ECG & Daily Readiness Score Activates on Fitbit Charge 5

The Fitbit Charge 5 tracker is one of the advanced smart bands in our test lab. The Google-owned company has released forward-looking features inside the tracker, and ECG is one of them. The ECG & Daily Readiness Score are two features that were missing since the launching, are now coming to the Fitbit Charge 5. The company has enabled both features on the Charge 5, and the Daily Readiness Score activated for Fitbit Sense, Versa, Versa 3, Luxe, Inspire 2 and Charge 5 itself.

The ECG will work with the fitness band to detect the sign of AFib or Atrial Fibrillation and tells you to wether consult a doctor (Via The Verge). With an electrocardiogram, you can measure the electric activity of your heart. To get the results, you have to put fingers on the stainless steel side panels for 30 seconds. It will take a reading of the heart’s rhythm to assess for atrial fibrillation. The daily Readiness Score assists you with how much you should work on a particular day. With the high score & low score, it guides you whether you should work hard or go with low intense level activities.

The DRS collects data on your heart rate variability, sleep & your activity to provide the score. The DRS function comes at a premium price. To unlock the feature, you have to subscribe to a premium subscription of $9.99 for a month or $79.99 for a year. Both features rolled out with new firmware for Fitbit devices. To install it, update the Fitbit companion app on iOS & Android smartphones.
