Sync a rhythm
On the "My Ryhthms" page you’ll find five preset rhythms to choose from. The app calculates different rhythms based on your physiology, which is why we ask for your resting heart rate.
Rhythms are put into pairs so that your doppel can store one high rhythm and one low rhythm - these are easy to switch between on the go, as and when you need.
1. Select the purple "Sync" button.
2. Your selected rhythm pair will now display as "Current" to show that you have successfully synced and a yellow banner will briefly appear at the top, displaying your current rhythm settings

Create a new rhythm
1. To create a new rhythm, click ‘+’, at the top left-hand corner, and then drag the sliders up or down to change the BPM.
2. Tag each BPM with our five feeling states: Energize, Alert, Focus, Calm or Relax.
3. Name your new rhythm and then select "Save & Sync".
Why should I edit a rhythm?
So why should you try editing a preset if they are already personalized?
Well, firstly, your feelings are more complicated than a BPM. Only you know how you feel and only you can know exactly how much you like a particular rhythm. Preference matters. Our presets are based on our research, but everyone is different. For example, calming rhythms are preset to just below your resting heart rate, but some doppelgängers like to mimic their resting heart rate instead.
Just because one person finds our presets to be perfect, doesn’t mean that you won’t prefer your favorite calming rhythm to be slightly slower, or your favorite energize rhythm to be slightly faster. Everyone’s physiology is unique and so there’s no reason why your favorite rhythms shouldn’t be unique too.
It’s also important to think about the situation you plan to use doppel in. For example, ‘calm’ means different things to different people. One person might want to work towards a ‘highly-focused calm’ when completing a high-pressure task but a more ‘relaxed calm’ when they feel stressed. In each situation, the person might use a different rhythm, but both are helping them to feel calm.
Many of our customers like to test out different rhythms in different situations - feelings are very personal, so do what feels right for you. If you don’t like your new rhythm, you can always change it back!
