Your Fitbit Can Now Track Your Stress Level

If you have a Fitbit, you know it already tracks an impressive amount of health and wellness markers. Now, the company has added yet another measurement: stress.

In tandem with the launch of the Luxe (which you can preorder now), Fitbit is also bringing new features to its older models, including Stress Score Technology.

Originally launched last year on the Fitbit Sense Smartwatch, the Stress Score technology analyzes your sleep data, heart rate, and activity and exertion levels to determine a score. Whenever your Fitbit updates, your stress score will also appear as a new tile in the Fitbit app.

Designed to replace the EDA (electrodermal activity) sensor that helped the Sense smartwatch measure stress, Fitbit devices that are still on the market (Versa 3, Versa 2, Inspire 2, and Charge 4) will also receive the new stress-tracking tech.

The ability to track and measure your stress level will likely be an eye-opening experience. Whenever that score is too high, try some of these quick methods to relax.
