Fitbit has launched a all-new fitness tracker that helps to monitor users’ stress levels.
The Fitbit Sense which is priced at â‚¬330, replaces the Ionic as the 13-year-old company’s most expensive smartwatch, excluding a limited edition model. This is the first to measure electrodermal activity, or how well skin conducts electricity, which varies with sweating and can indicate stress. The feature is pending approval from health regulators.
A Fitbit research scientist Samy Abdel-Ghaffar said that the new stress score would help its users to decide whether to take on a fresh project or instead take a break, sleep early or meditate.
