Does Biostrap take daytime readings?
Biostrap does take daytime readings, but the user will see very few daytime biometrics, if any, depending on environmental factors and their normal daily movement.
Our clinical-quality PPG sensor uses Red and Infrared LEDs, which allow us to penetrate much deeper into the tissue to get a very high-definition pulse waveform. These allow us to perform an in-depth analysis of the pulse!
However, it is almost impossible to get a good signal quality from this kind of sensor when you are moving or during high levels of light exposure.
The app can be set to attempt biometric readings every 10 minutes or every 5 minutes, but the frequency or timing of these can not be guaranteed.
We do sell two heart rate monitors (that use Green LEDs) that let you see your real-time heart rate and heart rate variability within the app!
TIP: You can always take a manual biometrics reading for a snapshot of your biometric data at any time throughout the day!
The most important data Biostrap collects is during your sleep, so please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not getting biometric data during your sleep session.
Does Biostrap do 24/7 or continuous readings?
Hi there! Currently, we do not take continuous readings or readings in real time. We do take measurements throughout the day. We take a high-definition snapshot using our clinical-quality sensors to gather biometrics such as resting HR, HRV, SpO2, ...
How to Interpret Biometric Readings
Biostrap is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition. Please consult with your doctor for any medical advice. Resting Heart Rate A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute. Generally, a lower heart rate ...
How do I take a manual biometrics reading?
With manual biometrics readings, you can take a snapshot of your biometrics at any given time. Make sure to sit quietly and stay still when recording! To take a manual biometrics recording in the Biostrap app, please go to: Record > Biometrics > ...
Why aren't I getting biometric data readings (ex: SpO2)?
The signals we use to capture the Oxygen Saturation percentage are generally very sensitive to light exposure and movement. These signals can very easily get distorted under any of the following conditions: When the wristband isn't tight enough When ...
Does Biostrap track active heart rate?
Short answer is: YES, you can see active HR in the Biostrap app with an external heart rate monitor! With the wristband device by itself, it’s important to note that we don’t currently take continuous or real-time measurements - including measuring ...
