The new devices, however, are increasingly packed with much more sophisticated sensors. Products such as the Jawbone UP3, Basis Peak and the Microsoft Band have sensors that measure a person’s galvanic skin response, which is a measure of how easily an electrical current can travel over the skin, and changes when someone sweats. These sweat levels can in theory be tied to stress levels, Ledger said. The Microsoft Band and the Basis Peak, along with several other new trackers, such as the Mio Fuse, also measure a person’s heart rate by using light-based sensors, which shine light through the skin and measure how those light waves are reflected back. Earlier generations of fitness trackers could be paired with a chest-strap heart rate monitor, which wirelessly communicated with the tracker. The new devices can not only tell people their heart rate, but also may reveal their heart rate variability, which is also a measure of stress .
