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+
  • Wahoo TICKR Fit

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, check out these compatibility requirements or let us know in the chat (Menu → Help → chat icon in the lower right corner) — we’ll help you figure out if it can be used for heart rate variability measurements in Welltory.
