Review: 30 Days with the @Healbe GoBe2 Health/Fitness Tracker

Heart rate

The GoBe2 doesn’t track heart rate the way most other devices do.

The Healbe GoBe2 uses something called a piezo sensor. The piezo sensor detects changes in the blood pressure on the vessel walls. This is a very accurate way of measuring heart rate while at rest. Resting heart rate is a very important factor that can indicate your overall cardiovascular health.

Healbe seems to focus more on that and frankly, that seems to be the growing trend among fitness trackers. Most people are more focused on their RHR anyway.

This is, however, where one of my gripes come into play.

I found the GoBe2 heart rate measurements to be very inaccurate during periods of exercise.

You’ll notice that there’s a difference of almost 50 BPM between the Gear S3’s optical sensor and the GoBe2’s piezo sensor. (Pictured above)

My understanding is this is a limitation of the sensor technology. That being said, throughout the day, during normal activity, the GoBe2 was spot on when compared to my Gear S3. Again, for me, this isn’t a deal breaker because I’m personally more focused on my resting heart and making changes in my life that help to lower it.

The GoBe2 uses a combination of continuous heart rate monitoring and FLOW technology to accurately measure calorie burn.

I can say that when my energy balance is in the negative for a few days, I end up showing weight loss. It seems to be a solid indicator that I’m heading in the right direction.
