What is The Cardio Fitness Score?
The Cardio Fitness Numbers are a combination of a resting heart rate, age, sex, weight, sleep, and how well oxygen is used while working out. Fitbit has a very good explanation on its website and on the phone app.
How can I follow my Cardio Fitness score?
On your phone open up the Fitbit app. and scroll to beating red heart and open it. The first screen is your heart rate at rest, swipe the chart to the left and you will see your Cardio Fitness Score.

Best Cardio Fitness Numbers So Far
These are my best numbers to date. This chart was taken on August 8th, 2018.
Observations This has moved up 1 point from 42 – 46 and thought I could move it up higher with more steps or longer walks.
Actions & Goals I\’d like to see this get to into the 60s by the end of the year. Now I\’m not too sure I can accomplish this by the end of the year.
Observations Surprised to see this so high, since I’ve been working as a web designer I’ve taken little care of my health and so considered my heart health less than average.

Cardio Fitness or Overall Heart Health
This chart gives an overview of your heart rate health.
There’s a good description online, in short, I believe it measures how hard your heart works while resting and at peak periods while working out and then determines how efficiently the heart works with the rest of your body.
This is why it’s so important to lower or follow your heart at rest.
