Have they, in the study, taking into account that most wearables are not very good at measuring heartrate?

”Meanwhile, resting heart rates below 65 bpm and above 90 bpm have both been linked to higher risk of cardiovascular disease, according to previous research. ...”

Now at age 80, this 70 beats is about right. However, when I was a jogger in my mid thirties to my mid sixties, the resting rate was about 50-54.

I am nearly 70 and started running about a year ago. My rhr went from 80+ to about 60 now. I think I'm okay, but I wonder about variance-- drops to as low as 56, then later up to 62 or so, but typically settles around 60. I wonder if that much variance is okay, but it seems little is known about this.
