Fitbit has announced Fitbit SenseTM, the company’s most advanced health smartwatch, bringing innovative sensor and software technology with the world’s first electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor on a smartwatch to help manage stress, along with advanced heart rate tracking technology, a new ECG app and an on-wrist skin temperature sensor, all powered by 6+ days’ battery life.
“Our new products and services are our most innovative yet, coupling our most advanced sensor technology and algorithms to unlock more information about our bodies and our health so you can be in control. Most importantly, we are making health accessible, surfacing new data that you may only get once or twice a year at the doctor’s office that you can use to focus on your holistic health and wellness, at a time when it’s needed most,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO, Fitbit
The new EDA sensor on Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity responses. Measuring your EDA responses can help you understand your body’s response to stressors and help you manage your stress.
