The Fitbit Sense successor comes with a new Body Response sensor to track continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) for all-day stress management right from users’ wrist. Along with cEDA, it uses metrics like heart rate, heart rate variability and skin temperature to help users better understand when their body experiences potential signs of stress. “That way, you can be aware of your potential triggers and create a stress management practice to build your resilience over time,” the company says. Additionally, Sense 2 features Body Response notification that recommends different ways to manage stress in the moment including mood logging, guided breathing, mindfulness sessions, on-wrist or in the Fitbit app.
