The resting heart rate is a good indicator of your overall health and cardiovascular health.
What is the resting Heart rate?
This an important chart to watch because it shows the stress your body is under while at rest. If for some reason your average jumps considerably you may want to see a doctor. As an example of the Fitbit community forums, one woman went to see her doctor after seeing a 10 point increase in her beats per minute. She found out she was pregnant.
How is the Resting Heart Rate determined?
Fitbit looks at the heartbeats during sleep and during the day when there is no activity or steps and figures out an average.

It looks like my resting heart rate lands between the mid 50s and mid 60s. My personal goal is to get all the scores below 60.

This is my favorite chart.
It directly shows how hard the heart has to work while resting if it’s over a 100 I would go see a doctor just to be sure there’s nothing seriously wrong. If there’s something blocking the blood flow or if there’s part of your body that needs more blood it will show up here.
