The GoBe2 estimates your stress level once an hour by checking on your heart rate. It then uses a complex algorithm to analyze your sleep quality data and anthropometrical (the scientific study of the measurements and proportions of the human body) factors like body weight, height, sex, and age. It then estimates your stress level.
You can see that your stress levels are displayed inside the app on an hourly diagram or chart. Stress is rated on a scale of 1 to 5. 1 being no stress and 5 being Hight Stress Level.
This doesn’t function like some kind of mood ring. It takes many factors into account and gives you an idea of how much stress your body is feeling. This doesn’t necessarily translate to feeling stress out.
I feel like this a good, general guide, that can help you become more aware of your body and what’s its experiencing. You can gain insight that can help you make better decisions about managing your stress.
