Fitbit’s WEAR-ME study is exploring whether wearables can monitor metabolic health.

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.
