Beat Fluctuation (BFx) is a measure of how much your heartbeat changes from beat to beat. BFx varies from person to person and also changes with lifestyle, habits and activities. BFx is represented on a scale from 0 to 100 where lower values indicate less fluctuation. It is an experiment where you may observe how that BFx number changes throughout the day with changes to your lifestyle.

Hi, your new BFx feature is no doubt very wonderful but nowhere can I find a simple explanation with examples of what it means. I have asked on the AF forum and no one there can help either. I understand a high BFx is good and low is not but have no idea how to tell which is which. Is there any relationship between the HR and BFx? If my HR is 56 and BFx is 53 for example I have no idea how that is better or worse than a HR of 56 with a BFx of 35. Can the BFx be too high? We need a good explanation in the education section please!
