The level of accuracy that consumers are expecting when it comes to technology products is paramount, so the 'FitPal' health tracker is designed to operate like an ECG monitor to keep track of heart health.

Aside from expected features like tracking activity, heart rate and sleep quality, the 'FitPal' health tracker is also capable of monitoring stress levels, heart rate variability as well as the ability to detect irregular heartbeats. From here, users can see where and when deviations are occurring to help identify lifestyle activities that might be causing them. This data can also be shared with healthcare professionals to broaden conversations about how to improve one's lifestyle.

Worn on the body like a sticker rather than on the wrist, the 'FitPal' health tracker is also able to record skin temperature.
