One of the things I am obsessed with is ‘Measures’, digital ones for that matter.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the digital that will come to your mind in this digital era! It’s some simple statistics, personally of me.
Apple Watch is my primary tool and my weighing scale my active companion.
Apple Watch measures my performances when I do yoga, swimming, strength training, walking and other physical tasks. It also counts active and total calories for each activity and gives a daily total. It measures and compares performance against a standard. All good.
Five days moving average and even comments on achievements are all there. Even better.
The one area which is close to my heart is the sleep measurement and heart rates.
Obviously I wear the watch when I go to bed. And I have problems with sleep.
It’s not that I can’t sleep, but my nightly sleep is what I get before 6 am on a night. If I go to bed at 10 pm then I get a total sleep of 8 hours. If I am a night owl (I am one) and go to bed at midnight, then total sleep is 6 hours.
The watch then analyses my sleep for quality like deep sleep, disturbed sleep along with heartbeats like resting heartbeat, waking heartbeat etc.
All good, but my ‘HeartWatch’ app fails many a time. I downloaded pillow and the two show different readings.
What the Heck!
