Athletes can often fall into the trap of thinking ‘if I go harder and longer in every session, I must improve.’ But to improve performance, training must be balanced with recovery. Constantly pushing training volume and intensity increases the risk of overreaching and can drain athletic potential.

Wattson Blue empowers you to keep track of your physiological and mental readiness, and helps you to identify early signs of overtraining in order to maximise your performance potential. It does this by monitoring various metrics, including measurements of your heart rate variability (HRV) and a number of subjective measures, such as emotional balance and readiness to train.

There has been a large volume of research into how these factors can be used to maximise athletic performance while minimising negative health effects, such as mental health episodes and overtraining. For more information, see the following blog posts:
