The new EDA sensor on Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity responses.

Using the EDA Scan app, place your palm over the face of the device to detect small electrical changes in the sweat level of your skin.

“You can do a quick EDA Scan session on device to see your responses, or pair it with guided mindfulness sessions in the Fitbit app to see how your body responds during meditation or relaxation,”

the company said.

At the end of your session, you will see an EDA response graph on-device and in the mobile app to gauge your progress over time and reflect on how you feel emotionally.

Fitbit Premium members will get a detailed breakdown on how the score is calculated, which consists of over 10 biometric inputs, including exertion balance (impact of activity), responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity from the EDA Scan app), and sleep patterns (sleep quality).

Fitbit Sense has another feature called Active Zone Minutes, which helps users make every minute count during workouts by buzzing their wrist when they enter their personalised target heart rate zones.
