HEALTH & FITNESS
Taking time to recover can produce better results than working out hard all the time. Understand what’s best for your body with the Daily Readiness Score on Fitbit Premium. Each morning, you’ll get a score in the Fitbit app based on your activity, sleep and heart rate variability. You’ll also get a personalised goal for the day, plus recommended workouts or recovery sessions, depending on what your body needs that day. As you get more fit over time, your scores and daily goals adapt with you.*
*Daily Readiness requires a Fitbit Premium membership. Premium content recommendations are not available in all locales and may be in English only.
Stress Management Score
Get a handle on your stress. Your daily Stress Management Score makes it easy to see if your body is showing physical signs of stress. Higher score? You’re showing fewer signs of stress, keep up the good work! Lower score? Time to change things up and find better balance—try meditation or going for a walk.
Enjoy the freedom to improve how you are managing your mental and physical well-being anytime, anywhere. By doing regular EDA sessions on your Charge 5 so you can understand how your body reacts to stress over time, you can start to build a mindfulness practice and take steps to improve your mental well-being. Build up your personal mindfulness routine using your EDA app. Clinical studies have shown that mindfulness-based practices, such as meditation, are effective at helping to reduce stress.
