    68 - is that good or bad?
    Google says 60-100 is normal. So it's fine, except I don't know what it means when you go below 60.

    52 - much lower than others, is that bad?

    No, it's not bad... it's better than most people if you're an athletic person. If you're not very active then it could be a bad sign.

    Mine is 80. Still as bad as eer.

    Took an average of 3 counts, and I got 57bpm.
    But I am a keen cyclist, so it should be relatively low.
    In fact, my dads heart rate monitor says similar

    This. Because then for the 2nd 30 seconds you can take the respiratory rate...whilst pretending to take the pulse
    ....and you can check for volume, symmetry and rhythm :cool:

    Normal range is 60-100; it's normal to have a lower heart rate if you're athletic (lower heart rate is usually an indicator that your heart is in 'better shape', because it can pump out more blood in one beat than others, so beats slower to meet the same demand - indicating a higher level of cardiovascular fitness. Hence "lower=healthier").

    60 for me.
    I got 61 and i'm pretty fat and unfit, given the heart history of my family it's extremely surprising.

    I barley even leave the house so I haven't got a clue how that's possible, but yay.
