Heart rate as a percentage of HRmax

Is there any way to display in the app, heart rate as a percentage of HRmax, i.e. %HRmax? If not, why not? I think it would be easy to implement? Thx

Thanks for the recommendation @Slogfester! It’s something we could consider adding to the app when we make the next update, since it’s a pretty easy calculation.

Out of curiosity, what do you find this data field most helpful for? Versus using the actual HR in bpm?


TBH, I have always worked in %HRmax, even 23 years ago when I got my first polar HRM. TBH again, Xert is probably the first bicycle prog/app (outdoor and now -having tried quite a few- indoor) that I have ever used that doesn’t offer HR expressed as a percentage rather than absolute bpm. Standard HR zones are calculated as %HRmax and analysis is based upon time in a HR zone etc. As an end-user it makes life much easier.

Do you have a road map of when you’re planning of rolling out next releases?

I’m just getting excited to know since the plateform is already great as it is!
