Meet the world’s first EDA sensor in a wearable
See your body’s response to stress with an innovative multi-path sensor. It detects tiny electrical changes called electrodermal activity (EDA) responses on your skin.
Measure your body’s response to stress
Simply place your palm on the Sense screen or pinch your fingers around Charge 5 to get feedback on your stress. While you do a mindfulness session, the EDA Scan app detects your electrodermal activity.
Improve your mental health
By doing regular EDA sessions and tracking your responses over time, you can build a mindfulness practice and improve your mental well-being. Clinical studies have shown that mindfulness-based practice, such as meditation, is most effective at reducing stress.*
See a daily Stress Management Score in the Fitbit app ranging from 1 to 100—where a higher number means you’re showing fewer physical signs of stress.
With Fitbit Premium, members see a detailed breakdown of the three metrics that form the score: responsiveness, exertion balance and sleep patterns.**
Is your body showing the “fight or flight” response? Your heart rate data and electrodermal activity (Sense only) can let you know. A higher number means you’ve shown fewer of these signs the last few days.
Too little physical activity can raise your stress hormone levels, but too much activity can lead to fatigue and bodily stress. A higher number means you’re getting the right balance of activity for you.
Good sleep makes it easier for your body to deal with stress. A higher sleep patterns score means you’re well-equipped to handle stress based on your recent sleep patterns.
Keep track of how you’re feeling from Very Calm to Very Stressed to gain awareness of your emotional well-being and how it changes. Together, your reflections and Stress Management Scores give you a holistic picture of how well you’re handling stress.
