Fitbit: What does COVID do to your resting heart rate?

Posted By on August 16, 2022

RichCRestingHeart220815Since I wear a Fitbit and monitor a few things like heartrate, exercise and daily step count, I was concerned when my resting heartrate (graph left) seemed to be rising? After talking with my daughter about it, she mentioned that it sure seemed to correspond to my COVID diagnosis. Hm???

Hopefully it will return to normal after this lingering dry cough disappears (it is going on 3 weeks!)
