Fitbit’s app and wearables are receiving new updates. The Fitbit app for its latest smartwatches and trackers now includes a new health feature called the Daily Readiness Score. Based on heart rate, sleep, and activity, the feature analyses users’ willingness to exercise and recommends what they should do on a given day. An on-device electrocardiogram (ECG) app is also arriving to the Fitbit Charge 5 fitness tracker. Additionally, Fitbit users in India can use the Fitbit app to get a new blood glucose tracking feature.
Fitbit Rolling Out New Updates
Fitbit’s Daily Readiness Score came alongside the Fitbit Charge 5 in August of this year. The Daily Readiness Score is computed using information from the Fitbit device of the user. It will track users’ activities, heart rate variability, and recent sleep patterns; then determine if they should rest or work out hard on any given day. Each morning, users will receive a personalised score with details on what factors influenced their scores, as well as recommendations such as an optimal level of activity.
Fitbit Premium users get access to the Daily Readiness Score in the update. Fitbit Charge 5, Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, Fitbit Versa 2, Fitbit Luxe, or Fitbit Inspire 2 can all use it. It’s worth noting, though, that the feature necessitates wearing the fitness band all day. Users of the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 will be able to see their scores right on their watch.
Fitbit has also released an electrocardiogram (ECG) app for the Fitbit Charge 5 that allows users to assess heart rhythm directly on the fitness band in the latest update. The ECG feature was not included with the wearable when it was first released in August; but it has now been added via an update. Users of the Fitbit Charge 5 can take the reading by placing their fingers for 30 seconds on the stainless steel panels on each side of the device.
