Tips for Getting Started
Download the app
Download the Firstbeat Life app from the App Store or Google Play Store and create your user profile.*
You can easily order your Firstbeat measuring device in the app.**
*Please note that Firstbeat Life is only available as part of an occupational well-being service.
**Unless delivered directly by our partner.
Start the measurement
After receiving the device, first charge it and then connect it to your phone and start measuring.
The duration of the first measurement should be at least three days so our algorithm can get an in-depth knowledge of your body’s reactions and analyze as accurately and reliably as possible. Subsequent measurements can be between 1-5 days, according to your needs.
Attach the devise on clean and dry skin to avoid skin irritation.
See your body’s reactions in real time and react
The real-time Firstbeat graph lets you view your stress reactions, recovery, and physical activity already during the measurement. This makes it easier to react to excessive stress or insufficient recovery or physical activity – and make some adjustments.
With the Firstbeat real-time graph, you can learn when it’s time to take a relaxing break, get active, or slow down and relax to ensure better sleep.
The idea is not to continuously check the real-time graph, but take a look at it from time to time to see what your day looks like and determine if you should make some adjustments to improve your stess-recovery balance or boost your physical activity benefits.
The final, more comprehensive analysis and result is availalble after you are done with the measurement. Remember to end the measurement and analyze your result when you complete the ongoing measurement period (max 6 days).
Fill in the journal
During the measurement, fill in the journal that is found in the Firstbeat Life app.
The notes refine the analysis, help you to remember the events of the day, and learn which situations increase stress and which factors help you recover.
At a minimum, mark when you’re at work and a possible fitness level walk in the journal. But you can add as many stressful and relaxing moments, as well as periods of exercise, as you like.
Upload your results!
Once the measurement is complete, it’s time to calculate your final results. This is done directly in the app.
The results are completed instantly and you can access your own results in the Firstbeat Life app.
