Fitbit is working with Quest Diagnostics to see whether metrics like heart rate, heart rate variability, sleep cycles, and stress can be used to detect early signs of metabolic deterioration — a leading cause of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes.
To do that, WEAR-ME study participants will need their blood drawn so Fitbit can draw correlations and develop algorithms for assessing metabolic health. Not a typical step for these kinds of studies! This could be very cool, or perhaps end up as vaporware, but you can find more information here.
