Owners of a Pixel Watch or Fitbit device are now getting a pretty solid free bonus that they used to have to pay for. Google and Fitbit have announced that the Health Metrics tab in the Fitbit app, which shows you important health-related information, is now available to all users for free.

Health Metrics, formerly a Fitbit Premium feature, shows breathing rate, skin temperature (if supported), oxygen saturation (SpO2), resting heart rate (RHR), and heart rate variability (HRV). This data can be viewed as a daily measurement, as well as in terms of a trend at intervals of 7, 30 and 90 days.

While this information should not be used as a substitute for professional medical guidance, this information can be helpful in tracking your menstrual cycle, finding out if you’re sick (or struggling with something), and improving your health over time ( or it gets worse). worst). Anyway, when you track these metrics, you start to know what your baseline is, and if any of them run out during the day, you can start asking questions about your previous day. Did you work out more or less, eat 8 slices of pizza, drink 5 bottles of beer or drink a couple of cocktails before bed, or sleep badly at night? All this can affect these numbers.

To access the Health Metrics dashboard, go to the Fitbit app and scroll through the home page until you see Health Metrics. If for some reason you don’t see it, you can click the Edit button at the top and then add it to your main toolbar.

Once in the Health Metrics area, you’ll find an overview of your day, as well as another tab for trends that cover these 7-day, 30-day, and 90-day time spans.

Time to go explore! Also, why is anyone paying for Fitbit Premium now?
