Track the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialized Grit and Flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly you descend, giving you a score to beat next time.

Know your body.

WRIST-BASED HEART RATE

Get estimated heart rate4 data along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities.

STRESS TRACKING

Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day.

SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING

Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights.

BODY BATTERY ENERGY MONITORING

Optimize your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.

PULSE OX

For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor5 uses light beams at your wrist to estimate how well your body is absorbing oxygen.

FITNESS AGE

This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity, resting heart rate and BMI to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. Get tips to lower your fitness age.

INTENSITY MINUTES

Track how many minutes of vigorous activity you’re getting, when you earn them and during what activity. You can even view them as a data field during timed activities.
