Compatible heart rate monitors and other devices

The following sports chest straps are a good choice for heart rate variability measurements:

The ones below are also suitable:

However, we recommend Apple Watch as the most accurate device compatible with Welltory and taking measurements automatically. The watch doesn’t require any action from your part to record your heart rate variability and allows Welltory to access this data.

Incompatible devices

Some devices can measure your heart rate (average number of heartbeats per minute), but not your heart rate variability (time lapsed between heartbeats). For this reason, they can’t be used for measurements in Welltory. They include:

  • Polar OH1
  • MyZone MZ-3
  • Scosche RHYTHM+

Unfortunately, you can’t use most fitness trackers and smartwatches for Welltory measurements, either. Find out which ones and why here.

If your device is not on our lists, let us know in the app’s chat, and we’ll check its compatibility. To access our chat, tap the three bars in the upper left corner of the feed screen and then the chat icon in the lower right corner.
