Physiological Performance Analytics from Firstbeat

Stress is your body’s natural response to the challenges of life and environment. It is an elevated state that prepares you for action at the expense of restorative functions that occur when you are more relaxed. Seeing and monitoring your stress levels over time provide valuable insight and delivers the confidence you need to make minor adjustments that can produce significant improvements.

Heartbeat data captured with the Garmin Approach 62’s onboard optical heart rate sensor is analyzed and interpreted to reveal your current physiological state. You can see your current and recent stress levels on the device itself and explore longer term trends in the Garmin Connect app.

The Garmin Approach 62 also introduces the Firstbeat powered Body Battery tool to the world of competitive and recreational golfers. Stress, recovery, the effects of physical activity, and the restorative power of sleep combine are combined in a single metric to help you make smarter decisions based on your current energy levels.

When your Body Battery is fully charged (typically after a good night’s sleep), you have the energy you need to tackle challenges and bounce back stronger than ever. The intensity of your activities and stress reactions throughout the day determine how quickly your Body Battery is drained. Restful moments help you recharge.
