRM, since it needs all the information provided by the HRM. The Chest HRM strap is needed for IQ devices 2.x or lower As in the FR235. Only IQ 3.0 watches support the advanced optical sensor.

If you need help contact me or list my website. With he Fenix 3, Make sure to Disconnect the Chest HRM from your watch, from settings, sensors HRM set the status to OFF. The HeartMonitor app(s) will make the connection to the Chest HRM, since it needs all the information provided by the HRM. The ANT+ Chest HRM strap is needed for IQ watches 2.x or lower. Only IQ 3.0+ watches support the advanced optical sensor and Direct Connect.

I can't seem to get this to work on my fr235. The app installs and activates fine and it shows up on my watch but it doesn't seem to pickup my heart rate. It shows zero heart rate. My heart rate sensor works fine as I use it regularly for activities. Sent a message to developer from their website but no response.

Hi, I respond to 100% of emails. Sorry, if did not respond but there was a few recent requests/emails sent to me without a reply email. You can contact me again. With the FR235(or CIQ 2.0 or older), Make sure to Disconnect the Chest HRM from your watch, from settings, sensors HRM set the status to OFF. The HeartMonitor app(s) will make the connection to the Chest HRM, since it needs all the information provided by the HRM. The ANT+ Chest HRM strap is needed for IQ watches 2.x or lower.  Only IQ 3.0+ watches support the advanced optical sensor and Direct Connect.

I have contacted developer via this page 3.10.2019, but never received any feedback. So let me ask / copy my question here directly: "just purchased Heart monitor + HRV app, and try to make a measurement. I am still not that familiar with HRV results reading, but in some older review reply, you mentioned you will add HRV power as well - "The next update will will include power (LF, HF and LF/HF ratio). This app will be more powerful than most phone apps! IQ power!!!" My question is - is it already implemented in software? I do not see such a result out of my F5."

Thanks for reviewing. The spectral power LF/HF power frequency is not ready for release. This is an item i want in this app but is not ready to release, yet.

I have had to repurchase this same app over 3 times because when I am collecting date with several months in between it suddenly gives me this is a trial version (all of this has happened in less than 1 year). Two using this with a Garmin 935(?) I use with adapters to collect HRV data on horses and I will do multiple readings. All the reading work as I am watching on the watch but when I go to download into Kubios one will work great and the next says NO RR FIT data or it says the reading needs to be at least 5 mins long when the reading is like 5 min and 30 secs long. Either the garmin watch or this app has rendered much of my research useless. I do not see how this app can has so many glitches and so no signs during the recording phase or force you to have repurchase constantly.

Developer Reply
October 25, 2019, fbbbrown

Sorry you purchased more than once and you should see a few refunds. if the app goes back to trial mode just re-enter your email and it will unlock. They have been several updates that caused the settings file to get updated. As for the Kubios, that software requires the RR-interval to be stored in a special data type that is not provided to the CIQ developers. Adding this data is easy and a request has been made to Garmin to add this to the CIQ SDK. thanks Brian
