Fitbit Sense

The Fitbit Sense has a larger AMOLED display and a new design language that is inspired by the human body. The device is lightweight, premium, and is built to last with aerospace-grade aluminum and stainless steel. It is also water-resistant up to 50 meters.

Fitbit Sense is touted as the company's most advanced health smartwatch with a wide array of new sensors and features. As stated earlier, it has the world's first electrodermal activity sensor that helps monitor and manages stress levels. It also has a new ECG app, on-wrist skin temperature sensor, advanced heart rate tracking technology, and 6+ day battery life. It also comes with 6 months if Fitbit Premium for FREE.

The new EDA sensor on the Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity responses. Via the EDA Scan app, place your palm over the face of the device to detect small electrical changes in the sweat level of your skin. The EDA responses can help you understand your body's response to stressors and help you then manage it. You can do quick EDA scan sessions or pair it with guided mindfulness sessions in the Fitbit app to see how your body responds during meditation or relaxation. At the end of each session, a graph will be provided on-device and mobile app to measure your progress.

Fitbit’s new Stress Management Score calculates how your body is responding to stress based on your heart rate, sleep, and activity level data. Available with Fitbit Sense, it can be found in the new stress management tile in the Fitbit app. The score ranges from 1 to 100 with a higher score indicating that your body is showing fewer physical signs of stress. The score will also come with stress management recommendations such as breathing exercises and mindfulness tools.

Fitbit Premium members will get a detailed breakdown on how the score is calculated, which consists of over 10 biometric inputs, including exertion balance (impact of activity), responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity from the EDA Scan app), and sleep patterns (sleep quality).
