General Wellness

What is it? General wellness reflects the overall condition of your health, determined by a weighted score of your measured vital signs and profile information.

How do I interpret this value? A higher score indicates better overall health, while a lower score suggests room for improvement in vital signs. Engaging in healthy habits such as regular exercise, a balanced diet, and stress management can help improve general wellness.

How is it measured? General wellness is calculated from a weighted score of the user’s measured vital signs and the profile information.

Stress Level

What is it? Stress reflects your body’s response to physical, emotional, or psychological pressures. For many, this is a feeling of being tired, anxious, or overwhelmed. When you are under stress, your body releases certain hormones and chemicals that lead to an increase in your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure.

How do I interpret this value? Stress can be caused by anything, and the effects of stressors vary from person to person. High levels of stress may be caused by any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. It can also be caused by increased levels of excitement (or known as a feeling that your heart is racing).

How is it measured? Stress is measured from your heart rate variability (HRV), the beat-to-beat fluctuations in your heart. Your heart responds to different stressors by adjusting its beating pattern to keep your body in a stable condition. A higher HRV generally indicates less stress, as your heart is able to better respond to various stressors.
