Why Companion wellbeing metrics are important
Whether you want to track your data for peace of mind, or to help identify patterns, the watch wearer and support network have easy access to important wellbeing metrics. These can be shared with healthcare professionals to illustrate concerns.
Activity is an essential ingredient to physical wellness, particularly in later life. Exercise, even light, can help to improve mood, sleep patterns, motor skills and memory. Research has repeatedly shown a clear link between physical activity and cognitive performance.
Heart rate monitoring can provide an insight into the health of your heart and your body as a whole. For example, a resting heart rate that is too fast may be a sign of stress, sleep deprivation or an underlying heart condition.
Monitoring respiration can help to detect the first signs of deterioration in the watch wearer’s general health. In such cases the body will respond by fighting to maintain the correct level of oxygen, and this may well be reflected in the data shown in the Companion app.
A change in respiratory rate can indicate respiratory failure. Studies show people who suffer cardiac and respiratory events could have been warned up to 24 hours in advance simply by monitoring respiratory rate.
