Fitbit is a renowned brand when it comes to smart wearable accessories. The brand has recently announced three fitness trackers. The highlight of the bunch is the Fitbit Sense. It is accompanied by Fitbit Versa 3 and Inspire 2.
Fitbit Sense Overview
Fitbit Sense is the company’s most advanced health smartwatch to date. It is also the first smartwatch to feature Electrodermal Activity (EDA) sensor. This sensor can help users manage stress. It detects a change in the electrical conductivity of the skin. This sensor evaluates how their body responds to stressors and relievers.
The Stress Management Score in the Fitbit Sense evaluates heart rate, sleep, and activity data. The score ranges from 1 to 100. A higher score represents a fewer response to stress. The app also provides suggestions to manage stress, and for breathing exercises.
Fitbit Sense is the first smartwatch from the brand to come with an ECG app. It checks your heartbeat for symptoms of atrial fibrillation. Just like the Apple watch, users need to hold their fingers on the corners of the ring around the watch for around 30 seconds to receive a reading. It is also capable of 24/7 continuous heart rate tracking.
The Fitbit Sense also features a skin temperature sensor. It can detect early symptoms of fever and illness. Fitbit claims it can even detect the start of a new menstrual phase. The sensor works even when you are asleep. Fitbit is also providing six months of Fitbit Premium for free. It now comes with an improved Health Metric dashboard. Similarly, it also provides insights on the SpO2 level.
Other features include sleep stages and sleep score, 20+ goal-based exercise modes , all-day activity tracking, active zone minutes, workout intensity map, menstrual health tracking.
