Wearables that can track stress

Wearables that can track stress

Digit Expert | 17 Jan 2020

While the importance of fitness has taken over our lives, stress is something that not everyone takes that seriously. However, it certainly isn’t something that you should be cavalier about! Did you know that stress is a major contributor to the development of heart disease? This is because it raises your cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, and even cortisol and adrenaline levels. All of this not only impacts heart function, but also leads to the buildup of plaque in arteries, an increase in the development of blood clots, and higher chances of cardiovascular disease. While you can’t always avoid stress in your life, it makes a ton of sense to monitor and control the same. To do so, get your hands on these wearables that can track stress!

Garmin Forerunner 245 Music

The Garmin Forerunner 245 Music is one of the top choices for runners, as it offers advanced running dynamics when used with its Running Dynamics Pod. This feature tracks stride length, ground contact time balance, and vertical ratio, amongst other parameters that indicate whether you’re running well. This wearable can also track your vitals to tell you whether you’re overdoing your training, or not pushing yourself hard enough, thereby, letting you make the most of every single training session you indulge in. Finally, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music also offers safety and tracking features during which it detects a fall and sends SOS to emergency contacts along with your real-time location.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is a sleek device with a vibrant display, making it ideal for users who want to be able to refer to their wearables for more than just fitness tracking. The full-colour Super AMOLED screen lets you access a world of apps, check notifications, and even customise the face to suit your mood.  More importantly, the wearable continuously monitors your heart rate and stress levels and sends out notifications every time one of them crosses the healthy threshold. You can access the Breath Session feature when alerted to high-stress levels, as this helps you calm down and even practice a little bit of mindful meditation right when you need it the most.

Huawei Watch GT2 Sport

If you are looking for a fitness tracker that comes with long battery life, then the Huawei Watch GT2 Sport is one of the options that you can consider. Huawei claims that the battery can last up to three weeks on a single charge, and while that may depend on usage, this does sound like a pretty decent deal. One of the features that may contribute to the battery life is the wear-detection that puts the device in power-saving mode when it senses that it’s not being worn by the user. Apart from the battery, the Huawei Watch GT2 Sport offers a range of decent features that help you monitor stress such as continuous heart rate monitoring which tells you about your average heart rate, resting heart rate and continuous heart rate. Additionally, it monitors your sleep, which can come in handy as poor sleep quality can be one of the factors in your life that contribute to feeling stressed.

Samsung Galaxy Watch

For those on the hunt for a proper smartwatch that can also track your fitness, heart rate, calories burnt, distance covered and even pace of exercise, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch is a good option to consider. The wearable notifies you of appointments and important occasions and is also supposed to be swim-resistant, making it a decent option that offers nearly all the features that most other wearables in its price range offer. This wearable is ideal for users who want something that looks like a regular watch.
