New week over week changes insights: steps and resting heart rate

Often it’s interesting to know how your body and behavior change over time. That’s why we’re introducing a new insights feature: week over week changes. Beginning next week, members will receive weekly insights when Evidation observes a significant change in your weekly step count or average resting heart rate.

How it works

If you connect a wearable device to Evidation and give us permission to analyze your data, we’ll analyze your daily steps and resting heart rate data each week to determine if there was a notable change between last week and the week prior. In this case a “notable” change means at least a 20% change in your average daily step count. For resting heart rate, notable means at least a 5 beat per minute change in your average daily resting heart rate.

How do I interpret my week over week changes?

How do I get my week over week change alerts

In order to receive week over week change insights you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Use a wearable device that logs either steps or heart rate (or both!) and connect it to the Evidation app. Make sure you enable sharing of steps and heart rate data when you connect your device.

  1. Wear your device at least 6 days per week. We need enough data on a weekly basis in order to accurately detect meaningful changes.

How often will I get my week over week change alerts?

You’ll receive weekly alerts if you wore your device enough during the week, have your device connected, and we detect a meaningful change. If you do not receive an insight and have your device connected, it means we didn’t find any significant changes in your steps or resting heart rate.
